Album of the Day
Hotel Paper [Deluxe Edition]
After an impressive 2001 debut, singer-songwriter Michelle Branch made a strong return two years later with HOTEL PAPER; the Maverick collection debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard chart and has been certified platinum. Its baker's dozen originals show the young performer - not yet 20 at the time of release – taking her success in stride, with such songs as “Breathe,” “'Til I Get over You” and the Grammy-nominated “Are You Happy Now?” seeking out balance in a hectic world. The digital Deluxe Edition adds several bonus tracks, including non-LP sides “Wanting Out” and “Lay Me Down,” as well as a fine cover of Joni Mitchell's “A Case of You.” This is Michelle Branch's birthday, and we'll wish her a happy one with HOTEL PAPER.
