Juliana Guests on upcoming album from Magen Tracy & The Missed Connections

Juliana performs backing vocals on three tracks from Long Fuse Burning - an album due for release in August 2019 by Magen Tracy & The Missed Connections.

One such track - Move A Crowd - is released today.

Speaking to Vanyaland on their collaboration, Megan says of Juliana:

“The parts she came up with are so cool, and not always the obvious ones; I love the way she heard and layered the harmonies on. There’s something about what she does on the last line on the chorus on this track – ‘like the way I moved with you’ – that makes me think of ‘Please Mr. Please,’ an ONJ song she covered on her album (and, more recently, live with Liz Phair!). We managed to get her to do the same with two other tracks on the album before she left that day, and each time she brought out something new.”

Magen has been a member of Juliana's live band over the years and now her own band will be supporting at Juliana's Boston City Winery show on July 22.

Ryan Star album released, No Juliana

Ryan Star's album 11:59 is released today. Despite Star's interviews in April which suggested there would be a collaboration with Juliana included, she sadly doesn't feature.

Star told MusicVice.com:

"She actually sang background vocals on “So Ordinary” which is another track from Songs from the Eye of an Elephant, but it won’t be making this album. It didn’t make the cut. I felt like people already have it. I wanted to get the new songs out to everybody first. As much as I selfishly want to have Juliana and my voice together out there in the world, it’s just not happening yet."

To clarify, the version of So Ordinary from Star's 2005 debut album Songs from the Eye of an Elephant does not feature Juliana either.  If you have Spotify you can listen to this original version here (link opens Spotify) and ... imagine Juliana's voice on it.

Jody Porter on Juliana

A brief mention of Juliana in an interview with Jody Porter at Green Shoelace

GSL: You’ve worked with the likes of Albert Hammond Jr., Jesse Malin, Ivy and Juliana Hatfield. How did you decide to work with each of them? Are there any more collaborations you would like to do in the future?

"Well they’re all pals and I’m not that hard to find around the village. Albert and Jules have my digits so it was really just guesting on some friends’ records. I’d like to work with Jesus if he ever shows up."

Yes, this is not that interesting and hardly 'news' but it's posted now.  No going back.

Guest Vocals - Ryan Star

If you want to collaborate with Juliana it helps if your name is Ryan. 

Her involvement with that Cardinals fella has been well documented.

This week another Ryan - American singer / songwriter Ryan Star has revealed that Juliana performs backing vocals on his forthcoming album 11:59.

UPDATE: August 3, 2010

The album has now been released and Juliana is not on it.

In an article carried by the Huffington Post, Star says:

“(Juliana) sang on my record. It turned out she was a fan, you know, it goes years back. I saw her (when I / she) was younger, gave her one of my demos, and it turns out she knew who I was and was excited to sing.”

In CWG magazine he says Juliana was his favourite person to collaborate with, describing her as:

“the greatest fucking girl artist in the world.”

It looks like the recording may date back at least a couple of years as the release of 11:59 has been delayed several times and there is currently no firm date.  Perhaps Ryan should take note of his label’s history of releasing of songs involving Juliana.  Ryan Star is signed to Atlantic Records. 

Ryan Schmidt - Black Sheep, Run

And to complete the Ryan theme, a reminder that as reported last year, Juliana performs a duet with Boston singer / songwriter Ryan Schmidt on the track Night The Bells Rang on his new album Black Sheep, Run. The album is due for release on June 1, 2010 November 2, 2010. Listen to the track here:

In her recent unpublished book chapter Juliana mentioned sharing a stage with Bruce Springsteen - a moment captured on YouTube.  Watch the singer from The Hold Steady go "basically, nuts, jumping up and down like a giddy kid."Don't watch Juliana avoiding the mike.
