Pink Martini to release new album

2013-08-31 by Voivod STAFF | 3 Comments
The critically acclaimed, Portland (OR) based, pop jazz act of Pink Martini will release its fifth album Get Happy on September 24 through the band's own label, Heinz Records.

In introducing the new album to their fans around the world, Pink Martini posted the following press release:

In January 2012, Thomas Lauderdale and our trusty audio engineer Dave Friedlander flew to Los Angeles to visit Thomas’s new friend, Phyllis Diller. While there, Thomas bought a dozen of Phyllis’s bright colorful paintings… and they recorded Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile”, which turned out to be Phyllis Diller’s final recording, and became the soundtrack for the many tributes to her when she passed away six months later.

Thus began the 18-month odyssey to record Get Happy, the long-awaited studio follow-up to 2009′s Splendor in the Grass, an odyssey which featured a calvacade of vocal royalty visiting our Portland studios, including exotic cabaret sensation Meow Meow, sunny French eccentric Philippe Katerine, the handsome and brilliant radio superstar Ari Shapiro, warm-hearted wunder-siblings The von Trapps, and a riveting appearance by the exquisite Rufus Wainwright!

Anchored by our beloved and elegant vocalist China Forbes, alongside our dazzling co-lead-singer Storm Large, finally making her recording debut with us, the album features sixteen songs selected and arranged by Thomas, including songs in German, French, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Farsi, Turkish and Romanian.

1. Smile (Featuring Phyllis Diller)
2. Ich Dich Liebe
3. Quizas Quizas Quizas
4. Zundoko
5. Je Ne T'aime Plus (Featuring Philippe Katerine)
6. Yo Te Quiero Siempre (Featuring Ari Shapiro)
7. I'm Waiting For You (Featuring Meow Meow)
8. Omide Zendegani
9. Uskudar
10. Pana Cand
11. She Was Too Good To Me
12. Sway
13. Kitty Come Home (Featuring Rufus Wainwright with The von Trapps)

Awesome band. They are visiting Athens, Greece in September, too bad they won't come to Thessaloniki as well.

These guys are pretty big in Romania. That's why they recorded a song in Romanian, I guess.
