Editors’ Notes

Tracey Thorn has always possessed the kind of heart-stirring voice that careful listeners find so endearing. Her work with Everything But the Girl brought the material to life and her 2007 solo album, Out of the Woods turned her towards electro-pop that made for exciting, cutting-edge sounds but which left the beautiful longing in her voice behind. Now, working with the same producer, Ewan Pearson, she records this set of piano-based rainy-day ballads that are completely satisfying. “Oh, The Divorces!” and “Long White Dress” start things with a gentle prodding before “Hormones” kicks up a clubland backbeat. “Why Does The Wind?” equally steps it up. But tracks such as “Singles Bar” and Lee Hazlewood’s “Come On Home To Me,” sung with Jens Lekman, are spiked with a tentative fear, a sense that maybe aging is the perfect answer to youth’s restless ennui. “Swimming” is exactly the kind of tune one expects to hear from Thorn, a polished and mature piece of writing and performance. However, the bonus cuts, demos recorded in Berlin, are equally entrancing and prove Thorn is always at the ready to deliver a first-rate performance.

Customer Reviews

Timeless classic - welcome back!!

This is the Tracy Thorn (Everything but the Girl) CD I have been waiting for! I've been a fan since I was at university in England and saw them perform live (a VERY long time ago!). EBTG took me places I didn't think an English duo could take me - samba, South American rythyms, perfect jazz, an incredible acoustic album, perfect pop, techno - always with Tracy's stunning voice. I was not a fan of her last effort, but this CD finds Tracy back at her best - beautiful melodies, great writing, great timeless pop and that voice - that beautiful, stunning voice. The CD is an instant classic, and I couldn't be happier. Welcome back!!

Get it now!

If you love her last one, or Everything but the Girl, get this now. Another excellent turn by an amazing voice.


WOW,this album is awesome! I've been a big EBTG/Tracey fan for a long time and I feel this is some of Tracey's best music ever. Her voice sounds great and the songs are amazing.
Get this cd NOW!!


Genre: Alternative

One of the most enduring English singer/songwriters, Tracey Thorn began making music with Stern Bops and then, more notably, Marine Girls, a minimalist pop group that released a pair of albums inspired by Young Marble Giants and the Raincoats. While Marine Girls were active, Thorn released A Distant Shore, a relatively moody, if similarly skeletal solo album, on Cherry Red in 1982. Around that time, she met Ben Watt -- who was also signed to Cherry Red -- and formed a partnership as Everything But...
