Cassandra Wilson Releases “Closer to You: The Pop Side”

Cassandra Wilson has an album being released April 7, 2009. It’s titled “Closer to You: The Pop Side“. It’s a compilation of her pop song covers over the years. It’s being released by Blue Note, who she has been with since 1993. This collection of covers surely shows the ability for her and her voice to change and adapt. Some of the songs include, “Weight” (Country), “Time After Time” (by Cyndi Lauper), and “Tupelo Honey” (by Van Morrison). There aren’t any samples available right now, but it will be in about a week.
