‘Everything But The Girl’ Duo Tie The Knot

Congratulations to Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, who tied the knot sometime this year after a long courtship. Said Thorn on her MySpace blog: “A twenty seven year engagement may seem cautious to some of you, but I think in these uncertain times, it is as well to be sure of someone before you make any rash commitments.” (She is a very wise woman.) And to make this bit of news go from “awesome” to “yay-inducing,” it was announced in a post about the songs on her followup to 2007’s masterful Out Of The Woods. (Lots of songs about divorce on the new one, apparently/ironically.) To celebrate all this news, why not watch the heartstring-pulling video for Woods“Raise The Roof”? [Tracey Thorn’s MySpace Blog]
