Pegi Young & The Survivors: Interview + Tour Dates (updated)
As we reported last month, Pegi Young & The Survivors have a new album coming out and a Fall tour scheduled.
Pegi Young & The Survivors' new album is titled "Lonely In A Crowded Room" and set for a October 27, 2014 release on New West Records. "Lonely In A Crowded Room" is Pegi's 4th album since her first release in 2007.
In a recent interview Pegi Young makes up for lost time with solo album, tour - SFGate by Aidin Vaziri:
Q: You don’t make any albums for 30 years, and now you’re on your fourth. Are you making up for lost time?Full interview continues at Pegi Young makes up for lost time with solo album, tour - SFGate.
Pegi: Well, you know, timing is everything. This record was really done months ago, mostly last year. I’ve already got another set of songs just waiting to be recorded.
Q: How would you describe your brief evolution from your self-titled debut in 2007 to “Lonely in a Crowded Room”?
A: Oh, gosh. The band makeup has changed, and it took a turn to a more R&B sound. I’m quite comfortable there. I’m a California native, but I must have some Southern roots because I’ve always loved the blues, girl groups and Muscle Shoals sound. I’m also a big lyrics person.
Q: So you probably know people are going to be looking for all kinds of clues about your personal life with the songs on this record. Were you anticipating that?
A: No, not at all. Not in the slightest. This record was done well before any of the recent drama in my personal life.
Q: “Lonely in a Crowded Room” seems like such a loaded title.
A: I think it’s self-explanatory. The record was done in January. There’s very little relevance to what’s going on in my life now.
Q: Is this the first time your name is actually appearing on the bill for the Bridge School Benefit?
A: Yes, it only took 28 years. I’m so pleased.
