Not sure if it fits in these categories, but the song Sail On is a poem by Heather's father A. John Frith, while Heather composed the music.

Good to know it got to someone in the U.S. I still haven't gotten any update that it's gotten to USPS from DHL so I guess it's on a boat somewhere?

We have family near Chicago and each time we send them a letter or a parcel, it needs 3-5 weeks, and we don't know why it takes so long. A few years ago, it was much faster.

The postcard from Bermuda I got last week took also five weeks.

Ah no, first it was upgraded to double vinyl, later it was downgraded to vinyl again.

Yes, Autumn Leaves seems to be some jazz song.

I would add a footnote with the translation.
Autumn Leaves is a song?
When does she mean with that?

I think Pearl is a really good album. Not a single song to skip. Every song is pretty high standard.

My favourite songs are similar to yours, although I guess you all underrate "Vincent" a bit. It is a very lovely song and probably among my personal top three on the album.

The only weird thing is that when listening to Pearl, I do always think of other female artists. Sometimes I have to think of 90's PJ Harvey or 90's Kristin Hersh, and sometimes Heather sounds or surprises me like 80's Kate Bush. Plus, when Heather sings "sister", I have to think of 80's Annie Lennox. Although I still don't see much connection to Oyster, at least musically, this is a very nice add-on in my opinion. Listening to Pearl make me feel 20-25 years younger.

"US Version In A Gatefold Cardboard Sleeve With A Fold Out Booklet."


Ordered mine on Amazon here in US and yes, it's a cardboard sleeve. Received it yesterday. First impression is rather good, much more melodic and interesting than The Way It Feels.

Thanks! Is it possible to make scans of the album? Especially of the parts that could differ from the European version? For example the backside with the label information? And maybe of the CD?

I hope Cass, this will help you.
Here, Heather is talking about Over The Fields.

“Then there is the sublime “Over the fields”: A true full circle from “Island” on Oyster: “Last year the man I wrote “Island” about [who had abused me] was dying. When I heard that, I reached out to him for the first time in almost 30 years, to say that I forgave him.

“He wrote me an incredible letter of regret and apology for all the pain and suffering he had caused me. I felt there was a kind of closure. After he died, I wrote “Over the fields”; It’s a song of forgiveness and compassion for a troubled soul that never managed to find its way clear in this life; A hope for a second chance the next time round.”

This is what google translate spits out:

"On Oyster was Iceland, a song about how a much older man abused me, and last year I heard from a mutual friend that he was dying, so I decided to give him some nice words and got the most incredible excuse from him. "

But the beginning and end are in Heather's own words:

"There was a song on Oyster called Island, it was a song about.... ... and I got the most incredible letter back from him which was a full apology."

The English->German->English translation is basically the opposite meaning!

Or what do you mean? "Excuse" vs "apology"?

Has anyone tried to transcribe Heather's words? It's really really hard to listen to when the translator speaking over her and the article translating all her words into German.

I think I cannot help you there, I fear, as I barely understand her original words as well.

Most sites are photos and lyrics.
I think there are only seven pages with text apart from the lyrics.

Interview in English by Vents Magazine:
https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/07/09/i ... ock-darling-heather-nova/

Quite standard questions and answers about the new album. Heather's future plans:

Q: Any plans to hit the road?
A: My European tour starts in October, and I hope to come to the US in early 2020. Stay tuned!
Q: What else is happening next in Heather Nova’s world?
A: I play a festival in Europe later this month, and then I’ll be doing promo and rehearsing for my European tour. I’m also doing a lot of painting, and I’m working on re-releasing my book of poems.

Haven't heard for ages, but two things are for sure:

1 - Beautiful Ride (one of my favourite Heather songs ever)
12 - Higher Ground (well, the complete opposite)

You made the mistake other people did as well - ordering the CD, vinyl etc. didn't include the digital version this time, in contrast to 2011 or 2015.

It's also a bit of a drag that nobody on this forum seems to care for the new album very much.

Johan is a bit special, as he likes only melancholic songs. I like Pearl pretty much, it is much better than I was expecting.

Is there in the US still something like a "record store"?

Is the US Pearl different to the European Pearl?

The Merchcowboy campaign, people who supported Heather by pre-ordering the album and buying other things (like the old Pledge campaigns for other albums).

Is it just me, but when I listen to the record, I do also think of PJ Harvey or Kristin Hersh?
