ANTICIPATING: Yahzarah – Ballad Of Purple St. James

Last night on Twitter word spread that Yahzarah (aka Miss Purple St. James) had released a video for the song ‘The Tickler’ off her upcoming release The Ballad Of Purple St. James. At the time I wasn’t in a position to watch the video and so first thing this morning I headed over to YouTube, only to find it has been removed. I was disappointed, however I understand the video was leaked prematurely!

UPDATE: Thanks to the folks over at TIRM I have now located the video which you can view here.

yahzarah1For those of you not familiar with this super-talented songstress here is a quick bio: Yahzarah has released 2 previous solo albums (Hear Me and Blackstar) and an EP (The Prelude), she was a back-up singer for Erykah Badu, she worked extensively with HipHop group Little Brother and she is part of the ‘super-group’ Foreign Exchange, lending her vocal talents to Connected and Leave It All Behind.

The Ballad Of Purple St. James will be Yahzarah’s 3rd full length album, and is one of the most anticipated albums of ’09 in many underground/indie soul circles. So far 3 tracks from the project have surfaced on the internet, “Last To Leave” (see video), “Radio” and the aforementioned “The Tickler.”
