IATTON… Tanya Donelly – Miranda (Pacifically)


Sadly not in Elizabethan English.

From the album notes…

Miranda (pacifically)
Saw The Tempest performed in a local park recently — a morally complicated story with loose ends. I had this great piece of music from Michael Hearst waiting for me, and this was one of those “the lyrics wrote themselves” situations, inspired by the stranded souls of that play. (It’s not sung in Elizabethan English, don’t worry.) Other things crept in too, because most songs are about more than one thing. Jimmy Ryan (the Blood Oranges, Mark Sandman) elevates it all with his perfect mandolin.
