"... presents Wright as the substantial talent she is and in the warm, stylish spotlight she deserves."
- The Wall Street Journal

"... another side to the charismatic singer’s character. It is positively funky in parts and elsewhere explores more romantic, sensual and seductive emotional territory. One of the great voices of modern music and another album which maintains her high standards and integrity."
- TheJazzBreakfast.com

Five years after her critically acclaimed, gospel-laden album Fellowship, Lizz Wright delivers the powerful Freedom & Surrender, produced by multiple Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein, best known for his work with Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux and Tracy Chapman. The collection of mostly originals has been called her sexiest, most sensual release yet. She wrote 10 of the songs and carefully chose covers, including a slowed-down version of the Bee Gees’ ballad To Love Somebody. Gregory Porter joins Wright for a duet on the track Right Where You Are. Klein earned yet another Grammy nomination for his work on this recording.

"When the label suggested that I consider working with Larry Klein, my entire focus shifted with a warm shrug, 'Why not? He's produced some of my favourite records.' Within a few conversations I had found plenty of reasons to trust the voice on the other end of the line."
- Lizz Wright

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
