Sarabeth Tucek - Get Well Soon (Team Ghost Remix)

It's incredible to think that Sarabeth Tucek only picked up a guitar when she was in her mid-20s... An acclaimed singer-songwriter, Tucek already has one album under her belt (her eponymous 2007 debut), a prestigious support slot for Bob Dylan and a songbook to make Neil Young blush.

FĂȘted for her soul-searching brand of alt country, Tucek is now back for more with a clutch of live dates, a new single and her eagerly anticipated second album - due in April on Sonic Cathedral.

The lead single and title-track of the album, 'Get Well Soon' is a typically absorbing slice of raw Americana - comparable with the likes of Mazzy Star and Cat Power. A fragile ballad played through a fog of vulnerability; it's as beautiful a song as you'll hear all year.

Included on the single is a quite astonishing remix of 'Get Well Soon'. A truly heart-stopping moment courtesy of Tucek's Sonic Cathedral stablemates, Team Ghost. As one might expect from the new project of Nicolas Fromageau (formerly of M83) it's a remarkable reinvention full of warped synths and squalling guitar. It's intense stuff and a blissful statement of intent from two hugely promising artists.
