Esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Martha Wainwright presents Goodnight City (PIAS). The 12-track album is confessional, impressionistic and dynamic – songs that twist and turn with a surging intensity, showcasing her distinguished songwriting craft and commanding voice. Goodnight City includes several original works as well as songs written for this album by Beth Orton, Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, Glen Hansard and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs. The album was produced by Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard) and Brad Albetta (Angus and Julia Stone. Teddy Thompson).

Goodnight City smoothly segues from lush, contemplative pop and piano-driven folk to electrified rock and even sinister dance grooves, peppered with melodies both haunting and joyous. It was recorded mostly live with little overdubbing, sessions that capture a soaring, loose band and vocal performance by Martha to match.

Says Martha: "Making ‘Goodnight City' was the most fun I've had in a long time. Thomas (keys), Brad (electric/bass), Phil Melanson (drums), and I would sit in a circle and work out arrangements for these vividly different and very good songs. Recording them live with very few overdubs the focus remains on the integrity of the song and our ability to play together as a band. It was often exhilarating and sometimes for me, who was the most out of practice, quite exhausting. My fingers bled, my voice got sore but we pushed through to get to the sound of oneness which I think is achieved on this record."
