Annie Lennox To Release New Album, Nostalgia

602537995325_p0_v1_s600

Annie Lennox is the latest singer to try her hand at the Great American Songbook.  Her new album of standards, Nostalgia, arrived September 30, on vinyl.

The disc won’t be released on other formats, like CD and digital, until October 21.  The content, however, will be the same: a collection of classic songs such as “Georgia on My Mind,” “Summertime,” “The Nearness of You,” “God Bless the Child” and “Mood Indigo.”  Lennox says she chose the material after spending hours on YouTube researching these types of songs.

“I was just curious, I thought, ‘I wonder what my voice would be like.  Would these songs suit my voice?’  It was like a little challenge,” the former Eurythmics frontwoman tells Billboard.  “I just sort of got to know them, became friends with them really and had a great deal of joy in the process.”

In 1995, Annie released an album of cover songs called Medusa, but those were relatively modern songs, by the likes of The Temptations, Neil Young, The Clash, Paul Simon and Bob Marley.

Here’s the track listing for Nostalgia:

“Memphis in June”
“Georgia on My Mind”
“I Cover the Waterfront”
“Summertime”
“I Put a Spell on You”
“Strange Fruit”
“God Bless the Child”
“September in the Rain”
“You Belong to Me”
“I Can Dream, Can’t I”
“The Nearness of You”
“Mood Indigo”

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Beatles HELP Prints By Steve Thomas On May 23, 2014

Dark Hall Mansion is excited to introduce its latest officially licensed limited edition Beatles release: “HELP” by contemporary artist, Steve Thomas.

Dark Hall Mansion, working with Apple Corps Ltd and Bravado International, their North American licensing agent, will release their new 4-print Beatles limited edition screen print on May 23, 2014. Artist Steve Thomas has referenced various iconic 1965 Beatles touchstones for his “HELP” set-the classic ski slope photo stills of the Beatles during the filming of “HELP,” some exceedingly rare vintage promotional door panels used in the initial film campaign promoting “HELP’s” original release, and of course, the legendary “HELP” album cover itself, all while making the 4-print design and set very much his own.

Rendered in sharp, bold colors, both Standard and Variant editions set their own distinctive tones, each individual print within each set measures 18″ x 24″ with the yellow Standard edition fully screen printed and the blue artist-signed Variant edition via giclee beautifully capturing Steve’s gradient fade background that harkens to those classic Beatles “HELP” stills.

With an extremely limited release of only 200 Standard Edition 4-print sets available for all Beatles fans, worldwide, and an even more limited, artist-signed Variant edition of only 50 4-print sets with all 4 prints individually signed by artist Steve Thomas, it’s a Beatles release collectors will not want to miss.

The Standard edition Beatles 4-print “HELP” set will price at $250 and includes free shipping anywhere in the world.

The artist-signed 4-print Variant “HELP” edition, with only 50 sets available worldwide, will price at $350 and also includes free shipping anywhere! From Japan to New York and all stops in between, for Beatles fans near and far, Stop Worrying! “HELP” is on the Way!
