Annie Lennox NostalgiaProduced by Lennox and frequent collaborator Mike Stevens, the 12-track ‘Nostalgia’ is a collection of the legendary singer-songwriter’s impassioned takes on iconic American compositions that still continue to resonate in our complex contemporary world – songs like ‘Memphis In June’, ‘Strange Fruit’, ‘I Can Dream, Can’t I?’ and ‘God Bless The Child’.
