Sadie Jemmett covers Townes Van Zandt's americana classic

At My Window is the latest single from critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Sadie Jemmett. It was originally written and recorded by the legendary Townes Van Zandt (1944-1997) and appeared on the 1987 album of the same name.

Sadie first recorded the song for her brother, theatre director Dan Jemmett, who asked her to arrange a stripped-down version of the song for his play, Clytimnestra Apocalypse, which toured Europe in 2017.

“It is one of my favourite Townes Van Zandt songs and I feel that its melancholy lyrics capture the collective mood right now, one of longing and isolation,” she said.

The video also features the fabulous ‘Phoenix Band’: Ian Cuthbert – keyboards; Andy Phillips -drums and Mark Sykes on bass, who Sadie has been working with recently and was filmed and edited by Jonathan Kelly.

As a prolific singer-songwriter and composer for theatre, it’s rare for Sadie to cover other artists’ songs, but she knew this one was perfect as her next single and she has recorded a powerful version of a great song, performed sensitively yet with a confident strength that captures the heartfelt meaning of the original.

At My Window is released on FRIDAY 25 SEPTEMBER by TwoUpTwoDownRecords/Absolute via Universal on all DSP and is available to pre-save now.

This is the third single release so far this year from Sadie Jemmett. In June she released The Killing of George Floyd in response to the tragic events in Minneapolis and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
At the beginning of the year Sadie also released Rescue Street, a single from her latest album, Phoenix, with a video shot in Brighton and featuring TV actor Jason Hughes.

With a UK and European tour cancelled for this year, Sadie has performed a series of livestreams on Facebook, which led to a private-release album (Lock Down Live) of cover songs for her fans, which she has released herself on digital download and cassette format.
