some GREAT news about the second single!
« on: November 12, 2007, 01:55:43 am »
Multiplatinum recording star Vanessa Carlton is getting critical acclaim for a record she collaborated on with Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind, her former boyfriend. That sounds like a bittersweet victory, but she insists it's not like that.

"We're still friends and so very proud of this record because it's our child," says Carlton of her new Heroes and Thieves album. "I think this record was the whole reason we were together in the first place. In some ways, it was like the music was always most important, and in the end, that's probably why we evolved into being friends."

The singer/songwriter/pianist says The Inc./Universal Motown Records' release is her most introspective work yet.

"I'm 27 now, and the past year for me has brought up a lot of questions that come from evolving into a real woman, and the theme of the album is deciphering the heroes from the thieves in a very black-and-white way: What kind of life do I want to lead and carve out for myself? What kind of characters do I want to surround myself with?"

She adds, "I call my songs chapters, and the last chapter, More than This, talks about: What if we could declare right now that I don't need any more than I have - the person sitting next to me, the shoes on my feet, my dog, my career? If I just kind of declare that, in theory, I would experience this bliss. . . . Every song on the album involves those kinds of things."

Carlton just headed out on a limited four-week promo tour. She plans to "shoot the video for the second single Hands on Me in December, then next year, I'll take the band out and do a bigger tour."

cool, thanks for posting!

Another tour with a band sounds great, can't wait!

This is a great interview, i love how she describe More Than This and I like this blurb about evolving and now having to determine who the heroes and thieves are.  I like her mentioning things being black-and-white, that is very much how i see things and choosing the people I want to be around based on who *I* want to be.  Cool :)

The video should visualise the song though. A video exchange, a subway. Maybe a cruise.. no no just kidding.
But some constellations, or her having a picknick and watching the stars lol.

Some lil' kids chanting 'nanana' would be nice.. and a big bald guy.

Some accurate storyline, dark and telling.

Yay, I'm really pleased.

I get the feeling that Nolita Fairytale was never meant to be a big success. It was an internet only release and though it was promoted quite well, it could have had more and was released well before the album came out. I think it's purpose was just to get her face out there a bit more, because it's been so long since she was properly in the public eye. Preparation for the main event, sort of. Now when HOM comes out, which I think is the best "single" on the album, it'll have a bigger push.

I hope bigger tour means the UK too!
