Annie Lennox Performs “Georgia On My Mind” Live

Annie Lennox has released a live performance video for her take on the Ray Charles classic “Georgia On My Mind”. The song is taken from Annie’s upcoming seventh studio album Nostalgia, out October 21st. The album features Lennox’s fresh and hauntingly beautiful takes on iconic American compositions by such artists as Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.

On Nostalgia, Annie pays tribute to some of the greatest artists of the 20th century, interpreting compositions that have moved her, stripping them down to their emotional and musical core and making them her own. Songs like “Memphis In June,” “Strange Fruit,” “I Can Dream, Can’t I?” and “God Bless The Child” continue to resonate as we face the complexities of modern life.

Lennox will talk about the personal meaning she found in the songs of Nostalgia when she guests on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, October 22, and she will be the subject of a feature on NPR’s “Morning Edition” airing the same week.
