Today’s song is “Money Only Hates Me” by Annie Crane. This is the The latest track released from NYC-based folk singer Annie Crane’s upcoming album. This song is from her new album Jump With A Child’s Heart album which drops on October 4th, 2011 by Constant Clip Records. Crane uses her experience living in New York in her writing. The song was inspired by real-life events in which Crane lost her singing voice for three months in 2008. Frustrated with bad diagnoses from the only doctors she could afford, Crane eventually recovered, but not without being confronted directly with the harsh reality of being a have-not and a long rehabilitation. The silver lining is this song. “The city’s like a friend from childhood almost like… like distant kin. In one breadth enraging and supporting all I’d ever want to do,” sings Crane, summing up that time. Crane has a delightful voice and this is a sad, but beautiful, poignant.

Crane will be giving a way a copy of Jump With A Child’s Heart to each audience member that attends The Living Room performance. This past weekend Crane played record release party and will be launching several weeks of in bars, lounges and living rooms through the end of November.
