On the German radio station Deutschlandfunk (DLF), there will be a portrait of Heather on January 12, 2020, 15:05h - 16:00h. The show is called "Rock et cetera".

Rock et cetera - Ach neige, Du Schmerzensreiche! Die seelentröstenden Gesänge der Heather Nova
Von Fabian Elsäßer
Singt eine junge Frau von Schmerz und Sehnsucht, lautete früher der Konsens der maskulin dominierten Musikpresse reflexhaft: schutzlos und zerbrechlich. Heather Nova ereilten diese Zuschreibungen schon früh in ihrer Karriere, mochten die E-Gitarren noch so zornig an ihren Songs zerren. Doch auch im Falle der in der Tat zierlichen Singer-Songwriterin von den Bermudas steckt im Klischee etwas Wahrheit. Ihre besten Texte und Lieder seien meistens in Lebensphasen entstanden, in denen es ihr nicht gut ging, hat Heather Nova einmal erklärt. Aber Trauer beinhalte für sie eben auch Hoffnung. Diese Haltung verbindet frühe Erfolgsalben wie ,Oyster’ von 1994 nahtlos mit dem 2019 erschienenen ,Pearl’.

The transcript is already online (mostly in German):

Deutschlandfunk

The author knows Heather's career well, but there are some mistakes in the transcript. For example the author mentions that "Gloomy Sunday" is the only song from "South" that Heather still plays regularily. That's nonsense, this is definitely "Like Lovers Do". But it is a good overview for people who didn't know Heather yet.

Funny they made a mistake.

Instead of "Every Soldier Is A Mother's Son" (as written in the transcript) they played "Out On A Limb"...
