The worst part about interviewing Beth Orton was not being able to then see her perform on the tour I was interviewing her about. Unfortunately, I was traveling internationally while she was in town promoting the excellent album Weather Alive. her first in over six years. We had a good chat over Zoom though while she dug into some toast and I gushed about my love for the song “Forever Young,” which was near the top of the list for my favorite tracks of 2022.
The interview was for a Vanyaland 617 Q&A, and we hit on Orton’s cover of the Beatles’ “I Me Mine,” the Peter Jackson documentary on the band and why the UK is a better place to live than the United States. Check out the interview and be sure to peep the video for “Forever Young” too.
