Get To Know Zara McFarlane’s ‘If You Knew Her’ Before It Hits Stores

Zara McFarlane If You Knew Her Cover

We’ve been anticipating Zara McFarlane‘s sophomore album ever since we first heard the enchanting tones of the album’s first single “Angie La La” with Leron Thomas. Now, with less than a week before the set’s release, Brownswood Recordings is previewing the entire album. Along with “Angie La La,” the set also includes “Open Heart” as well as “You’ll Get Me in Trouble,” which she recently wowed a crowed with during a live performance. Another treat here is her cover of Nina Simone‘s “Plain Gold Ring,” one of the late jazz chanteuse’s standards that has been covered by a range of artists, including New Zealander Kimbra. Zara’s take on the track is much sparser than Kimbra’s remake, with minimal accompaniment that highlights the emotive power of Zara’s one-of-a-kind voice. Zara’s If You Knew Her will hit stores on January 20th, with pre-orders for the set available now on iTunes. Take a listen to the album right here. [H/T: OKP]
