This new album, Dancing With The Beast, is her first recording of all new material since 2016’s ‘Blackbirds’, which won her an Americana Music Association UK award for International Album of the Year as well as International Song of the Year for the title track. This new album is every bit as good. Americana UK. 50 minutes of exquisite-sounding emotional devastation, depression, murder and heartbreak – The Tennessean.
Blackbirds (reprise) For a relatively new song, Blackbirds has already had several lives. Ben Glover and I recorded it as a duet on his fine album Atlantic, and sang it that way for several shows on an Irish tour in 2013. When it came time for me to record it, I couldn’t decide on the arrangement. I loved the angry bite of the faster version, and I loved the bleak landscape of the slower one. We tried it both ways, and we still couldn’t decide. If you’re waking in the night wondering where the years went, stay the hell away from Gretchen Peters’s Blackbirds. Within sight of her own seventh decade, Peters decided that it shouldn’t just be artists such as Springsteen, Dylan and Cohen who get to explore mortality, that, considering how their careers are so often built upon appearance as much as talent, maybe women have something to say, too.

Blackbirds (Reprise) Lyrics. The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane Raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane And I’m covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene And no matter what I do I can’t get clean Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall Whisky in your voice and a shotgun on. the wall Now there’s shadows in the shadows, there’s trouble in the cane And there’s things you do that you just can’t explain
This album has a fantastic ending. Its last third is a pleasant journey. However, it is a long way til if finally arrives there, so the first two thirds may be a little boring. Black Ribbons" is an absolute "must-listen-to". Or consider a donation? MISC LISTS.
