On March 12th Capitol Records finally released Ultra Violet’s LP “Ultra Violet.” A record that had been long forgotten back in 1973 when the label printed, but never released the LP. Ultra Violet was a colleague and superstar for Andy Warhol and was also known for running in the same circles as Salvador Dali. More importantly, she’s a talented French-American artist, author and vocalist.
The self-titled album includes 10 tracks ranging from popular tunes by Al Dubin and Harry Warren to original songs by Ultra Violet and Richard Currier as well as the French standard La Vie en Rose. Aside from the LP we can look forward to never-before-heard songs and conversations with the artists that will be released as an audio collection, available digitally and via CD worldwide this summer thanks to the indie label Refinersfire. Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali will make appearances on the collection in recordings of their conversations with the singer.
Ultra Violet was featured in “Then & Now,” a 16-minute documentary short that was directed by The Untitled Magazine‘s editor-in-chief Indira Cesarine. Watch below:
