SONG OF THE WEEK: TEXAS “The Conversation” [Numero 64]

Sessantaquattresimo ”numero” della mia nuova rubrica SONG OF THE WEEK, consigli personali sui nuovi pezzi che ritengo interessanti o,quanto meno,degni di nota rispetto ad altri nel mondo del mainstream musicale. Non tutto il commerciale è da buttare,e spero che con questa rubrica lo possa dimostrare.

*ABOUT*

ITALIANO

Per questa settimana ho scelto “The Conversion”, brano che segna il ritorno musicale dei Texas, a ben 8 anni di distanza dal precedente disco di studio “Red Book”, pubblicato nel 2005.

Texas_-_The_Conversation

“The Conversation” è il singolo apripista al nuovo, settimo, disco di studio della band inglese che s’intitolerà anch’esso “The Conversation” e segna il ritorno della band al loro sound originale, meno pop/dance/electro e decisamente più folk rock.

Senza aver perso mai, comunque, la bussola i Texas ci presentano un breve (2:50 circa) singolo ma potente e d’impatto, e Sharleen Spiteri, la front-woman della band, sfodera un look davvero “texano”, con classica camicia riferita al famoso stato americano.

Sharleen torna nei Texas dopo due album solisti pubblicati fra il 2008 e 2010, “Melody” e “The Movie Songbook”. Il primo album arrivò sino alla posizione numero 3 in UK vendendo oltre 100,000 mentre il secondo arrivò al numero 13.

I Texas hanno all’attivo 3 number one albums in madrepatria ( “White On Blonde” 1997- “The Hush” 1999 e “Greatest Hits” 2001) ed ora, dopo il lungo periodo di hiatus, sono segnati sotto l’etichetta indipendente PIAS recordings che, fra gli altri, ha ospitato artisti come i Morcheeba e i Placebo.

Il nuovo singolo e video dei Texas è disponibile, mentre il nuovo disco uscirà il prossimo 20 Maggio 2013.

ENGLISH

This week i’ve chosen “The Conversation“, song that sets the return of rock band Texas, 8 years after their last to date album “Red Book” (UK #16), published in 2005.

“The Conversation” it’s the lead single from the seventh studio album of this english band, who’s gonna be titled “The Conversation”  too and will be a comeback to the group’s earlier sounds, less pop/dance/electro and more folk rock, what their fans and critics are more used to catalogue as “Texas songs”.

 Without any particular flops or wrong directions taken, Texas are back with a short but strong and impactful single and Sharleen Spiteri, the band’s frontwoman, shows off a very “texas” look, with a blouse in that perfect mood.

Sharleen is back in her band after 2 solo albums released from 2008 to 2010, “Melody” and “The Movie Songbook”. The first one peaked at number 3 in UK selling more than 100,000 and the second one, less successful, peaked at 13.

Texas have 3 UK number 1 albums in their catalogue, ( “White On Blonde” 1997- “The Hush” 1999 e “Greatest Hits” 2001) and now, after the long hiatus, are back with independent label PIAS Recordings, the same for the latest Morcheeba and Placebo’s albums, between the Others.

The new single and video are out now, while the new album will be released May the 20th.

*TESTO*

Any time we have a conversation it’s never what you want to hear
It’s funny how much words can hurt you even after all these years
I wanna make an observation about how you tear your world apart
And every time I try to tell you, you blame it on your fickle heart

How they’re hurting you
Whether they’re deserting you
And so it’s unfair to you
It’s time to have a conversation

Give it up, I’m never gonna hold you up
You’ve always been afraid of love
It’s time to have a conversation

Waking up is never easy so why don’t you come over here?
Tell me ‘bout the dreams that haunt you, tell me ‘bout your secret fears
I wanna change your whole perception if only I could make you see
I would tell you your own creation is bringing you less misery

How they’re hurting you
Whether they’re deserting you
And so it’s unfair to you
It’s time to have a conversation

Give it up, I’m never gonna hold you up
You’ve always been afraid of love
It’s time to have a conversation

The words you hear in your head
Were never said, were never said
The heart you break you mistake
For me instead, for me instead

How they’re hurting you
Whether they’re deserting you
And so it’s unfair to you
It’s time to have a conversation

Give it up, I’m never gonna hold you up
You’ve always been afraid of love
It’s time to have a conversation

How they’re hurting you
Whether they’re deserting you
And so it’s unfair to you
It’s time to have a conversation

Give it up, I’m never gonna hold you up
You’ve always been afraid of love
It’s time to have a conversation
