Sam Phillips – Tell Her What She Wants To Know

For seven seasons, Sam Phillips scored the television show Gilmore Girls, creating the soundtrack that played alongside the lives of the beloved characters on the hit WB show. The show’s soundtrack cd, Our Little Corner of the World: Music From Gilmore Girls, featured a number of Sam’s cues and a new tune, “Tell Her What She Wants To Know.”

Since then, “Tell Her What She Wants To Know,” has been rerecorded from the original version heard on the show. Sam went back and reinterpreted the song, presented here, as part of her ambitious year-long Long Play project. The Long Play – a music and art installation on the web which provided members five EPs and a full-legnth album (along with a smattering of bonus tracks and other exclusive content) – was universally hailed by the press and embraced by fans. ”Phillips has thrown open a virtual door to her creative world,” wrote the LA Times, “inviting in fans over the course of a year to watch and participate as she writes and records a new album.” For the time being, The Long Play remains open for business – allowing any new subscribers full access to all the content created during the Long Play project.

Sam Phillips – When I’m A Camera

This past week Sam Phillips released the final phase of her ambitious year-long Long Play project – the stunning full-legnth album Cameras in the Sky. The Long Play – a music and art installation on the web which provided members five EPs and a full-legnth album (along with a smattering of bonus tracks and other exclusive content) – was universally hailed by the press and embraced by fans. The digital release of Cameras in the Sky concludes this wonderful project… ”Phillips has thrown open a virtual door to her creative world,” wrote the LA Times, “inviting in fans over the course of a year to watch and participate as she writes and records a new album.” For the time being, The Long Play will remain open for business – allowing any new subscribers full access to all the content created during the past year.

We are especially proud to present to you one of our personal favorites from the new record, “When I’m a Camera”… we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

COMING LATER THIS YEAR: Sam is finishing Pretty Time Bomb, a conventionally (digital and physical formats) released second album of all-new material. Sam fans rejoice! We will most likely never see this much material released in such a short time span again! We’re very, very happy.
