After a Grammy nomination, and top 10s in The New Yorker and Time Magazine, Tift Merritt took a hiatus with a piano in Paris and came home with her best and most personal songs to date. Her new album Another Country was released February 26 to rave reviews.
“This is a happy record,” Teddy Thompson says of his new Verve Forecast release A Piece of What You Need. “Well, maybe not happy, but upbeat. Actually, maybe not upbeat, but it does have some up-tempo songs! Anyway, it's as close as I've gotten to making the record I've always wanted to make.”
Indeed, happy or not, A Piece of What You Need — Thompson's fourth album overall and his third for Verve — is the London–born, New York–based artist's most ambitious and accomplished effort to date, showcasing his formidable vocal, songwriting and guitar talents while venturing into rewarding new musical and lyrical territory.
