Renee Fleming - Dark Hope
One of the World's Most Celebrated Voices Puts An Indelible Signature
On Songs By Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, Death Cab For Cutie, The Mars
Volta, Muse, and Leonard Cohen
The album was recorded in
close collaboration with producer David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The
Strokes, The Bangles, Sublime, and countless others) in New York City,
and features a diverse and adventurous track listing of songs.
Fleming, the superstar soprano known as "the people's diva," says of
'Dark Hope': “I’ve always been inspired by artists who have shown
musical and intellectual curiosity and the courage to take risks.
Because everything about the voice interests me, I felt it would be
fascinating to learn a completely different style of singing.”
Fleming says that for the recording of this album, "Singing in a small,
acoustic booth, with a microphone that’s very close, in this very
intimate style, is the complete opposite of how I usually sing.”
