The Bald and The Beautiful
The Decca PR department is staging the release of Bartoli’s latest album as a treasure hunt – a little wacky, a little ham-handed, but at least they’re trying.
Also: Bartoli. In a black frock. They had me at Bartoli.
You can join the hunt if you use either Twitter or Facebook (I use neither nor) or can hack them.
I have mixed feelings about the restrictive social media tie-in, but I have very clear feelings on a new Indianatoli Jones music excavation, that could be summed up with “utter, gleeful delight and curiosity”. And as an alternative cover – like this, no Bartoli-loving vampire will be able to look at it, which is a clear violation of the EU anti-discrimination guidelines – I suggest Bartoli in a Fedora and leather jacket. Whip otional.
