October 01, 2018 (Monday) - We extend considerable thanks to Grimy Goods of Los Angeles for their premiere of Thayer Sarrano's rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic "If It Be Your Will." From the article of the anonymous author, we quote: "Whatever hurdles, technical or personal, one must overcome as a singer/songwriter taking on the words of someone like Cohen, Sarrano carries the weight with an exceptional grace. Like an echo in a dark cathedral, Sarrano’s breathy murmurs are as gutting as they are isolated and exposed, explicating from the pained prayer she sings something voraciously intimate and personal."
This song -- "If It Be Your Will" -- is the B-side to the forthcoming 7-inch vinyl single of Sarrano, entitled "I Will Never Be Used to Your Beauty." The single is scheduled for release this Friday -- October 5th -- and all is well on the digital side. We are still awaiting the arrival of the vinyl, but will begin shipping upon receipt. For those customers who have already placed pre-orders, first of all, thank you.We will continue to confirm your orders, and keep you apprised of its fulfillment. We look forward to giving the Customs Offices of the European Union a considerable number of parcels to process very soon. As for Thayer Sarrano's lyrical book of drawings of the same title -- I Will Never Be Used to Your Beauty -- slated for simultaneous release, shipping will indeed begin this Friday. Thanks to all of the Sarrano fans for your pre-orders. We wish we could keep them all, every last single kettle-stitched book for ourselves. Alas, we will be mailing out copies to their new and rightful owners this very week. Thank you, Grimy Goods, for spreading the word on Sarrano. More is still yet to come. We can't wait to offer our readers links to articles about Sarrano from The Autumn Roses, Mystic Sons (London), and Come Here Floyd. In the meantime, you will need to resort to the search-engine of your choice to find them. (We know and hope you will survive.) Word on the streets of LA is that Thayer will be taping another song and live performance for BalconyTV this very week, with a scheduled release to be announced.
