‘To America’ is the new single from Joan As Police Woman’s second album, ‘To Survive’. A duet with long time cohort Rufus Wainwright, ‘To America’ is one of many highlights from a record destined for the Albums of the Year lists - ‘To Survive’ has already been long listed for the inaugural Uncut Music Award 2008.
Rufus and Joan have shared the same stage many times before – Joan was an integral member of his band - but last week in New York saw the tables turned when Rufus made an impromptu appearance with Joan As Police Woman at their Bowery Ballroom show for a fantastic live version of this stunning song.

‘To Survive’ is set to eclipse the brilliant success of Joan's debut (Real Life) album both critically and commercially.

4 stars - Q - 'To Survive is further testament to Joan Wasser's intoxicating talents'
4 stars - Observer Music Monthly - 'Maybe this is what Chopin would have sounded like had he been a modern-day multi-instrumentalist with a passion for Al Green and a voice like Roberta Flack'
The Word - 'Joan Wasser is a huge talent…To Survive’s combination of effortless musicality and raw emotion takes it into Nina Simone territory - yes, it's that enormous.'
