Ani DiFranco - Reprieve

Reprieve is the fifteenth studio album by singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco, released on August 8 2006.

Righteous Babe Records' website notes that only DiFranco's bassist Todd Sickafoose, who had accompanied her on her recent tours, would be performing on the album.

The album has a dark, mournful, mellow sound reminiscent of 1999's To the Teeth and 2004's Educated Guess and features experimental arrangements with synthesizers, electronics and tape manipulation.As the recording of the album was briefly interrupted due to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the album has a heavily political and vaguely conceptual undercurrent that "paints a haunting portrait of New Orleans as the water retreats and the natives continue to rebuild their lives."The album cover was inspired by a picture of a real tree in Nagasaki which was partially destroyed by the atomic bomb.

While the city around it lay in ruin, this one tree stood, half of it destroyed, the other untouched.

DiFranco also references the eucalyptus tree in the title track about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

While the official release date of Reprieve was August 8, the album was made available for purchase on the iTunes Music Store between June 24 and June 27 2006, possibly in error, as the album date on the site was listed as 2002.
