This Girl’s In Love: A Bacharach And David Songbook is the fourth studio album by British singer-songwriter Rumer (Sarah Joyce), released in November 2016 via EastWest Records.

After trying her hand at writing her own vintage-inspired material with 2014's Into Colour, singer Rumer returned to her core inspiration of covering classic '60s and '70s pop with the sophisticated This Girl's In Love (A Bacharach & David Songbook).

This Girl's In Love finds Rumer applying her supple vocals and soft-focus aesthetic to songs written by the legendary team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. While Rumer has most certainly sung many of these songs in live settings, it's surprising, given her association with the time period, that she's never actually recorded any of this material in the past.

Here, we get renditions of such beloved songs as Dusty Springfield's "The Look Of Love", the Carpenters' "(They Long To Be) Close To You", and Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By". We also get to hear a sweetly gruff-voiced Bacharach sing the intro to the album's title track, a rewording of the Herb Alpert hit "This Guy's In Love With You".

Rumer doesn’t simply stick to the best-of hits and peppers the album with some well-curated, lesser heard choices like the poetic "Balance Of Nature", the heartbreaking "Are You There (With Another Girl)", and the harmonically nuanced "The Last One To Be Loved".

As with her past albums, these are gorgeously rendered productions featuring orchestral-tinged arrangements that capture the golden era of soft pop without falling into garish pastiche. While the album is technically one of Rumer's most faithfully old-school, it still sounds fresh, and the analog production aesthetic only works to magnify the purity, lyricism, and expressiveness of her voice.

This Girl's in Love (A Bacharach & David Songbook) serves to reinforce the idea that Rumer stands as one of the brightest torchbearers for the easy listening AM pop that Burt Bacharach and Hal David helped make such an indelible part of 21st century pop history.

Check out the tracks: "What The World Needs Now", "Walk On By"; “Balance Of Nature” and “(They Long To Be) Close To You”.

This LP with printed inner sleeve and digital download code is pressed in Europe on black vinyl.
