Suzanne Vega / An Evening of New York Songs and Stories

Only 200 red vinyl • Signed • Guitar and production by Gerry Leonard

Suzanne Vega will release a new album, An Evening of New York Songs and Stories in May.

On this record, Vega revisits familiar songs in her repertoire, as well as some hidden gems. It’s actually a live recording, made at New York’s Café Carlisle (on 14 March last year) on which she is backed by longtime guitarist, Gerry Leonard (who is amazing with Vega on stage), bassist Jeff Allen and keyboardist Jamie Edwards.

Red vinyl pressing limited to just 200 units and is now sold out.

The album was produced by Gerry Leonard, mixed by Kevin Killen and mastered by Grammy Award winner, Bob Ludwig.

Sadly, the vinyl signed editions are now sold out. Vinyl is a gatefold package and the CD version comes in a fold-out six-panel digi-sleeve.

An Evening of New York Songs and Stories is being released by Cooking Vinyl on 11 September 2020 (was 1 May).
