Emmy the Great played an in-store at Rough Trade East to promote her new album, Virtue.
A few highlights:
- Cassandra – ironically dedicated to “Jennifer Anniston, that everywoman”
- First Love and 24 (well, you have to give the crowd a few old favourites)
- The final song – I don’t know the name and only remember a snippet of the lyrics, but it was rather lovely.
The Guardian is live streaming the album through Soundcloud, along with a track-by-track commentary. You can also listen to Virtue on Spotify, if you so wish.
