He’s funny that way, new EP of Andrea Motis

He’s Funny That Way is the EP from Emotionl Dance, the latest album of Andrea Motis, and it has already been presented in a few national and European jazz festivals.

Swing, jazz, bossanova… themes arranged especially for her, and also new territories that Motis explores. It is the first of her works that includes songs in Catalan: a version of La Gavina (very known Catalan song, named “The Seagull”), a theme of the Amics de les Arts (a very famous Catalan band), another theme of pianist Ignasi Terraza and another one of Valencian Perico Sambeat; and it is also the first time an album includes original compositions of Andrea Motis, namely three of the tracks on the album are her own.

The news on Spanish Television (TVE) echoed all these and they spoke with her about the new album that’s coming, under the label Impulse! (video is in Catalan).

But this time we have a very special and quite long interview made in English, so you can enjoy knowing all the details explained by Andrea herself:

An “appetizer” of 3 tracks

While the album arrives, the label has prepared a super limited edition EP with three songs, one of which is an original of hers (If you give them more). You can already order it, only in our online shop and for a very short time.

These are the titles included in He’s funny that way:

  1. He’s funny that way
  2. If you give them more
  3. I will remember you

In concert
