"Anthem stands as Peyroux's greatest work to date"

"...An exhilarating trip - bold, intense, deeply insightful"

NY Times, NPR Preview, and Rave Reviews Run for Madeleine Peyroux's "Triumphant" ‘Anthem', as U.S. and UK Coverage Begins to Run

U.S. Tour Gets Underway

Rave coverage has begun to run for Madeleine Peyroux's ‘Anthem', with JazzTimes Magazine describing it as "an exhilarating trip - bold, intense, deeply insightful," a four-page interview feature in the September issue of DownBeat Magazine, and more, including expansive coverage in the UK, with The Sunday Times praising the album as "a triumphant mix of the personal and the political." Other coverage includes a NY Times Playlist Pick, an inclusion in NPR's podcast playlist, and more. Glide Magazine said, "Anthem stands as Peyroux's greatest work to date," and Jazziz noted, "with it she continues to challenge the confines of jazz, venturing into the fertile fields of contemporary music with unfading curiosity."

‘Anthem' was Produced and co-written by four-time Grammy Winner Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock). From its remarkable writing to its savvy mix of subtly topical commentary and outright irreverence, Peyroux's ‘Anthem' marks a defining moment in the career of a long-respected artist - it's an album that captures the maturity, humor, intelligence and depth of a woman who has something meaningful to say, even as she entertains.

Peyroux's ‘Anthem' Tour will celebrate the release across the U.S. and Europe - see all upcoming September through December dates, here:

‘Anthem' Quotes:

"Anthem stands as Peyroux's greatest work to date"
                           Glide Magazine August 2018 9 out of 10 stars

"A triumphant mix of the personal and the political."
                                    The Sunday Times (UK) 26 August 2018

"ANTHEM is an exhilarating trip - bold, intense, deeply insightful"
Jazz Times September 2018

"These are, by and large, everyman anthems, survivalist jazz for tough times. Drugs, booze, and a miscellany of hardships and crutches loom large in such selections as ‘Party Tyme', ‘Down on Me', ‘On a Sunday Afternoon' and the cautiously hopeful ‘The Ghosts of Tomorrow'."
                                    Jazz Times September 2018

"There's more than an echo of Steely Dan in the combination of smooth jazz and raw lyricism. In fact, Brand New Deal's elegant swipe at American capitalism could easily have come straight off the Dan's Gaucho LP but it's Peyroux's insouciant voice that haunts the listener."

                                             Sunday Express (UK) 28 August 2018

The most ambitious project by Madeleine Peyroux to date
                                    Jazzethik Germany 28 August 2018

"Sensual vocals hit the spot"
                           The Arts Desk UK  27 August 2018

"It's Peyroux's insouciant voice that haunts the listener"
                           Sunday Express UK 26 August 2018

"Inspired by one of the greats, Peyroux is Cohen her own way"
                  Metro UK 30 August 2018

"Peyroux has developed her vocal style and into the third decade of her career, she is her own artist; to borrow a Cohen line, this is Peryoux's own ‘manual for living with defeat'."
                           Metro UK 30 August 2018

"On Sunday night she invited us into her world, studding the lyrics with playful asides and half-whispered confessions to lend each song an air of intimacy. Her rapport with her band felt as natural as her wondrously elastic phrasing, and her music exuded a languid warmth that was balm for the ears."
                           Performance at Hamer Hall Melbourne International Jazz Festival - The Sydney Morning Herald by Jessica Nicholas June 2018
