Macy Gray helps “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight” Celebrate Mardi Gras on Feb. 18, with Tunes from her New CD, “Covered”

Wherever Grammy winner Macy Gray goes, it’s a party.  Which is why Carolyn Fox is thrilled to have Macy as a featured guest on the Feb. 18th Mardi Gras edition of “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight.”

Since her single “I Try” from her debut CD, ON HOW LIFE IS became a massive global hit, Macy has been known writing and singing personal songs in her signature, textured voice.

Yet, on her new, upcoming CD, COVERED (to be released March 27th), Macy sings an eclectic collection of cover tracks, from the Eurythmics “Here Comes the Rain Again,” to Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” Colbie Cailatt’s “Bubbly” and Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown.”

What’s remarkable about this collection of songs, aside from the diversity of the tracks, is how Macy makes each song her own with a fresh, very personal approach.  “These were songs that I would’ve probably written in another life,” says Macy Gray.   Working with producer Hal Willner (Lou Reed, Marianne Faithfull, Laurie Anderson), this collection serves up biting, contemporary tunes with a unique twist.

You can hear a preview of the tracks on the new CD and Macy share why she chose to record them, as well as the inspiration for her fresh re-imagining of these songs, on the Feb. 18th special Mardi Gras edition of “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight” in Los Angels Saturday night at 1 AM on 1580 AM, on the show’s affiliate stations, and after the air date at
