Lisa Stansfield - "All Around the World" (live) (video) (premiere)

The great soul diva returns with a live album celebrating her 2014 comeback.

In the wake of a 2014 comeback that saw her album Seven chart across Europe and the UK, British R&B/soul great Lisa Stansfield will be releasing the two-CD live album Live in Manchester next month. Fittingly, there's no better way to preview this release than with the song that started it all for her, the classic 1989 global smash "All Around the World". More than a quarter century later the classy yet sneakily gritty song has aged beautifully.

Live in Manchester will be released 4 September on earMUSIC.

Edward Gorey, Agent of Chaos

Two recent books on screenwriter, illustrator and author Edward Gorey, Born to Be Posthumous and Gorey's Worlds, are engaging works that show that Gorey's mystique remains safely impenetrable.
