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!!!

new vblog up xxx

Yeeoooooo

Just got the new vblog up.

here's the blurb to go along with it x

Hello... a right old rambling of me trying to get across various things and actually looking back on it not playing you very much music er... anyway...I mostly re-visited Tidal and I absolutely love it now. Swoon sneak peak.. and whizzy BBD thing... I did a lot more than that.. but yeah. Got the beginnings of a new track down. It's gonna be all a cappella (apart from a few birds and possible fire cracklings). Listen to Mic Check for reference on type of vocal sounds... this is super rough, thrown down in a couple of hours. Now lyrics to write... couldn't sleep last night and so sat up laptop on duvet cover and typed some bits. Something about being in the moment. What it takes to get there. What sets it up. Pain, water, a kiss, longing... threading something together and hopefully get that down so I can play you more before long.

Loving twitter...Twitter

If you're hungry for more updates from me then sign up for that. it's a micro version of this. Day to day sometimes hour to hour. Want some others to follow? I like these guy's music. Miloshmusic and DavidSugar (just started .. please encourage!) Also Calvin Harris and Stephen Fry super active and fun.

Twitter related : Going to release those vocal files for whoever wants to put music to it too by 12th Feb as something for Twestival. It was a song Idea I came up with for an animation that never happened... music was going to be done by someone else... but now that person is you! The song that never was... but will once some of you have a go of it.

Mostly feeling good about stuff... you know how it goes though...after the big highs come the big old lows. life would be pretty dull without these waves though eh?

Lots of love fluv to you all and thanks again for following.
yours Heap x

I didn't know "Mic Check" existed before now, so thank you for mentioning it!

I found a copy to listen to and it was beautiful. I wish you could make it available on iTunes so I could purchase it (it's not on iTunes US, at least).

Continuing to look forward to the new album!
 
Sweet! Are where are the links for the vocs so I can start playing with em?
 
Hi Immi,

I keep checking back here to see if the vocal tracks you mentioned have been posted yet. I'm ready!

Also, I loved the short demo you played of the (so far) a cappella track. It reminds me a lot of Jon Anderson's harmonies - especially songs like "Leave It". Good stuff!

I'm ready too...for the vocals that is.. the mouse is hovering over the 'New Project' button in Logic 8....
