"This is a happy record," Teddy Thompson says of his new album 'A Piece of What You Need'. "Well, maybe not happy, but upbeat. Actually, maybe not upbeat, but it does have some up-tempo songs! Anyway, it's as close as I've gotten to making the record I've always wanted to make."

Indeed, happy or not, 'A Piece of What You Need', Teddy Thompson's fourth album overall and his third for Verve, is the London-born, New York-based artist's most ambitious and accomplished effort to date, showcasing his formidable vocal, songwriting and guitar talents while venturing into rewarding new musical and lyrical territory.

Thompson's trademark blend of catchy songcraft, pensive emotional insight and good-natured black humor is present on such new tunes as "In My Arms," "What's This?!!," "Don't Know What I Was Thinking" and the bittersweetly fatalistic "Turning the Gun On Myself."

The album's effortless pop sensibility is matched by a playful sonic palette that incorporates such aural surprises as the careening brass band on "Can't Sing Straight" and "One of These Days," or the Hitchcockian orchestral rushes that haunt the cinematic "Jonathan's Book."

'A Piece of What You Need' is a landmark for an artist whose creative restlessness continues to yield deeply compelling musical results. Thompson's sense of purpose — and sense of humor — are reflected in the song title that provides the album's name.
