Martha Wainwright to play her new album at Vicar St.

Martha Wainwright returns with her eagerly anticipated second studio album ‘I know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too’ A glorious follow up to her critically acclaimed self-titled 2005 debut. The album is Released on May 16th and to coincide with this Martha will be performing live at Vicar St. on May 26th.

Featuring twelve original tracks and a touching cover of the Pink Floyd classic ‘See Emily Play’, this album is a huge a step forward both sonically and lyrically from her debut. Produced by a range of producers including Brad Albetta, Martin Terefe, and Tore Johansson, the album walks the line perfectly between subtle beauty and raw emotion.

“The title sums up my dark humour. Plus it’s an homage to a few good men and women that I’ve loved at one time or another. After all, these people never go away. You end up loving them for life.” she says.
From the intricacy and simplicity of ‘Comin’ Tonight’, to the plaintive power of ‘Hearts Club Band’ the album is full of standout tracks. Other highlights include the album opener ‘Bleeding All Over You’, and the final track ‘ I Wish I Were’ which showcases Martha’s majestic and evocative voice perfectly.

‘I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too’ is packed with contributors including Pete Townshend (‘You Cheated Me’), The Band’s Garth Hudson (‘I Wish I Were’), and Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen (‘So Many Friends’). It also features members of Martha’s extraordinarily talented family, including brother Rufus (In The Middle Of The Night’), mother Kate McGarrigle aunt Anna McGarrigle, and first cousin Lily Lanken (‘See Emily Play’).
