In 1985, songer-songwriter Suzanne Vega released her stunning self-titled debut album. After 25 years, seven Grammy nominations and seven million album sales, she is widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation.
Now Suzanne is reinterpreting a majority of her catalogue in an intimate and personal way, creating four new thematic albums that will be released over the next two years.
First is Close-Up Vol 1: Love Songs, which will include stripped down versions of Marlene On The Wall, bossa nova favourite Caramel and many more. Check out our review of the album here.
Suzanne has made the album available to hear in full, ahead of its 14th June release date, exclusively on musicOMH through music streaming site WE7. Press the buttons below to make sounds happen.
