Third Man Records
The debut album from The Haden Triplets and Third Man Records!
Produced by Ry Cooder
"Their songs (sung) in close harmony, (are) calling back to such warm acts as the Carter Family ..." Rolling Stone
Third Man Records presents the debut album from The Haden Triplets. These are songs steeped in history and sung in a close harmony that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay that can only come from being born mere seconds apart from each other. It's been rendered and produced beautifully by American music legend Ry Cooder.
The Haden sisters aren't newcomers, yet this is their first album. Separately and together, have contributed to recordings and performances by the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer, Beck, Green Day, Todd Rundgren, the Rentals and Silversun Pickups.
Their debut expands on their American roots musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs. Here's a little more about it in the Hadens' own words.
"During our early life, we were surrounded by music on both sides of our family. We visited our dad's family in Springfield, Missouri, where they taught us old country songs they used to perform on the radio as The Haden Family. Our grandparents on our mother's side used to sing us to sleep with old Yiddish songs. Growing up, we often had music playing in the house, whether it be our mom playing Billie Holiday and Nina Simone records, or our dad playing Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman in the living room.
"We met Ry when we played with his son Joachim, and Joachim asked him if he'd sit in for our show. Once Ry heard we were singing 'Voice From On High' by Bill Monroe, he was in right away. The next day we got a call from Ry suggesting we record an album. We wrote down a collection of songs we all liked, then narrowed it down to the music that became The Haden Triplets album. These songs are rich in history, and by recording them we hope to help keep them alive." — Tanya, Rachel and Petra Haden
