George Michael made the first lyric video before it was even a thing. We yawn at lyric videos now, but in 1990 this was an unprecented, very big deal. And both the song “Praying for Time” and its video seem just as, if not more, relevant today…
I’m used to keeping secrets for Allison Crowe, but this one was especially difficult not to shout from the hills. I drove everyone (online & off) crazy with my enthusiastic love for Allison’s traditional folk album, Newfoundland Vinyl. So you can imagine how excited I was to learn she will release Newfoundland Vinyl II on December 2nd!!!! Ahhhh!!! And here’s the first taste of the album, a lyric video for the traditional folk song about the 1875 shipwreck of a vessel called “The Water Witch.”

Mary Lambert‘s long-awaited debut full-length album, Heart of My Sleeve, will be released on October 14th via Capitol Records. Here’s the new lyric video for the first single, “Secrets.” While I prefer Mary’s voice without so much pop polish, her unabashedly confessional lyrics continue to connect and effect.
