Annie Lennox – Bare

I just performed a search on my own site for “Annie Lennox”, I felt surely I have blogged about this album before… but nope, can’t find it, which is weird, I was still a prolific blogger 14 years ago, when this album as first released… 14 years ago… fark, I’m feeling old right now.

Bare is an album that didn’t get a lot of play, in fact Annie didn’t even release any official singles from the album. A few promo singles sent for, well, promotion and I think a single remix single collection that wasn’t widely available. Not sure why the album didn’t get much love. 🤔 

I have certainly always loved it and thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a beautiful, at times haunting, melodic soundtrack to their day.

The best I can find to share with you is a live recording of a heavily cutback version of Wonderful on Annie’s YouTube channel. Her voice, it’s just so precious.

Annie has also recently released a “Retrospective” video. A video that talks about her albums “Diva” and “Medusa”, I have to assume this video was actually made before “Bare” else I’m left to wonder why “Bare” gets so little love, even from its maker. There is a screen capture (shown below) of the exact same outfit as the “Wonderful” clip above, so who knows.
