Tracey Thorn – “Why Does The Wind?” (Stereogum Premiere)

Tracey Thorn was with Everything But The Girl for 18 years before she took a break — to have children, to get married (both with EBTG partner Ben Watt), and, it looks like, to tend to her greenhouse. She released her second solo record in 2007 — 25 years after her first. Her third solo album, Love and Its Opposite, arrives a little more quickly (the 27-year-old engagement to Watt means she likes to take her time with things). It’s produced by Berlin’s Ewan Pearson. “Why Does The Wind?” is more dance-oriented than many of the other tracks on Love and Its Opposite, with strings and a tart bassline under Thorn’s wistful vocals.
