Anthem is the title of the new album by Madeleine Peyroux.  This album’s newly written songs emanate from producer Larry Klein suggesting that they try organizing writing sessions with a group of great musicians/writers that include Patrick Warren, Brian Macleod, and David Baerwald.  Along with the newly written songs figure two previously written songs featuring Madeleine in her distinctive style: the classic title track by Leonard Cohen, and the Harold Arlen/ E.Y. “Yip” Harburg song “Last Night When We Were Young.”

This album achieves the difficult task of balancing humor, pathos, and irony, while weaving a topical thread throughout, addressing the current state of the world. Absent are any traces of preachiness or angry diatribes, and in their place are songs written from a diverse group of perspectives and vantage points: a man and a woman in a mental ward / rehab discussing their predicament, a Generation X pot-smoking gamer, a recently single woman whose lover has vanished, and a down-on-her-luck tenant in an apartment building, whose door has just been kicked in by the landlord.  

From this varied cast of Raymond Carver-esque characters and more, a vivid picture is painted of the challenges that our times present for someone trying to hold on to their hope, heart, and optimism in the world that we now confront.
