Tracey Thorn : I just wanted you to hear

Tracey Thorn has updated her myspace page with a new song called Overture that she's done with Hungarian group Unbending Trees. She says it will be released as a digital single on September 29. The track, a duet with Trees singer Kristof Hajos, starts as an elegant piano piece and slowly blossoms with delicate strings. It will be a lovely piece for autumn. Music for adults.

Tracey also says this of her recent recording:

Progress on my new album consists of me having had dinner with Ewan Pearson! Hurrah! We did manage to at least have a conversation about the next bit of recording, which will happen in the autumn, and by then things will be really taking shape... this week I am meeting up with Jens Lekman, to do something or other. There will be a guitar, and a mic, and Jens with his laptop, and who knows what may come of it. a number one single possibly. Or an obscure b-side. You don't really have b-sides nowadays do you. Pity really, they were always our best tracks.

The great drawing of her above is done by her daughter. How do I love thee, Tracey? Let me count the ways.

Her voice is always so beautiful.

Few singers go straight to my heart that way she does.

That picture is adorable!

And as for the song, really love it. It sat quite nicely as the afternoon rain hit my window this afternoon when I listened to it. Just lovely.

It's great.

But a Thorn/Lekman collabo?

The holy grail of potential genius!
