I agree it works better as a piece of work rather than individual snippets. Iím not going to be playing it to death but itís a nice mood piece, ideal for a glass or two of wine on the sofa or in the bath.

The album went Top 20 in Germany.

Looking forward to listening later. Waiting on the vinyl to be ordered but Amazon have put it in my digital library too as I bought the vinyl from them which was handy. Can also stream it too.

Yeah I saw her Instagram pics, thrilled she got to play in front of 25,000 people. Iím interested to hear what the set list was.

You can cover any song released in the public domain, you just canít sample the original without permission.

I wish that there was somewhere to preorder the album which ships from the UK. Shipping from Germany is a ridiculous price. I know I should be more patient.

The new album cover looks very ďsignableĒ. Iím surprised Heather is not doing limited edition signed versions. I know Iíd buy two vinyls if so, one regular to play, one signed to frame.

Cheers. Iím hanging on for UK sites as if I get free delivery on the vinyl that frees up the postage costs elsewhere to be used for buying the cd too. Savvy!

Do we have an indication of when this will be up for preorder elsewhere? Itís not the project that has excited me most of hers (same for any covers album) by any stretch but I fancy getting the vinyl for this release.

Yeah loads of bands and artists offer a download code with the vinyl. Here it can also help with chart eligibility as you often see bands urging fans who bought the vinyl to use their download code for it to count towards the charts.

Is it just a manufacturing issue that is resulting in this being an August release? Itís not that usual to have such a long wait after an official announcement.

I actually liked this way more than I expected. Her voice is particularly beautiful in the choruses.

PS: How narrow minded to think she should change the gender reference.

The album is a solid effort, improves with each listen. For me the stand out tracks are Rewild Me, Some Things Just Come Undone and See Yourself. If I had to drop a track After All This Time is the one that makes my finger hover over the next button.

This is easily the weakest most boring Heather Nova album for me. Some of the songs are good on their own but sitting through the whole album is a real chore. Out In New Mexico is probably the best track. Every Soldier Is A Motherís Son has a good melody but is let down by dreadful lyrics. I find her voice too shrill on this album (she is an amazing singer generally) I feel like taking two Ibuprofen after it.

Youíre all being very literal about the ďfirst nameĒ thing. In English itís very clear sheís referring to a lover/partner by their name for the first time publicly in song.

Anyhow I like the record, though it would be mid table in the Heather Nova pecking order for me at the moment. Iím glad to see itís charting in some countries and making some of her investment back.

Some Things Just Come Undone is my favourite track though I was expecting a darker lyric to accompany the menacing sounding cellos.

Iím going to preorder the cd even if itís likely to be cheaper in general sale come May but happy to do a bit to support this project. Is that the final Tshirt design? Might just do a cd/tshirt combo.

I wonder what kind of numbers this record has sold having heard Heather commenting on how hard it is for musicians to make any money from records these days. I guess the money is in touring so I hope the returns are strong enough for indie artists like Heather to keep working on new music and making a good living.

Good interview, I don't think she seemed in a bad mood as someone suggested, apart from maybe when asked the question about The Archaeologist. I just don't think she ever comes across that warmly in interviews which is fine, perhaps she's just a naturally reserved person and puts it all out there in her lyrics instead.

Shame she has distanced herself from Virus of the Mind these days. It's by no means in my personal Heather Top 30 but sometimes a bit of a bop like that track is fun amongst all the acoustic stuff at a live gig!

So 'Lie Down In The Bed You Made' is the latest promo single. It's a 2 track release. What do we think of the Whistle Back remix, I'm enjoying the light electronica feel to it though I of course love the original too.

For whoever was asking a single these days is just the track that gets sent out to radio in the hope the stations will pick it up and play it and thus promote the album a bit. 'Girl On The Mountain' is probably the best track for this purpose I'd say.

I do miss proper physical singles of yesteryear which came with b sides and bonus tracks.

Four part interview regarding the new album at link below. I sense Heather was a little frustrated here and there with the interviewer.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnstwSj5KUc

I've only played the new album three times so far due to time constraints and it's a record I want to sit properly with.

I'm loving the vibe to the record, and sonically it's like a relative of 'Storm' to my ears. Girl On The Mountain, Lie Down In The Bed You Made and On My Radar are my early favourites though no doubt this will change. I didn't realise so many people didn't know that Lie Down In The Bed You Made is a saying rather than a literal command

Thanks for that. Unusual for her to be so candid in an interview but it's honest and makes an interesting backdrop to the album listening experience.

In response to the has she ever had a standout single the answer for the UK is yes. 'I'm No Angel' got the biggest push, it was on 2x cd single plus on the Radio 2 playlist. 'Virus Of The Mind' also got promotion as a single but to a lesser extent after 'I'm No Angel' didn't commercially do as well as hoped. 'London Rain' was alos a 2 x cd single release but not as marketed as those two 'South' singles.

Listened to the iTunes snippets and of course the album should only be judged listening to as a whole piece but I'm not instilled with a hell of a lot of excitement for it. That will probably change. It sounds a little too close to MOR for me. I thought she got her mojo back on '300 Days...'

I missed the painting. I love her art and would have been interested in buying a piece for my new apartment. Does anyone know how Heather the Painter works? Is she open to having a piece of work commissioned to her?

Happy enough with the winner. Stay would have been a rather bland choice, works as an album track but definitely not a highlight of the album for me.

Beautiful Ride by far. Enjoy the lyrics, it's a bit anthemic too. Stay's a good enough track too but I'm really shocked it's reached the final two.

Two of my favourites on the album, and much better than the other semi finalists, but I had to go with DSTSY - I just find it a little more interesting and leftfield musically though Beautiful Ride is so anthemic I feel bad for voting against it.

The only covers on the album are the bonus live tracks included on the deluxe edition. The other 14 tracks are all originals. 'All Bets Are Off', 'Grace' and 'History Boys' are all gorgeous songs. I think the best work she did last year was on the limited edition e.p. 'Yes, December' which she released just before Christmas.

If I'd done an album rank these two songs would be near the bottom but I voted for 'Stay' simply because I'm enjoying the greater instrumentation on this album. Neither should be in the final though.

I think you're being a little too literal in your interpretation of the touring comment Johan ;)

Anyhow, it was great if a little random to see Heather appear on one of the main tv channels in the UK again. I hope it translates into some sales for her.
