Keep Your Courage 2LP + MP3 Bundle
Keep Your Courage is Natalie Merchant’s tenth solo studio album and the first of new material since her 2014 self-titled record. An eclectic album, produced by Merchant, it features lush orchestrations throughout, two duets sung with vocalist Abena Koomson-Davis of Resistance Revival Chorus, contributions from the Celtic folk group Lúnasa and Syrian virtuoso clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, and horn arrangements by jazz trombonist Steve Davis. There are nine original songs by Merchant and an interpretation of “Hunting the Wren” by Ian Lynch of the Irish band Lankum. This double LP includes four bonus tracks from earlier albums, previously unreleased on vinyl.
