The Singer is an album by Diamanda Galás released in 1992, largely featuring her versions of classic blues and gospel songs. The cover art is notable for a glamor shot of the artist, which on closer inspection reveals the words We are all HIV tattooed on her knuckles. The album is dedicated to people with AIDS, as is much of her work. My Love Will Never Die Willie Dixon. Reap What You Sow Mike Bloomfield, Nick Gravenites.

Jascha Narveson I've owned a copy of this album for years, but I bought it as a used CD and I always thought I should send Diamanda Galas ten bucks for this, because I love it so much - and now I can Even if the first track was all that was on the album it would be worth it. Favorite track: My Love Will Never Die. While the blues had always been a presence in Galas' work, The Singer was the first time she presented them on their own and she did so in a stark manner, with only herself on voice and keyboards. Her piano playing is fairly harsh and jagged, almost evoking a reined-in Cecil Taylor. But it's her vocal work that fans are interested in, and here she strikes an often awkward balance between her natural bent toward extreme stylings and the more conservative forms that the material tends to require.
