Hear Martha Wainwright’s New Album a Week Early on Rdio

Martha_Wainwright _02__358

It’s in Martha Wainwright’s blood to perform music — her parents were Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III, and her brother, Rufus, is a successful musician, as well. But what counts is her music, and Wainwright’s incisive, observational lyrics and knack for melody and musical arrangements has made her a name regardless of her lineage.

Her first album in four years is Come Home To Mama, which fuses the passion of her debut album with the sophistication of her second. It’s out next week, but you can listen to the album a week early on Rdio, below.
