The essential Nina Simone album, "Fodder On My Wings", is making a long overdue reappearance on physical and digital!
Recorded in 1982, not long after she moved to Paris, Fodder On My Wings was one of Nina Simone’s favorite albums yet has remained one of her most obscure.
The original album will be expanded with three bonus tracks from the recording sessions from a rare French reissue released in 1988.
Nina Simone's childhood home is a National Treasure. Its weathered upright piano, rusty potbelly stove, linoleum remnants, and flaking teal paint represent Nina's earliest years, revealing how her home and the remote town of Tryon, North Carolina, shaped her.
Though the three-room home is not currently open to the public, you can explore it through a virtual reality tour from Google Arts & Culture, narrated by Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist, composer, actress, and playwright Nnenna Freelon.
