For those fans who simply cannot wait for her forthcoming new album, British recording artist and two time Grammy nominee IMOGEN HEAP will make a brand new track available exclusively through iTunes on July 8th, 2008. The aptly-named track “Not Now But Soon” currently appears on the album “Heroes: Original Television Series Soundtrack”, which is out now. The track will be made available through iTunes accompanied by a bonus ‘making of the song’ video.
Video footage documenting the writing, recording and production of her music has proved popular with her fans recently. Scoring significant breakthrough success with her last album, “Speak For Yourself”, which sold over half a million copies worldwide, Imogen recently launched a vBlog, which can be found at http://www.youtube.com/IMOGENHEAP, or linked to via her website: http://www.imogenheap.com .The vBlog features regular video diary entries which allow fans to follow Imogen’s progress in writing and recording her untitled forthcoming album.
Having written and recorded music for over a decade both solo and as one half of Frou Frou, Imogen’s success around 2005’s “Speak For Yourself” could be largely attributed to being at the forefront of the online explosion, leading the UK’s The Guardian to call her “the first download diva”. Significantly boosted by the Myspace generation, she still maintains one of the biggest profiles on Myspace.
Imogen’s new album is being recorded in a beautiful new studio which she has built in her old family home in Essex. She has spent the time in between writing, recording and producing her brand new album and building her own recording studio, documenting the entire process for the ”making of DVD” to accompany the audio CD of the new album.
