All About Jazz: Press Release

All About Jazz features Kari Kirkland’s latest release | January 29, 2021

Kari Kirkland has just released the first single and accompanying video from her debut album, Wild Is The Wind, which itself is scheduled for a February 26 release. On “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” a jazz-inflected rendition of Tears for Fears’ 1985 chart-topping single, Kari’s honeyed vocals move the song’s original disheartening perspective on the state of the world to a much more hopeful place. The video version of the song is a touching and uplifting collage depicting the many small ways that everyone can rule their own worlds.
