Laurie Anderson – Sharkey’s Day
Mister Heartbreak is the second album by avant-garde artist, singer and composer Laurie Anderson, released in 1984.
Like its predecessor, it contains reworked elements of Anderson’s United States (“Langue d’Amour,” “Kokuku,” (musical elements from “Rising Sun“) and “Blue Lagoon.” However, Anderson also introduced new material (“Sharkey’s Day”/”Sharkey’s Night” and “Gravity’s Angel”) while “Excellent Birds,” written in collaboration with Peter Gabriel, was written for a 1984 project for video artist Nam June Paik called Good Morning, Mr. Orwell.
