Vanessa Carlton’s Christmas gift to us this year is an announcement we’ve all been waiting for: On January 23rd, Vanessa will begin recording her upcoming 6th album! It will serve as the follow-up to her 2015 album, Liberman. Since then, Vanessa also released a few special albums and EPs. We got Liberman Live in 2016, followed by the Earlier Things Live EP in 2017. Then last year, Vanessa released six covers; you can now get them all in one package on vinyl.
With album production slated to start at the beginning of 2019, we expect we’ll get to hear the new music before the year is over.
Check out Vanessa’s album announcement below:
For those of you who have been wondering what I’ve been up to…..I’ve been Hefnering for many days. However, I enter into the studio to record a new album January 23rd. Be sure to follow if you wish to receive no updates. Happy Holidays stressballs! X
In 2017, Vanessa revealed she was working on a new album, performing its potential title track, “Love Is An Art,” for lucky fans. In an interview with The Cut last summer, Vanessa spoke a bit more about the album, revealing that it’s “partially inspired by Michael Pollan’s new book How to Change Your Mind. The concept came about a few years ago, based on a collaboration with indie music producer Dave Fridmann.”
Doing covers is a way, as a musician, to see A) where your head’s at, because how are you going to interpret this? It’s like a mirror. And then B) it’s also a place where you can experiment and try different sounds.
Vanessa Carlton’s last album, Liberman, came out in fall 2015. It launched stunning singles like “Blue Pool,” “Operator,” “House Of Seven Swords,” and “Nothing Where Something Used To Be.” It will be exciting to hear where Vanessa’s music takes us next!
Get ready for new Vanessa Carlton music in 2019. She’ll begin recording in just a few weeks, and we’ll keep you updated on her studio progress for album #6. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest music news.
