Release Day – Sarah Brown Sings Mahalia Jackson

This is a day I have been anticipating for quite some time. Right from the moment Sarah announced that she was recording her debut solo album to us Simple Minds fans, in fact.

That day has arrived. Sarah Brown Sings Mahalia Jackson is now available on the streaming/digital download service of your choice (link HERE). Also available in physical format on CD and LP (pre-order for September release) via Rough Trade (click the link added for details).

I am yet to listen to any of it, other than the singles that have been released from it so far. Goddamn being a uni student! I am working on an assignment and am just allowing myself the time to post this this morning.

My assignment is on the blues and I have to incorporate ‘close listening’ in working on my essay so I’m trying not to cloud my listening at the moment by hearing much of anything else. The assignment is due on Tuesday, so until then, it might be a bit tricky for me to do a review…but I hope to do so as soon as I can.

I’m also hoping that there might be other news to come regarding the release of Sarah’s album…but we’ll see. Fingers crossed.

In the meantime…Happy Release Day, Miss Sarah! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
