American folk singer songwriter Jessica Pratt’s ‘As The World Turns‘ was used on the soundtrack of the superb season finale of The Morning Show this week — The Morning Show, Season 1, Episode 10, “The Interview, which aired on December 20th, 2019.
‘As The World Turns‘ is from Pratt’s Quiet Signs the third and latest studio album from the Los Angeles-based artist.
Released in February, 2019 via the Kemado Records label, Quiet Signs is the first album the 32-year-old singer recorded in a professional studio. Previously, she had recorded albums in her bedroom on an analogue tape.
The release received critical acclaim from media companies like All Music, the UK music magazine Q and Uncut. It also currently has an 84 score on Metacritic from 23 critics.
The album charted in four countries — the United States, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Scotland.
Its highest chart result was in the U.S. where it reached #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.
The music on Quiet Signs is folk-influenced, but also has a jazz feel to it. Especially in the way Pratt plays the acoustic guitar. It is a lovely work.
Quiet but extremely powerful, mystical and quite mesmerizing in its dreaminess.
‘As The World Turns‘ was one of two tracks from the singer that appeared on the episode. The other ‘6 Ariette: No. 1, Malinconia, ninfa gentile‘ was heard as we saw Alex and Chip passing each other on the escalators.
