Once it was elusive, now it’s inescapable. Madeleine Peyroux’s sly Holiday-lifted croon can be heard around the globe, from Newport to Rotterdam to any number of chic coffeehouse chains. The Parisian-spirited singer’s presence will only grow with her new yet-to-be-titled album, slated for release Sept. 12 on Rounder Records.
The album was recorded this past April in Los Angeles under the guidance of Larry Klein, who produced last year’s runaway hit Careless Love. While no specifics in the way of repertoire are available just yet, Klein recently informed the Wall Street Journal that Peyroux’s third disc boasts an “expanded palette.” In an e-mail, Peyroux’s publicity firm revealed that the disc would include “a diverse selection of interpretations and some original material (as on Careless Love).”
