Martha Wainwright - Love Will Be Reborn (Vinyl)Martha Wainwright is beginning again. The beguiling performer and songwriter makes a most welcome return with Love Will Be Reborn, her first new album in five years, released August 20th.
It's her first album since 2016's 'Goodnight City', and the first since 2012's acclaimed 'Come Home To Mama' to feature so much original material. All eleven songs on 'Love Will Be Reborn' are written by Martha. She wrote the first song, and what would become the title track, a few years ago in what was a very dark time for her personally.
Recorded in Martha's Montreal hometown, the album was made in the basement of café Ursa which also served as a studio and at PM Studios. Martha plays guitar and piano and enlisted the help of Toronto musicians Thom Gill (guitars, keys, back-ups) Phil Melanson (drums, percussion) and Josh Cole (bass). Pierre Marchand plays keyboards on 'Love Will Be Reborn' plus two other tracks while Morgan Moore plays bass on several songs.
'Love Will Be Reborn' was produced by Pierre Marchand, best known for his work with Rufus Wainwright on 'Poses', the McGarrigle's on 'Heartbeats Accelerating' and much of Sarah McLaughlin's 90's catalogue.
