New Jewish Love Songs

Hannah Spiro

Jewish text and folk-pop melody -- both fresh and philosophical!

Jewish is complicated, and so is love, so why not Jewish love songs? Between Torah, the Prophets, the Mishnah, and the siddur, I've had a wonderfully sticky time writing these new Jewish love songs -- new, because I made them up, and Jewish, because they're all inspired by something much older. Multiple looks at the idea of brit -- covenant -- interspersed with retellings of beloved stories and new versions of familiar prayers, "New Jewish Love Songs" is peaceful, anxious, elated, furious, committed, confused, and always in love.

CRUCIAL: The liner notes (lyrics, song descriptions, gratitude, etc) for the album can be found at http://www.hannahspiro.com/new_jewish_love_songs/
