Macy Gray drops 'I Try' new version
Macy Gray returns with her 1999 Grammy-winning hit “I Try,” recorded anew as a jazz number. The latest version comes out ahead of Gray’s “jazz infused” album Stripped from Chesky Records.
“The new version [of ‘I Try’] feels totally effortless, yet just as influenced by love’s spell as the original,” she says in a statement.
The singer and her band recorded the album in a decommissioned church in Brooklyn in two days, and the track list is a mix of covers like Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” and new tracks like “Lucy.”
