Billboard Premieres New Meiko Single

The first single from Meiko‘s soon-to-be-released new covers album Playing Favorites premiered today on Billboard.com. Her remake of “Crush”, the 1998 hit by Jennifer Paige, “…takes the bubbly, heart-fluttering pop tune and puts a dramatic edge on it, brimming with reverb that make the singer’s passionate vocals alluringly eerie.”

The 12-song album features live covers of songs from namestays including Duran Duran, Blind Melon, The Cranberries, and Sade (among others). The album is a binaural recording, and the performances were captured in an abandoned church in Brooklyn, NY.

Playing Favorites will be released on May 25. Meiko will be celebrating the release with a performance at New York City’s Opry City Stage on May 22, for which tickets are still available.
