Michael Jackson – Xscape

Michael Jackson’s Xscape release date is May 13th of 2014 though you can already listen to it on Spotify or Youtube. It are old recordings, well of course, the man is dead. The recordings are from 1983 – 2001, and are produced by producers like Timbaland and Stargate.

The album has 8 tracks and the deluxe version also includes the 8 original recordings plus a remix with Justin Timberlake of ‘Lover never felt so good‘.
Xscape really has a diversity of songs on it, for instance the first tracks is the single called ‘Lover never felt so good’ (the one without Timberlake) which is more funky, the 3rd track ‘Loving You’ is real warm and smooth, and ‘Do You Know Where Your Children Are’ is really more a They don’t care about us/Earth song-song.

Jacques Brel – La ville s’endormait

Jacques Brel, with all the air he has left in his one lung, he records his last record. A record with this chanson on it, ´La ville s´endormait´, the city was falling asleep. Cancer had already took down one of his lungs, while the audio technicus in the studio tries and take away all the sighs and gasping of Brel. And after the recording, Jacques joked and asked, looking under the piano:  if anyone had seen a lung. A wonderful song, though, a song about death.

“Et la fatigue plante (And the tiredness sticks,)
Son couteau dans mes reins (it’s knife into my lower back.)”
