A travers un véritable éloge publié sur son blog myspace, Janis Ian nous en apprend plus sur sa collaboration avec Angela pour son nouvel album LIFE ! Elles ont ainsi enregistré 8 chansons ensemble dont on connait aujourd’hui 4 titres : Every Woman’s Song, Bop, Bop, Bop, Rainbow World et Unbreakable !

Just a quick update: I recorded 8 tracks with the fabulous Angela Aki, with a stellar band (Angela herself on piano, Tim Marks on bass, legendary Eddie Bayers on drums, Eric Darken on percussion, Chris Leuzinger on electric guitars, and yours truly on all the acoustic guitar parts and Wurlitzer!). I have to say, she’s one of the best writers I’ve ever worked with – soooo deep, soooo concentrated, so commercial and yet so much fun. We wrote a fabulous fabulous homage to all women, of all ages, of all races and nationalities, called « Every Woman’s Song, » a really fun out of the box radio song called « Bop, Bop, Bop », and a fabulously fun radio-play song called « Rainbow World ». I have to admit, though, that my personal favorite of the songs we recorded is a song I didn’t write… alas. Angela co-wrote it with Jess Leary (who you may remember as co-writer on my own « This Train Still Runs »). The title is « Unbreakable », and if there’s any justice in this world, Sony US will wake up and make this woman a star here, as she is in Japan already!

Just a quick update: I spent some more time writing with Angela Aki – Pat and I now consider her and Taro family. I have to say, she’s one of the best writers I’ve ever worked with – soooo deep, soooo concentrated, so commercial and yet so much fun.

Pour rappel, il s’agit de la 2ème collaboration entre Angie et Janis Ian ; la première datant de 2008. Voici les quelques passages du blog myspace de Janis Ian concernant cette 1ère collaboration !

1er Mai 2008

Oh my… what a long, long month April was! No sooner had I gotten home from Cerritos than Angela Aki arrived from Japan to visit with me and do a bit of songwriting. We had an absolute ball together. Her first day, she got stuck in the studio while I recorded five special tracks for the upcoming Best of Janis Ian: The Autobiography Collection, our two-disc CD set that will accompany the book release. Then we discovered that only friend chicken Angela had ever had was Colonel Sanders! So our friends Marty & Linda stepped up to the plate, cooking up a real Southern meal for her – fried chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, the works.

Angela Aki fuels reveals the secret of her awecome creative drive: Goo-Goo Clusters and beer.

Her two weeks in Nashville kind of went by in a blur for me; I was simultaneously trying to write with Angela, set her up with Jess Leary and Buddy Mondlock for some more writing, show her a bit of the South, get organized and packed for my own Japan tour, finish up the album artwork with John, approve the edits in my autobiography, and half a dozen other things too boring to mention here. But we did end up writing two really good songs, and more important, we had a excellent time with each other.

Janis and Angela celebrate writing *2* songs together.

[…] Then it was off to Japan! I played Osaka, then Tokyo, where Angela surprised everyone by not only coming to two shows, but singing the encore, « Will You Dance? » with me at each one. It was fabulous; I took a verse in English, she took the next in Japanese, and we closed out the rest together. I have to admit, we sounded pretty good, given that we’d only sung it through twice before.

LIFE sera commercialisé le 8 septembre prochain au Japon. N’hésitez pas à soutenir Angela en commandant cet album :
