180g Vinyl! Lennox Covers Iconic American Songs Including "Summertime," "Georgia On My Mind," "Mood Indigo," and More!

2015 Grammy Nominee for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album!

Nostalgia is the sixth studio album by Scottish singer-songwriter Annie Lennox. It will be Lennox's first LP in four years and her third cover album. The album is a collection of Lennox's favorite songs from youth.

Many of the 12 songs here are rooted in the blues, which have always combined the beautiful and painful — crossroads Lennox knows all too well. These songs haunt as much as they enchant. On “Nostalgia,” her sublime interpretations of these classics renders them both timeless and new, bringing an intoxicating intimacy to the material that makes us want to lean in closer to the speakers to breathe in her every nuance.

Some of the masterpieces on “Nostalgia” are more than 80 years old, yet they stand as relevant and poignant today as when first written. They are permanent fixtures in a transitory world, and, like artists such as Nina Simone, Ray Charles and Billie Holiday, who performed them before her, Lennox proves herself to be a more than worthy and faithful steward of these precious treasures for the short time they are under her watch.

As she did on “Medusa,” her lovingly curated 1995 collection of some of her favorite songs, Lennox doesn’t so much as sing on “Nostalgia,” as she shares her soul. She possesses the well-known melodies, filtering them through her life’s experience, and alchemizes them into something entirely new, transporting them beyond the realm of traditional covers. She consumes the songs so fully that is as if they have entered her bloodstream and she has opened her veins so all can absorb the songs as passionately and fully as she has.

Annie Lennox describes Nostalgia as the album she has been waiting her whole life to record. Produced by Lennox and frequent collaborator Mike Stevens, the collection features hauntingly beautiful takes on iconic American songs such as "Summertime", "Mood Indigo" and "Strange Fruit". While the album pays tribute to some of the greatest artists of the 20th century (Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday), the songs were also chosen for their continuing ability to resonate in the 21st century. The Scottish artist has sold 80 million records and won four Grammys, two MTV VMAs, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. VH1 named her "The Greatest White Soul Singer Alive" and Rolling Stone counted her as one of "The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time".
