... she said something like Pearl being like Oyster (same producer, same sound) ut even better because containing better songs.

The explanation is simple : she wrote most of the songs at the beginning of a great relationship, when she was happy as can be, she started arranging the songs with her boyfriend (in the best circumstances possible), she recorded the album with her boyfriend and other people she likes very much. She spent an amazing time, and thus is very enthusiastic.

Personally, I have mixed feelings : I can enjoy listening to the album for its global sound, for its electric guitar, and for being able to listen almost as a whole (I only skip Experts), I like some songs a lot, Rewild Me, Some Things, and I like some others (Over The Fields, All The Rivers), but if I try to make my Heather top 20 songs, there will probably be no Pearl. Unless we classify liver versions, and the tour is so great that we adore live versions, of course.


That is why I still put Pearl higher than my less liked albums (the general sound is fine), but neither in my favorite ones (there are no amazing songs). IMO, of course.

In 2011 and 2015, Heather collected money on Pledgemusic, helping her to record her two albums 300 Days At Sea and The Way It Feels.

I'm glad she hasn't chosen to stay at Pledgemusic for her recent album, because in the last months Pledgemusic went offline, went into bankruptcy proceedings, and owed artists hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments, preventing them from fulfilling pledges to fans, according to newspaper reports:

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. My top 4:

Excellent:
See Yourself
Vincent
Some Things Just Come Undone

Very Good:
Rewild Me

I'm very pleased with the album! Those four songs are pure beauty.
Especially See Yourself is most impressive and amazing.

Cause when you're broken, then you're open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are light,
And it's alright, and it's alright,
And it's alright.

I like See Yourself as well, at least for its music ; lyrically, I admit I'm not font of the "when you're broken it's alright" thing.

I quite or really like every song you mention, but I think I could easily find 20 HN songs from previous albums that I prefer. Well, I speak for now. I didn't spoil myself by listening to the recording, but I might change my mind after hearing Berit playing Rewild Me.

Thank you Bernd!

HR1 is a free Radio program that you can listen in the entire world I think as MP3 stream.

This page is in german but might help you to test out the streaming through Internet. Well try it out if you want to listen live. https://www.hr1.de/service/livestream,livestream-114.html

It makes totally sense if she comes the long way from Bermuda to do lots of promotional sessions and not a single one like just HR1. I think we need to find out where else and how we can listen to it. Thanks again Bernd for this hint.

She just played "The Wounds We Bled", accompanied by Midori Jaeger on cello. Very beautiful. Too bad they misspelt her name in an insert, though ("Noca").

There was a 5 minutes interview about 70 minutes before playing live at Moma (German 3.5 hours Morning Magazin on TV), so maybe 6:35 local time I think.

Truth And Bone
The Wounds We Bled
Storm
Don't Stop Believing
Walk This World
Island

Interesting and new to me, that she saw Tori live back in her very early days.
And it was nice and new as well to me to hear All the rivers in this stripped down version, though the song shines better in the album version, imho. Not fond of this cover song, but i guess Heather made the best out of it.

"Lots of live sessions"

I know HR1 (live session + interview), ARD Moma (one live song + interview), and Brisant (short interview). But no info yet what she did for SWR3 and WDR4. We should check both programs in the next weeks!

Bernd, scroll down here https://www1.wdr.de/radio/wdr4/program ... ungen/songpoeten-100.html and you’ll see, that The wounds we bled was played in the broadcast "WDR 4 – Songpoeten" on the 20th of August. No idea, if there was an interview as well or so. I haven’t checked any further.

Thanks, I had seen this already, but I doubt this was a live session. Also she was August 20 at Philadelphia and London Heathrow airports. Cannot think she comes on the same day in a Cologne studio for singing one song.

She was also in Mainz at a television studio!

I just got the new Lana Del Rey cd and I'm already addicted to it ! What a difference to Pearl, I have to force myself to listen to it and still don't like it... I listened to Oyster from 1994 to 1996 every evening, what a difference, too sad.

This is sad, but Pearl is not bad, I like it a lot. For example See Yourself is pure genius to me. I guess the problem is that you prefer dark, melancholic music. I never did that. Tastes do luckily vary.

Maybe my expectations were set too high when Heather called Pearl, Oyster II.

I recently asked Porgy & Bess in Vienna, the location where Heather will perform in Vienna, in regards to a support act. They told me that the local presenter Barracuda Music hasn't planned a support act so far.

Thanks for the video links Bernd. Great it could be downloaded. Seams like Heather is already in Europe doing promotion again before the tour starts.

She looks tanned on the video. Well yes she posted to get Vitamin D and Vitamin Sea on Instagram.

I totally love this wording Vitamin Sea! The Sea is good for your health and soul like no other Vitamin can do really do.
Well just my thought.

I'm sure the two videos were produced on August 23 already in Mainz at SWR1 studios, the day after she was at MoMa and in HR1 studios. She wears exactly the same clothes and sunglasses.

NDR Info portrait about Heather from yesterday evening:
NDR Info

Unfortunately it contained nothing new, music only from CD, no interview, just a few statements from Heather about Pearl that were very similar to the press releases.
Interesting only for people who never heard of Heather before.
