SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Macy Gray, newly signed with 429 Records, is ready for the release of her stunning new album "COVERED"-- a collection of all new recordings of handpicked songs she's chosen to reinterpret in her own inimitable fashion. With a buzz kicked off by an announcement in Billboard and Rolling Stone, Macy is already confirmed to appear on prime media outlets including Howard Stern, Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, Tavis Smiley and more. Produced by Hal Willner ( Lou Reed, Metallica), Zoux and Macy Gray "COVERED" tackles material largely drawn from indie rock songs from the last decade--interpretations her fans will be familiar with as she's been performing them live over the years. The album contains biting, dark signature tracks such as Arcade Fire's "Wake Up" or My Chemical Romance's "Teenagers" which Gray subversively overhauls into something wholly her own. Also included are short skits featuring J.B. Smoove, Nicole Scherzinger and a guest appearance by Idris Elba. The first single "Sail" was #1 Most Added at AC radio for the 3rd week in a row with 5 more add. "COVERED" will be released worldwide on 429 Records TODAY with a special iTunes edition available which contains exclusive remixes of "Sail" and "Here Comes The Rain Again." In addition, Macy is on the verge of announcing a worldwide tour and has just completed the first video from the project. Helmed by famed director Robert DeVico (Pink, Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliott), the wildly colorful, party-inspired video for "Smoke Two Joints" premiered on both Perez Hilton.com and Aol in the first week.

Says Colbie Caillat: "I am honored Macy Gray is covering my song "Bubbly." I have always loved her voice and her music. Listening to her beautiful version makes me smile."

Since her dazzling debut introduced this singular talent to the masses, Macy has forged an uncompromising musical path beholden to her own vision and garnering accolades at every juncture. With "COVERED" Macy has turned the cover album concept on its ear choosing edgy contemporary choices and approaching them in an innovative and uncompromising way. Not surprising considering she's spent her career defying expectations and stretching musical boundaries.
