Nova, Heather - Pearl -Digi-
Releasedatum: 28 juni 2019
25 years after her chart-topping breakout album Oyster, Heather Nova is back with a tour de force of an album that threatens to knock Oyster off the block as her fans’ all time favourite. She’s managed to make another raw, beautiful, passionate piece of rock music, that no one can deny shows she is unexpectedly now at her peak. Who says rock n roll is only for the young?
There have been 8 studio albums in-between; all of them critically acclaimed, and many of them charting. She has toured consistently in those intervening years, maintaining a loyal
fanbase; has played every major European festival, as well as intimate acoustic gigs in churches and opera houses, has had her music featured in major TV shows and Hollywood
films, released a volume of her poetry and drawings, and has even been known to show up and play free at hospitals in between tour dates.
Pearl, an album of 11 outstanding songs, recorded in Youth’s studio in the mountains of
Spain, willn be released in June 2019.
“I didn’t plan to release an album on the 25th anniversary of Oyster. It just worked out that way. When I was ready to record a new album, I thought it would be cool to have Youth produce one or two of the songs, to revisit the vibe and sound we created back then. (Youth produced “Oyster”) I sent him my demos so that he could choose one or two. The message I got back was “Really beautiful .... I’d love to do them all ...can see the connection to Oyster, but the songs are better! Much stronger ..deeper insights ....still vulnerable but from a position of strength, Woah - I’m in!”. We discussed going back to a
similar sound, while still keeping the record contemporary too. I think that, just naturally, the combination of each of our innate sensibilities once again came to- gether to create that unique sound we got on Oyster. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
“A pearl is hopefully what forms inside an Oyster after all the years, the accumulation of
experience, the saltwater, the sand.”
Heather’s new album is indeed a Pearl. Don’t miss it!
