Madeleine Peyroux Readies New Album ANTHEM For August 31 Release + Sets U.S. Tour

A compelling storyteller's voice shines through on Madeleine Peyroux's confident 'Anthem', out August 31st (UMG). The lyrics are smart, witty and darkly hopeful, and Peyroux's characters and settings are so vividly drawn, it's as if a series of short films have come alive through song. Peyroux's cinematic storytelling is utterly engaging, enhanced by the spot-on accompaniment that complements each track - the mischievous harmonica on 'ASunday Afternoon', the wicked guitar on 'Down on Me', the pace of the understated 'Anthem' (a Leonard Cohen cover,) and the sly, delightful 'Honey Party'.

'Anthem' was Produced and co-written by four-time Grammy Winner Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock). Detailed song notes and album bio follow below and reveal the pedigree of collaborators on the project. Overall, from its remarkable writing to its savvy mix of subtly topical commentary and outright irreverence, Peyroux's 'Anthem' marks a defining moment in the career of a long-respected artist - it's an album that captures the maturity, humor, intelligence and depth of a woman who has something meaningful to say, even as she entertains.
