Joan As Police Woman - Real Life

£10.00

Real Life - Real Life is the first album by Joan as Police Woman, released by Reveal Records in the UK on June 12, 2006, and a year later in the United States.

In addition to the standard jewel-case release, it was released in a limited-edition digipak with Joan Wasser art card and as a 2-disc expanded edition.

"I Defy" was co-written by the Antony and the Johnsons' singer Antony Hegarty, who also contributes vocals to the track. The album has received much critical acclaim, being variously described as "splendidly slinky", "a magical journey", and "a fine showcase". In her review in The Guardian, Caroline Sullivan described the album as "pensive and gentle; sometimes stately of tempo, sometimes slightly breathless, but always erring on the side of lovely understatement. In early 2008, Real Life won in The 7th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album
