Song Spotlight: Allison Crowe - "Going Home Tonight"

Allison Crowe is currently working on a new album called Spiral.  A pre-release version of one of the album's songs, "Going Home Tonight", has been made available via the music blog Muruch.  This is one of the best songs I have ever heard from Allison, which is really saying a lot, as I have been a huge fan of hers for a couple of years now.  A simple, repeating piano figure provides a gentle backdrop for Allison's vocals, which are as amazingly powerful and beautiful as ever.  What's really new in this song is the string section, which soars alongside the vocals and gives the song an epic feel that one might expect to hear on a movie soundtrack.
When this song was posted on Allison's Facebook page, I asked when the album will be coming out, and the response was "likely to be late '09 or very early 2010."  If "Going Home Tonight" is in any way indicative of the direction Allison is taking for Spiral, then I think we are all in for a really big treat.  I'll be posting about it as soon as I am able to.  In the meantime, happy listening!

Happy to hear you so happy, Jeff!

There's plenty of thrills over the years from Allison's concerts and recordings.

I've never been so anxious and excited for the release of anything, as I am right now for Spiral.

Naturally, we have to get there - still, it's my sense we're experiencing a great artist expanding her palette, with contributions and collaborations from just the right group of talented musicians.

Allison has, today, wrapped her recording for the album, and now, we enjoy the wonder of producer, orchestrator Kayla Schmah.

Thanks for sharing the excitement/music!!

best', Adrian

p.s. I am almost certain that Allison said she's wrapped her recording. She'd planned for more harmonies, but, hearing how the orchestration is going with the songs, she's decided to leave more space...

at the very least we're soooo close to the next phase

hi Jeff, and best wishes of this New Year!! fyi, we're oh-so-close to completion of Allison's new album... the orchestrator/producer has been working on a movie project these past couple of weeks, and, shouldn't be much more than a week of her being back on the album and it'll be ready... now, just not sure when that week'll come... I predict February!! I believe we'll all be happy ( :

cheers, Ad
