One of music’s most unique performers will be reimagining the work of another as Macy Gray gets ready to release her version of Stevie Wonder‘s classic album Talking Book.
The original album was released in 1972 and will be celebrating it’s 40th anniversary in October. Gray’s version of Talking Book was overseen by Hal Willner who produced last year’s nightmare inducing Lou Reed and Metallica collaboration Lulu. We won’t hold that against the album, not until we at least hear it.
Gray showcases her distinctively scratchy voice on iconic tracks like Sunshine Of My Life and Superstition. Wonder’s Talking Book still stands as landmark artistic achievement, having spawned seven Top 10 singles and earning three Grammys for Best Male Pop Vocal, R&B Performance and R&B Song.
Talking Book will be getting an Australian release on October 26 and will come hot on the heels of her performances in Australia as part of her worldwide tour.
