In celebration of Craft Recordings’ deluxe reissue of her best-selling 2004 album, Careless Love this August, acclaimed jazz singer Madeleine Peyroux is scheduled to return to the road on an extensive Careless Love Forever world tour, starting September 2021 and taking in eight UK dates in November (details below). The tour represents the first time that Peyroux will play the much-loved album front-to-back.
Craft Recordings’ deluxe reissue of Madeleine Peyroux’s Careless Love includes the acclaimed, original album, plus a previously-unreleased live set, captured in its entirety in 2005 at Spain’s Festival de Jazz de Vitoria-Gasteiz. Careless Love will be available digitally, as a 2-CD set, and on 180-gram vinyl as a 3-LP set, housed in a triple gatefold jacket. Both physical editions include recently-unearthed photos, captured during Careless Love’s original release, plus new liner notes from the GRAMMY® Award-winning journalist Ashley Kahn, who recently spoke to Peyroux about the making of the album and her triumphant performance in Spain.
A limited pressing on translucent vinyl with black and gold marble will be available exclusively via the official Madeleine Peyroux or Craft Recordings webstores (1,000 available worldwide). Fans can get a first listen now with the instant grat. single, “Don’t Wait Too Long (live)” (stream/download here).
Careless Love was a commercial and critical success. In the US, the album sold more than 500,000 copies in its first year—hitting No.2 on Billboard’s Jazz chart and, eventually, earning a platinum certification both in the USA. Rivalling the sales of a pop record, the album was also a bestseller abroad, landing in the Top Ten in the UK, and earning Gold and Platinum certifications in Europe, South America, and China.
All About Jazz hailed Careless Love as “a moody, haunting masterpiece” and “a whale of a record.?Peyroux’s?voice is amazing—grainy, intimate, and unaffected.” No Depression noted that “a more self-defined Peyroux sound emerges—smooth, circling around midrange notes, energized, and built on her own smart reading of the lyric, not anyone else’s patterns.” The Guardian praised its “classily produced and coolly graceful set,” as well as its “intelligent choice of terrific songs.”
16 years later, Peyroux continues to record, perform, and challenge the confines of jazz through such albums as Half the Perfect World (2006), Standing on the Rooftop (2011), and The Blue Room (2013). In 2014, she released a career retrospective, Keep Me in Your Heart for a While: Best of Madeleine Peyroux, while in 2016, she released her eighth studio album and latest collaboration with Larry Klein, Anthem.
