Sony to singer: Whoa, Nellie!

The above article is from The Boston Herald. I was very ecstatic for Nellie McKay’s (pronounced Mick-i) sophomore release, Pretty Little Head. Her debut album, Get Away From Me, was amazing. On its release I said that Nellie McKay “is an amazing virtuoso who blends ’40s piano with a edgy, slightly profane sense of female empowerment and it makes for a heady buzz of musical heaven.”

The new album features duets from McKay and great singers like k.d. lang and Cyndi Lauper, was due for release on the 3rd of this month, and had already been sent to and reviewed by music magazines like SPIN and Blender. They raved about the album. Guess what? Sony wanted a truncated album with less songs. Nellie said no. Now this amazing angel of the lyrical word is labeless. This is so lame. I really hope that this album gets released ASAP. I hate this very much.
