Beth Orton - Words and Music - 2012

Take a First Listen to Beth Orton's new album 'Sugaring Season.' Then hear Beth perform live on Words & Music, tonight at 9pm.



Beth Orton is one of those rare artists who's had a genre coined entirely for her.  Labeled "Folktronica" back in the mid-90's, Beth has moved away from dark beats and into a literary folk that shimmers around her low-key alto. Her gorgeous new album, Sugaring Season, was produced by Tucker Martine, and after a 6-year wait, it's due out next Tuesday. You can hear solo, acoustic versions of a few of the songs in our Studio A session with Beth below.
