Entitled "Chanson: Amanda McBroom Sings Jacques Brel," the single CD is now in stores on the LML Music/Gecko Records label.
In a statement McBroom said, "I realize now that the reason I became a songwriter was because of Brel. I was enamored of his music from the first note — I had never heard any music like this in my life; it was intelligent, so sexy, so powerful, so political, so romantic, so French!"
"Chanson" was produced by Stephan Oberhoff and Michele Brourman, who also arranged the tunes.
The complete track listing follows:
Girl in an Armchair
Early Morning Hangers On
Songs for Old Lovers
Ne Me Quitte Pas
No, Love, You're Not Alone
You Don't Forget The Past
