THREE DAYS 'TIL THE ALBUM DROPS!ETA:
Another new song, "Maybe Tomorrow", was just added to her MySpace
, so be sure to check that out, as well!
Heather just posted a blog entry
announcing the upcoming (October 10th!) release of her new album, The Jasmine Flower
, and well as a list of tour dates.
I have some good news – on October 10th I will be releasing an album of all new material, called "The Jasmine Flower".
I played around a lot over the last 2 years with different sounds and ideas, but in the end I decided I wanted to make my most stark record to date, so I recorded the songs with just me and my guitar. Afterwards we added a string quartet to a few tracks.
I have a home studio here in Bermuda, but when I was ready to put down the tracks, the whole thing started breaking down – first the mixing desk then the computer itself died. I was very "in the zone" to record and didn't want to wait what could be weeks for all new gear to arrive, so I decided it was a lesson in simplicity– I realized I could still record and mix the album on my solar powered laptop. So there you have it – that's all you need to make a great sounding album. Sun and songs.
I think the songs must be good, because most of them make me feel pretty uncomfortable, which is a sign that I have plumbed the depths and dug for truth, no matter how unsettling.
I will also be including a bonus CD - a concert recording from my last tour.
I hope you enjoy the album, and I hope to see you on tour.
Here is the track listing:
OUT ON A LIMB
