We Didn't Think We Could Love Her More, But We Do

We here at Aria Serious adore Renee Fleming so much we really didn't think our adoration could get any stronger. But then word came to us that come June 8, 2010 the lovely Renee is releasing an album called "Dark Hope" which feature covers of Arcade Fire, Death Cab For Cutie, Muse, Mars Volta, Tears for Fears and others... it's like one part of my music collection got busy with another part of my music collection and had musical babies.

On recording the album Fleming said that she tried to find a "stylistically authentic" way of performing the songs and that "singing in the lowest part of my voice was key to making this work."

The singer described making the album as "a wonderful learning curve, one reminiscent of my early days studying Mozart as a Juilliard student."

You can bet we'll be listening to this one come June 8, and as more information becomes available we'll share it with you here.

In the meantime, you can read the article on the Culture Monster blog here.

Now we're off to go beg Ian for a recital of this. Wish me luck.
