Realising that she wouldn’t be able to follow up on “Seasons of My Soul” with an LP containing her own material quickly enough to keep up the momentum, she decided to do the cover versions.
The tracklist was released on her Facebook page yesterday:
P.F. Sloan – Jimmy Webb, Be Nice To Me – Todd Rundgren, It Could Be The First Day – Richie Havens, Travelin’ Boy – Paul Williams, A Man Needs A Maid – Neil Young, Soulsville – Isaac Hayes, The Same Old Tears On A New Background – Stephen Bishop, Soul Rebel – Bob Marley, Flyin’ Shoes – Townes Van Zandt, Home Thoughts From Abroad – Clifford T Ward, We Will – Gilbert O Sullivan, My Cricket – Leon Russell
Sara Smile -Hall and Oates, Just For A Moment – Ronnie Lane, Andre Johray – Tim Hardin, Brave Awakening – Terry Reid, Welcome Back – John Sebastian.
Although these songs may be obscure for todays generation, there are some well known songs on the list.
Rumer’s next own album is scheduled for summer 2013 and will be titled – according to Rumer – “Into Color” and will reflect the direction she wants to take with her music in the future. “if ‘Seasons of My Soul’ is blue, ‘Into Color’ is going to be yellow – sunnier, more hopeful, happier”, she says.
In the span of 5 months RUMER will have released 3 albums in the USA this calendar year. I wonder if we will now catch up with the rest of the music-loving world? Sarah Joyce is a once in a lifetime talent. Take your pick. All 3 albums will enhance your Life.
