Product Description

Over the course of four albums, Tracy Chapman has sold over thirteen million albums worldwide, won four Grammy Awards and garnered tremendous acclaim from fans around the globe. Now, coming off the four-times platinum New Beginning with its number one single "Give Me One Reason", she returns with Telling Stories, an album blossoming with the same potent lore that has become her esteemed trademark. Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)

With Telling Stories, her first album since 1995's New Beginnings, Tracy Chapman returns to the spare, unsentimental feel of her early work. In doing so, she recaptures some of the urgency and simple melodiousness that made her debut a soulful folk-rock classic. There's maturity here, exemplified by recurring spiritual metaphors. On "Unsung Psalm" she imagines her funeral, singing, "I'd have a halo and flowing white robes / If I live right." "Wedding Song" offers the plainspoken, devotional line, "I reach out for your hand / For you I'd don a veil." The musical arrangements, too, are pared-down, with ghostly banjo, silvery fiddle, and guitar woven into subtle drum loops. Though not as immediately captivating as her debut, Telling Stories is a focused return to form for Chapman. --Lucy O'Brien
