Right then...I've begun the 3rd album (the follow-up to 'Speak For Yourself'). I'm going to write a more frequent blog as I did with the last one so you can keep an eye on me and make sure I'm not slacking! I wonder how it's gonna turn out? How exciting! You're very welcome to comment but please don't ask me questions on here or i'll never get any work done. You can email me with any questions you have and every month we'll pick 20 from the virtual 'hat' and post them. Send your questions to: igrill@imogenheap.com

Much much more to come! Love, fluv x i x Wheeeeee!!!

damned if i'm not green with mop envy.
Hello Imogen. Please excuse me if this is rambling because I’ve worked 47 hours this week already with another 12 or more to go, but hopefully there will be some rhymes to my reasons. I’ve been working on a commercial for new Covergirl lip glosses. There are some new pinks that I think you would like:)

Anyway, thank you again for chronicling the construction of your studio and the remodeling of your house. I’m really looking forward to the new sounds that you will create, and just the potential of what it will be. Looking forward to it as much of the new U2 album, which would mean more if you knew me. I’m not trying to give you any stress of expectation, so hopefully I’m not. I’m confident in your talent and abilities, and I want to encourage you on this endeavor. Speaking of U2, did you ever read this little blurb where The Edge commented on when he heard Hide and Seek for the first time. He said he was in his car and had to pull over to the side of the road to listen to it because he really liked how it sounded. Speaking of Hide and Seek, have you ever played the 7” single at 33 speed? It’s sort of interesting considering it is all vocals.

It is really cool that you are taking Japanese lessons. I’ve been interested in doing that myself the past few years, but there is no way I currently have the time for it. I suggested a book to you before about the legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. I don’t know if you’ve seen his films and/or like them, but if you have and do, there is another great book called Waiting on the Weather: Making Movies with Akira Kurosawa. His script girl who ended up being a producer wrote it. The book is so good.

So, check this out. After listening to Milosh’s album Meme a few times, I thought, “What would happen if I’d randomly rearrange the tracks?” I thought of this, because the album seems to have this atmospheric connectivity. I did it and it works. I feel like it is an album that you can remix. I would highly doubt he intended this, and I’m not trying to say that a lot of work didn’t go into track arrangement, because I know how much work that takes. Anyway, you should give it a try.

Alright, I need to go to bed, because I have to wake up in 6 and a half hours. I hope you have a great weekend.
It looks like the place is really starting to come together. I'm curious to see what it's going to look like when it's done.

I have a completely random question for you if you. A while back, you had a partial track of "Deal with It". I'd really like to buy it. Do you have any plans to release this as a single or part of an Album? I'd really like to get a copy of it.

I know you're pretty busy, but that's a good thing! I hope all is well with you!
