New Release: Thievery Corporation – ‘Saudade’

 

ESL220

Thievery Corporation‘s seventh studio album, Saudade, dropped today! Going back to the roots that originally brought them together, the duo dedicates this work entirely to bossa nova. Saudade in Portuguese means “a longing for something or someone that is lost, a contented melancholy, or, simply, the presence of absence.”

The album draws from classic Brazilian artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gal Costa, and Luis Bonfá, among others.

Listen to the lush and sensual “Depth of My Soul” after the jump.
