Three months ago, Vanessa Carlton entered the studio to begin recording her 6th album, the followup to her 2015 album, Liberman. Now, after just one short season, Vanessa is done recording and has moved onto the mixing stage! See her announcement below:
During the early weeks of recording, Vanessa shared a handful of behind-the-scenes updates from in the studio. These are all from the initial tracking phase, between January 23rd and February 4th.
While recording the album, Vanessa worked with Dave Fridmann, Mike Fridmann, Adam Landry, and Patrick Hallahan. They finished tracking on February 4th. They are likely involved in mixing it, too.
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.” 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.
Vanessa’s upcoming 6th album is due later this year. Now that it’s in the mixing phase, it shouldn’t be too long until it’s mastered and done. After that, fans will likely have to wait only a few months before we hear the first single. It will be exciting to hear where Vanessa’s music takes us next!
Get ready to hear new Vanessa Carlton in just a few more months. There will be plenty of exciting things to come as she finishes mixing and then mastering the album. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest music news.
