Jens Lekman Contributes To Tracey Thorn’s New Album

jens.2007.1

Jens Lekman guests on Tracey Thorn’s new solo record Love And It’s Opposite (out May 17)┬ácovering Lee Hazelwood’s “Come on Home to Me.” You can download the album’s first single “Oh, The Divorces” now by going here. On “Oh, The Divorces” Tracey sings “Oh Jens, oh Jens/ Your songs seem to look through a different lens/ You’re still so young/ Love ends just as easy it’s begun.” The album also features guest appearances by members of Hot Chip and Cortney Tidwell. This is Tracey’s third solo record since her days in Everything But The Girl. Coincidentally, Everything But The Girl’s first single way back in 1982 was a cover of Cole Porter’s song “Night And Day.” Cole Porter was born in Peru, Indiana, and Secretly Canadian is of course based in Bloomington, Indiana. So while Jens may be from Sweden, and Tracey from England, it all comes back to Indiana. Six degrees of Indiana, people. You can find more info on Tracey’s new album via Pitchfork.
