I just got Suzanne Vega’s new album Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles (iTunes… it’s very good — my early favourite track: ‘I Never Wear White’) … it led me to visit her website where this video NPR Tiny Desk Concert from a few days ago features as news.

I enjoyed it, and seeing/hearing her links … and her live, pared-back version of ‘I Never Wear White’ – 9’40” on video above. (Album version even better IMO.)

This woman is a poet, and, along with contemporary Edie Brickell, reminds me of a time in my life. It’s very cool to see her new work is as good as ever.
