Produced by T Bone Burnett

"Her best yet.  A slow-burning but powerful record." — Metro

'Merchant has a dramatic, richly supple voice with a rootsy twang that is equally impressive delivering a haunting 'Motherland', a banjo-flecked, Neil Young-like 'Saint Judas' or a low-slung, smoky 'Build A Levy'.' — The Times

Natalie Merchant's Motherland album (2001) is dedicated to the victims of the 9-11 plane crashes, which occurred just days after the recordings were finished.

Experienced producer and artist T. Bone Burnett brings his expertise to the table, which pays off in terms of its aural expression and positioning Merchants' songs in one coherent, excellent album. Her voice has deepened and her lyrics are socially conscious and intelligent, as always. Musically, each song stands on its own and fits seamlessly into the collection of tracks that make up Motherland.
