Sarah Slean, the Canadian born cabaret infused songstress comes blasting back with her new album “The Baroness” which is released in March. If you pre order it through her website you’ll receive a song that didn’t make the album called “Parasol”.
“Parasol” is a cabaret-kitsch piano led jaunt that reminds me more of the Night Bugs album than the more recent Day One. Gone are the electrics and in are strong foreground strings, rolling drums for the chorus and accordions. The lyrics of the chorus are great to sing to “Oh Virginia.. we don’t know you had it in ya…” In short it’s everything you want in a Sarah Slean song and sets us up perfectly for the new album.
