The Muse: Kathleen Edwards, “Change The Sheets”
Don’t read too much into that title, as Edwards and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon aren’t exactly a tabloid-friendly pairing, despite both their rising stars of the moment. Do read into Vernon’s production, which does mountainous service to a voice as big as Edwards’ on this big parachute of an adult-contempo hit-to-be. Her ghostly, oscillating “wooo” hook is perfect for a valentine to “margaritas and sleeping pills”. And with the insistent pleas to “go ahead, run, run, run, run” she’s stumbled upon her first great driving song as well.
