Foy Vance WILD SWAN Vinyl Record

Foy Vance WILD SWAN Vinyl Record
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. 2016 release from the Irish singer/songwriter. The Wild Swan was recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studios with Grammy Award-winner Jacquire King. Recording legend Elton John is the album's Executive Producer. The Wild Swan opens with 'Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution', a rock 'n' blues celebration of a roll-call of musical, philosophical, literary and polemical insurrectionists. It ends with a dash of uillean pipes and 'The Wild Swans On The Lake', a stop-you-in-your-tracks breath of Celtic balladry inspired by WB Yeats' The Wild Swans At Coole. Vance's rich voice also gets up close and personal on the hymnal 'Burden', then digs deep for 'She Burns', a song and a performance evocative of Bruce Springsteen's 'Tunnel Of Love'. On the ancient-but-modern Be 'Like You Belong', Vance's soulful rasp weaves through pedal-steel and simple piano chords.' Ziggy Looked Me In The Eye' is a piano-based, strings-buoyed soul-stirrer, a dignified tribute to, says Vance, "various people who I think have been part of a revolution. I'm not talking about Che Guevara or Ghandi or even Russell Brand for that matter - I'm talking about personal revolution. I like that idea constantly revolting against your own parameters."
