MUST LISTEN: Perfectly... Still by Curt Smith

/ 9.8.10 /

Curt Smith, co-­‐founderof seminal music group Tear for Fears, releases “Perfectly… Still (featuring Universal Hall Pass),” the second single in a planned album-­‐length project of collaborations with, artists he meets via social media, on August 12, 2010. Smith is releasing “Perfectly…Still” via his KOOK Media label as a standalone single, which will be available in digital format from his website, AmazonMP3, iTunes, and other online retailers. It will also be available as a signed, limited edition CD single, sold only at concerts and via Smith’s website.

Smith met guest artist Universal Hall Pass (MelissaR.Kaplan) when one of his fans responded to a request for collaborator suggestions by tweeting: “Can I please be a complete slobbering fan girl and recommend the ethereal Melissa Kaplan?” Smith was captivated by Kaplan’s music and reached out to her via MySpace. Kaplan didn’t believe it was really him at first, but was ultimately convinced of both his identity and interest, and enthusiastically agreed to participate. As with his previous collaboration “All Is Love” with cellist Zoë Keating, Smith sent Kaplan the in-progress tracks, to which she added both vocals and instrumentation. To this day, the two haven’t yet met in person.
