Mister Heartbreak is the second album by avant-garde artist, singer and composer Laurie Anderson, released in 1984. Like its predecessor, it contains reworked elements of Anderson's United States ("Langue d'Amour", "Kokuku", based on musical elements from "Rising Sun", and "Blue Lagoon").
Mister Heartbreak (LP, Album). Here, Laurie Anderson with her plexiglas violin in hand, continues her electronic saga with this incredible score. Mr. Heartbreak could be loosely considered a conceptual piece, though a string of events may be more accurate, regarding the day in a life of someone, anyone. Laurie, you, I or perhaps even the person’s vacation we read about, hastily scribbled on the back of a postcard we were to find blowing down the street. From a seemly small insignificant event, Laurie Anderson has managed to weave what would seem to be a life time of events into a musical story. The songs Sharkey’s Day.
