Suzanne Vega on Her Return, Lou Reed’s Puppy and Loving Macklemore. The singer-songwriter talks about the inspiration of her first new album in seven years. Vega is far less taken with a recreation of the early days of modern folk-the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, set in Greenwich Village about 15 years before Vega arrived there. Reluctantly, she recently saw it and came away baffled. The film, she says, doesn’t remind her at all of her friend Dave Van Ronk, whose life inspired the title character, and the church-like atmosphere in the club scenes were not what she remembers about the Village: Even a good audience would be blabbing, flirting and laughing.
Vega spent the past few years writing songs on the road, recording parts of the album in Chicago, London, Prague, Los Angeles, and New York City. Now with Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles, Vega reassures us of her ability to mesmerize with unusual lyrical thoughts and arrangements. Vega, perhaps best known for her hits Luka and Tom’s Diner, is no stranger to being placed in the other category for songs that break the mainstream mold. But truly, to me, this is what makes her work most endearing. A lot of the songs have to do with the body and wealth or lack of it. The Queen of Pentacles in the song in this case is sort of greedy and the fool is the opposite of that – he is free and he has no possessions. The character in Song of the Stoic is someone who has worked hard for anything that he has and really feels it in his body, feels life in his body.
