Madeleine Peyroux, the smokey-voiced singer, guitarist and songwriter, nails her follow-up to her multi-platinum selling 2004 breakthrough Careless Love. Half the Perfect World showcases Peyroux’s uncanny gift for exploring the emotional core of songs by other singers and songwriters she’s admired, and also displays her talents as a writer on four songs she co-wrote.
Many of the album’s songs explore romantic relationships from a distinctly female perspective. As Peyroux says “These love songs come from an extremely personal place, and therefore allowed me a most intimate reading.”
Produced by Larry Klein, the 12-track album finds Peyroux lending her sublime vocals to songs by artists she has cherished throughout her lifetime such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Fred Neil and Joni Mitchell. Peyroux wrote the upbeat “I’m All Right” with Klein and Steely Dan’s Walter Becker, and three other songs with Klein and Jesse Harris (who co-wrote “Don’t Wait Too Long” on Careless Love).
