Melody Gardot. The Absence

Jazz artist Melody Gardot has just released "The Absence" her 3rd CD. This time, she hooks up with noted guitarist and film composer Heitor Periera.

Gardot's third album reflects her time spent travelling the globe in support of her two previous releases, Worrisome Heart and My One and Only Thrill. After exploring the deserts of Morocco, the tango bars of Buenos Aires, the beaches of Brazil, and the streets of Lisbon, the Philadelphia-based artist captured the essence of these exotic locales in her new music.

Gardot found her voice during music therapy sessions after she was hit by a car at age 19. Now 25, the singer also models for luxury brands Lanvin and Piaget in between sold-out concerts around the globe.

The Absence is available on iTunes and Amazon, and is streaming in full on Spotify.

Extra! Extra! Prince To Release New CD Via Newspaper; WB Update


Prince's new CD 20Ten (some title) will be released first through a Belgium newspaper on July 10.  An interview took place with the newspaper which teases the release.

Other newspaper deals may follow as deals were trying to be reached.  Warner Bros. was mentioned as releasing the CD to other countries not participating in the newspaper giveaway.  More than likely that means the U.S. as when he did the giveaway before, the U.S. was not part of it.

As we previously reported, Prince met with Warner Bros. Records on Tuesday, and the distribution deal appears to already be in place.  We have learned what was discussed was the deal, but also something else.  So, this distribution deal could actually lead to something else.  Hmm.   I still want a live DVD.

Tuesday night, Prince attended a show by Cassandra Wilson in Hollywood.  As we mentioned before, he is in town for the BET Awards this Sunday where he is recieveng the Lifetime Achievement Award, but is not performing.
