One might assume that the difference between Tracy Chapman's third album, which spent less than three months in the charts (and took nine years to reach gold status) after her first two albums had sold in the millions, and her fourth, which restored her to substantial commercial success, was the album's hit single, "Give Me One Reason." In fact, after a disappointing start, New Beginning turned around and started selling a few months after its release and before the single took off. It went gold the week that "Give Me One Reason" hit the charts. Of course, having a hit single helps, too, but since "Give Me One Reason" is a nearly generic blues song that isn't particularly characteristic of Chapman or of the album, it may have brought in an audience that didn't get what it expected. Though she has added a backup band, Chapman continues to take a simple musical approach that focuses attention on her voice and to sing lyrics that alternate between intimate emotional portraits and broad political generalizations that seem more felt than deeply thought out. Three songs here, "Heaven's Here on Earth," "The Rape of the World," and the title cut, are about the state of the whole world, which is viewed in either excessively sunny or gloomy terms. As such, Chapman's relationship songs, though they too can be a little vague, register more powerfully because they are so personal. As the title suggests, Chapman is adopting a more open and hopeful posture in both her feelings and her politics on New Beginning, and while the surprise success of "Give Me One Reason" is heartening from a career perspective, that's the real news here. ~ William Ruhlmann

Leonard Cohen en 10 chansons

Difficile de sélectionner les 10 meilleures chansons de Leonard Cohen. En cinquante ans de carrière, le plus célèbre des songwriters canadiens, décédé en 2016, a enregistré beaucoup plus que 10 titres mémorables. Pour donner un aperçu de l’évolution artistique du chanteur, Qobuz a sélectionné une chanson par album, de “Suzanne” en 1967 à “You Want It Darker” en 2016.

Daniel Johnston, icône troublée et troublante

Personne ne sonne comme Daniel Johnston. Artiste dépressif et méconnu devenu culte grâce à la reconnaissance de ses pairs, l’Américain, mort le 11 septembre 2019 à l’âge de 58 ans, est le symbole d’une musique naïve, lo-fi mais débordant d’émotions. Il n’est pas trop tard pour (re)découvrir cet authentique génie underground qui ne rate jamais le cœur de l’auditeur.

Outlaw country : révolte à Nashville

Au début des années 70, un gang de renégats envoie valdinguer la country de Nashville, ses codes, son diktat, ses productions lisses et ses clichés. Emmenée par Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson et quelques autres sauvages aux cheveux longs, cette révolte outlaw insuffle un esprit rock’n’roll dans un genre devenu conservateur.
