Well :
- the tour is anounced on Berit's agenda, so Berit will be lead guitar on the tour.
- if Berit is lead guitar, Vincent isn't (unless Heather does want two leads guitar, which doesn't really make sense)
- either Vincent will play someting else, or he won't play in this tour.


If Heather invited Berit, she will play the lead guitar for sure. And this s predictable, as the tour will be rocking. Why not count on people who make half of the show?

I think he was taking care of everything to work like the tuning of guitars.

I can confirm that Vincent accompanied Heather with acoustic guitar in Dublin on some songs: London Rain, Rose gold, Walk this world, your words, norwegian wood.

There's a new Strange Moments track out now! First one since November 2016, this one features the other singer, Marzena. Check it out, this one is really delicate.

What a great song! It reminds from an song development and from the sound to some songs by Yes. I love even more the voice and intuitive voice of Marzena, maybe Ian Anderson is to precise in vocals, has not that edge like she.

Well, it is not Merchcowboy who processed this special order.
I think Heather is good in rowing or to canoe, but the distance to Europe simply takes time!

Absolutely high standard. No song to skip for me too. And when I understand all stories behind, I like the songs even more.
I still need to understand the album more. Not just listening to the tunes. I still need to discover the album for me.

On one hand your analysis is surely close, on the other hand I am focused on just the song without the reason to why it got composed. Sure it might help the reason behind to understand, but I think i was just composed to express Heather nature and feelings. And that is what I want to learn and discover.

oh no, it is really on youtube, somehow for free? Seems like Youtube is doing a bad job then. I hate the politics of google anyway. It's a monemaking machine who sell yor personal data. Young people do not take care anyway to sell.
Anyway Youtube doesn't respect really the rights of an artist. I try to not use google related services.

I totally understand, just wanted to tell what the official lyrics are.
I so much like our lyrics section here as it tells us at least close what Heather was really singing.
So please keep up doing.
As you haven't yet got the CD, I just would like to know which recording you are listening to so that i can agree or not. Well I'm not a native speaker so and might hear it in a different anyway.

"you are light" is in the CD booklet and the lyrics book. I'm not sure which recording you are listening to to transcribe the lyrics.

I think there were two books advertised in the campain in the beginning, the Lyrics Book and Making the Album. They were merged into one book.

Although I haven't read it yet, it is very nice. It has a hard cover and contains the lyrics, the chords, photos, explanation "behind the songs", notes regadings the musicians and the artwork.

It seems to be sold out meanwhile

Maybe. I doubt so. I think Heather needs to take care to limit the costs, as there are seldom new fans understanding her songs. Every musician costs extra. I think Vincent can do the job as well most likely if really needed. Which song is supposed to need a bass player?

Hi

Anybody who knows the band members for the upcoming tour?

Best regards


Nobody knows so far.

I think so it will be:

Heather (for sure )
Vincent (same)
Geoff Dugmore (drums, also on the album)
Berit Fridahl (as the tour dates are on her website)
Midori Jaeger (cello, as it need a cello and she played on oyster tour and the album)

It is like a weather forecast from the weather experts and then everything changes unexpectedly

Susannah, her sister, but that was in the 1989 demos.

She's mentioned people like Georgia O'Keefe or Jesus in the third person.

"Felix" never appeared in her songs, nor the painter's name. I think that's what she means. Usually with family it's either general "you" (Drink It In) or "my sister", "my father" etc (Blue Black, Turn The Ship Around, etc.)

Berit is mentioned by name in the poem Murmur.


1989 demos?
Found it in my digital library, need to find the physical CD.

My first impression about the songs hasn’t changed yet, apart from Your words. I wasn’t fond of it when hearing it last year and it’d have probably stayed that way. But when I recently wrote a kind of report about my point of view and my emotional state to some people, I got the feedback by one person, saying, he was deeply touched by my words. This was such a gift for me. And since then, I like this song much better, because I can somehow relate to it on a personal level.

To me, music is quite an emotional thing. I’m not a music expert at all and don’t analyze songs too much by giving attention to structures or so. If a song touches me on any level and moves me in any way for what reason ever or not, that decides if I like it or not. Sometimes I can’t even explain why.
But I understand that others (especially music-wise people) see it in another way and have a different approach to it.


I'm really happy for you that you got that touching feedback.
I think I simply love "Your Words" as your words and songs come up in mind.
Great you are touched now as well by this songs!

I like your words in an acoustic way and the songs, but like most of us I have no idea what the songs are about in detail.

To me, the whole album remains quite disappointing.
It is not bad and if this was her debut album, I’d be more than satisfied. But after Glowstars and Oyster, I set the bar much higher.
I value her for her total openness she has usually in her songs, especially on those albums named before. I mean, she has lyrics like Island, Sugar, Blue Black, Walking higher, I’m Alive, Ride, Out in New Mexico,... where there is such a depth and total revelation. I miss that on Pearl. The lyrics stay quite vaguely and the music doesn’t catch me on most songs either. My favourite is still After all this time, which has touched me the first time I heard it, for what reason ever.

Her wonderful, unique voice, which I usually love, gets even somehow nerving to me at the end of Some things just come undone and in All the rivers. I don’t know, if it’s because she wants to rock by all means, when her voice is not really made for it, imho. That’s not a failure or a flaw, it’s simply not that, what makes her so outstanding and special. But as said, just my opinion.
To me, there are much more songs I like on Redbird and South (I guess, my least favourite albums) with deeper, more touching lyrics.

Heather said, the songs on Pearl were the ones written quite recently. Somehow I wonder, how the songs sound, which she wrote shortly after her split-up some years ago.

And "Vincent, yours is the first name I’ve ever sung." Umm….no.

But I know, as often I am pretty much alone with my opinion; so good for those of you, who are fond of Pearl.


I need to listen more often to the album, but from a first two or three listens your thoughts are not far away from mine so far.

Haven't yet translated all the lyrics so. Not listented to all interviews. And well not yet the lyrics book, which I hope explains a lot.

Interesting interview with Heather (in German): RNZ

Sebastian isn't much interested in his mother's music (he prefers hip-hop) and she opposes Brexit.


Maybe Heather should apply for a second passport before this stupid Brexit, a german one or from any other european country doesn't really matter.

In regards to Sebastian, who understand their parents or musical taste in his age? Well just reminds me of me.

Music and songs are something that goes to your heart and your soul. It eather touches you or not. And even after years it might change. I still have a connection to those songs I like earlier in my life and some stay same and some not so much anymore. It is even possible to rediscover songs you not liked in previous years and were disliked or not understood before.

I am just quoting a part of your message, like the summary.

When talking of better or not, this is on a a high level for me as in general I like so pretty much all what Heahter does, well sure are songs that hit me more or less.

I also love the rawness and edge of the early previous albums as well as intense like Storm and Jasmine. From this point of view Pearl it might me a bit smooth or produced to much in detail.

The interviews links posted here really helped me to understand the reason of most of the songs. You cannot evaluate a song without it's meaning!

But in the end, it is out, and it is good. I have to re-listen, of course, but if I have to compare with the last time we were supposed to be a rock powerful album, I spoil you all at once : Pearl is better, by far, to 300 Days. It is not, either "even better than Oyster" as Heather pretends, for Oyster has rawer music and stronger lyrics, but it's a nice work, and, for once, the rock album is a rock album . Let's enjoy it.

Welcome greenlilly and thanks for joining and providing the information. Indeed Odyssey and also Merchcowboy is very responsive in helping out what is missing. They had a lot to do with the relase to deliver in time for most of us.

This forum software is very old, so if you face issues let me know and I try to solve. As we have somehow 140.000 postings I don't want to change anything here to not loose the entire history of posts.

Enjoy,
gerd

I called at their office and if you write an e-mail to heathernova@odyssey-music.net they will help you out and send the track.
I hope that helps someone.

Rewild Me and See Yourself and Your Words are my favourites from a first few listens. Haven't yet posted any review of the album as I first want to understand all the songs.

Rewild Me reminds me a bit to I Miss My Sky how it develops although it is different.

I got those few VIP tickes that I have ordered. Those are hard tickets, no printout, so very nice in this digital world. Instead of just the ticket you get even CD and Shirt for mayby 30 Euro more and Meet and Greet!

Gerd, I just phoned Merchcowboy right now and they admitted that they have indeed forgotten to process my order! They confirmed nothing was sent to me yet, and as my order status wrongly stated "completed", they thought everything was done already and there is nothing to do anymore for them. Oh well... So it was good I called them today so they can finally process my order. Plus, they will investigate again what will happen with the postcard, that I never got, while others got it more than two months ago.


I do know. Had a nice talk with them a few minuits later I guess, told them about yuor issues, where already forwarded to th management about the postcard.

I think we should not make stress to the company in charge. I got confimation that my three or four items are sent out and deliverred by DHL.

I can wait a few days longer. Friday is maybe not the perfect day so to release an album to get it the same day. I don't think there is no argue to escalate delivery.

Thanks so much Bernd for finding this link/interview!
I think it is really great! I'm impressed and love so much how Heather explained everything about her life and the new album. This will help for sure to understand it once it arrived and I can listen to it.

I translated it via deepl. Forget Google.
Probably Heather did an album related promotional little concert or just played a few songs. I doubt it will be live.

Here is a link but maybe not correct. Ther are so many radio stations belonging to them.

I think, I simply can’t relate to most of the already listened songs of the album at the moment. If I was happily in love like Heather and all would be easy-going in my life, I guess I’d like them much more.
Don’t get me wrong, I really love to see her privately so happy, for she deserves it so much and this certainly comes out in her music as well, but I’m personally more in the mood for her melancholic and darker songs lately. (Just listened e.g. to “The Jasmine flower” the other day and still love it dearly.) So that’s perhaps one more reason for my lack of enthusiasm for “Pearl”. But there’s still hope, that I like the other songs of the album better.


Thank you! This matches totally with my thoughts!

I guess all songs are inspired as always by her feelings and this time reflects her love to Vincent. Probably all songs. Even one song is called by his name. Your words is really sweet, the reprise song, surely dedicated to Vincent. Hope it is acoustic like on previous live concerts. Looking forward to the song that Mark impressed in Bermuda, Rewild me!

In a previous post I said I reset whathever I heard about the album. So I will wait to listen to it to get my personal feeling of the entire album.

I am very thankful that Heather shares her music and thougths. I'm sure I will follow her for my lifetime as it touches me, although I am not connected to most of those stupid social media.
