•★•       Všichni máme nějaké tajemství. A některé i skrýváme. Byl pes? Čí pes? Leonarda Cohena? Madeleine si dokáže vybírat vybrané muzikanty ke spolupráci. V minulosti to byly třeba Me’Shell Ndegéocello, Jenny Scheinman, nebo Marc Ribot. Teď z celé plejády zdůrazním jména Jivan Gasparyan, Dean Parks, Luciana Souza a Larry Klein. Za mix zasedl Tchad Blake. Přestože je Peyroux schopna řešit standardy a tradiční písně se sofistikovaným lyricismem, je v jejím jádru bohémský vypravěč, který se věnuje Ricki Lee Jones a výše zmíněnému Cohenovi.
•★•       Anthem weaves the colourful stories of people confronting life’s challenges in a multitude of ways. With pathos and a hint of irony it laments over financial tribulations in Down On Me, speaks of disappointment and unfulfilled dreams in the bluesy Ghosts of Tomorrow and delivers a scathingly poignant social commentary in The Brand New Deal. Coming ten years after Bare Bones, the singer~songwriter’s previous album of original songs, Anthem finds Peyroux wiser with finer articulation powers. Inspired by her idol Leonard Cohen’s ability to „suffer for the work, but still present the listener with just a friendly thought“, Peyroux sends a spiritual but clear message of hope, optimism and resilience in the face of a turbulent reality.
•★•       There are two covers in this album. Paul Eluard’s WW2 poem Liberté, and the title track, Leonard Cohen’s monumental Anthem, which also marks Peyroux’s third interpretation of the iconic poet’s work.
•★•       Soon becoming Peyroux’s „personal anthem“, Cohen’s soulful masterpiece „tied together all the stories on the record“, with uncanny relevance and topical worldly observation.
•★•       It was Cohen’s astonishing ability to tap into the human psyche and „make you think about things without forcing you into it“, that was the underlying thread throughout the project, leading to a more fluid style of writing, „that is about saying something rather than saying everything.“
•★•       Anthem’s lighter tunes include On My Own and On A Sunday Afternoon and 70’s sounding Party Tyme which „has some darkness to it.“
Editorial Reviews
✹    Eight albums and 22 years since her debut Dreamland, Madeleine Peyroux continues to challenge the confines of jazz, venturing into the fertile fields of contemporary music with unfading curiosity. Peyrouxs new album, Anthem, finds the singer~songwriter collaborating with writers/musicians Patrick Warren (Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Brian MacLeod (Sara Bareilles, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Ziggy Marley) and David Baerwald (Joni Mitchell, David and David, Sheryl Crow), who are also the basic rhythm section players on the album. Together, they cast a sober, poetic, and at times philosophical eye on the current state of the world. Produced and co~written by Larry Klein, the album came to life during the pivotal 2016 US elections, with the writers absorbing a constant stream of news over many months. The consciously not too preachy songs, fuse Peyrouxs, at times political outlook, with glimpses into her personal world. Honed and patiently refined with fellow writers they mix the public with the personal, striking that perfect equilibrium of dark humor and compassion.
✹    „The album is a finely polished production, each performance in crisp servitude to the song. Occasional sonic curveballs, such as sound effects, add a playfulness that keeps listeners on their toes“. — Downbeat
✹    „With it she continues to challenge the confines of jazz, venturing into the fertile fields of contemporary music with unfading curiosity.“ — Jazziz
✹    „I am deeply moved by the encouraging swath of reviews of our new album, Anthem! In the midst of such positivity, I want to take this opportunity to stress the incredible work done and give credit to David Baerwald, who is the main lyricist behind all of this record. If these original songs stand in equal ranks with the likes of Leonard Cohen and Paul Eluard, it is indeed thanks to him. I am so grateful to sing David’s lyrics and I look forward to singing them for years to come!“ — Madeleine Peyroux
