NEW SINGLE RELEASE
For my friends in Europe,

Butler Records has released the first single from my upcoming album (due to be released on September 7th).

The song, originally in Dutch, and written by the respected songwriter, Daniël Lohues, is originally titled, “Als de Liefde Maar Blijft Winnen”. I heard the song for the first time, as recorded by Stephanie Struijk from the Netherlands, an incredible artist, and a dear friend and co-writer. As luck would have it, she happened to be visiting LA, and I asked her if we could write a version in English for my new album.

It was a great afternoon- a rare chilly day in Malibu, the ocean waves in the background, and over several hot mint teas, with our guitars, we wrote the lyric, “As Long As’. I had loved her version in Dutch so much, that I contacted the string arranger (also from the Netherlands), Reinout Douma, and he arranged the strings for my version as well. I recorded the Matangi Quartet, with whom I’ll be on tour, and added my wonderful and gifted friend, Jaap Kwakman of 3JS, on acoustic guitar.

I’m thrilled to share it with you- a song that was inspired by my beloved Netherlands, home to my treasured friends.

While I have been recording since the early (very early) 70’s, and performed for years, I’ve never been more excited than now, about my upcoming concerts. I’ve just completed my 19th album, entitled, “Lori Lieberman featuring the Matangi Quartet, The Girl and the Cat” on Butler Records, which will be released worldwide on September 6th, 2019. It’s an album that organically went from one piece to another, compositions that were written straight from the heart and detail my life in its struggles and inspirations. I’m at the grand piano this time around for most of it, and composer Stefanie Fife and I arranged the string orchestrations for the quartet, who I recorded in Holland. I had been looking for the right project to feature the Matangi Quartet since the time I first performed with them at the Royal Theatre Carré some years ago. I was drawn to their artistry and sensitivity and thought it would be a great match. I am so pleased to announce that the same renown Matangi Quartet will be joining me from the Netherlands at New York’s Carnegie Hall on October 4th.
