Chesky Records is proud to announce that iconic vocalist, Macy Gray, will be releasing a new album on Chesky Records this fall. The new album, currently untitled, will show a new side to the singer, pairing her with an impressive jazz ensemble that includes Russell Malone, Ari Hoenig, Daryl Johns, and Wallace Roney. She'll revisit some of her classic songs in addition to providing some new material and her interpretations of others' classic songs.
Gray released her debut album, On How Life Is, in 1999 to great success. In 2001 she won a Grammy for the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her second single, “I Try,” which was also nominated for Song of the Year. With a handful of releases between then and now, this album will demonstrate Gray's versatility as she trades Pop production for authentic performance on this stripped and bare expression of raw emotion. The album promises to not only be engaging and catchy, but timeless.
