The ambitious rock opera Hazards of Love Was released in 2009. It was a much anticipated concept album following The Crane Wife, which was also a concept album. The LP featured many guest musicians, including Becky Stark (of Lavender Diamond), Shara Worden (of My Brightest Diamond), and Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), and Robyn Hitchcock contributing on guitar. The Hazards of Love is a Shakespearian tale of tragedy. The track below is called The Queen’s Rebuke/The Crossing featuring Worden on vocals. It’s a high energy electric track that is made more powerful by the amazing voice of Shara Worden.
