Speaking of Mr. Merritt

NPR has just launched a live streaming music website that has a lot of cool videos and things on it. One new series, Project Song gives an artist 48 hours to write and record a song in a studio, inspired by a photograph and a word. I am, of course, delighted that Stephin Merritt was the first one they chose. Watching someone who has been my favorite singer-songwriter for a decade go through the process of writing and producing a song is so so awesome, even though he explains at the end of the segment that his usual writing process is much more drawn out.

Watch the video and hear the new song here.
