It has been some time since I last checked in on Sibylle Baier’s music, mostly because the 2006 reissue of her perfect album Colour Green seemed definitive and final. I listened to it for the better part of that year and have returned to from time to time since. I still think that “Remember the Day” stands as one of the finest folk songs I’ve heard period. After getting the temptation to put on her record today I stumbled across a new song that she’s laid down for family friend and director Wim Wenders for his recent film “The Palermo Shooting.” Also just added to her website by her son are some great photos of her.
Listen to the new song here:
