Recorded At The Village: Melody Gardot’s “Currency Of Man”

On June 2nd, Melody Gardot released her fourth studio album, “Currency Of Man.” The album was recorded here at The Village, and produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Larry Klein.

“Currency Of Man” is stylistically different for Gardot, featuring her primarily on electric guitar – a departure from her typical piano heavy tracks. Furthering it’s uniqueness, the album was tracked to Analog tape, and tuned to 432hz.

We think the album is an absolute work of art, and Billboard agrees! Just this week, “Currency Of Man” went to #1 on Billboard’s Jazz Chart. Check it out here!
