Honestly....:(

I think the label's gonna drop her.  The album's never gonna come out.  Otherwise, MTV or VH1 or an any other music channel or radio would AT LEAST mention something about Vanessa.  But they didn't.  So that's why I'm not expecting a new album.

:(


 :roll: You're such a pessimist...

Anyway, what I want to know is who changed the thread title? Because it started out as "when will White Houses be released?" so some of the original replies on the first page are referring to WH release date, not Harmonium....so the poll results are a bit off...just thought I'd mention that.

Okay, in all honesty, I am going to disagree with VT.

Vanessa's first album went platinum and she had the # 1 song of 2002. If the record company was smart, they wouldn't drop her. Most of the time, people who have platinum albums and huge hits don't get dropped.

It's A&M you're talking about...and if an artist is not releasing, then the label isn't making money...money talks.

o_O Maybe I'm making the mistake then...I could have sworn it said "White Houses"...and Vulture was commenting on January referring to his earlier idea to "release it when people's houses really are white"?

Let me take you back a bit, to 1998/1999...

Billie Piper was HUGE in England.  She had four #1 hits from the same album.  Then when her second CD came out, she hit another #1 with the first single.  The second single reached the top 5 in the UK charts.  Then the third single basically flopped.  What happens? The label drops her.  I am really not trying to be negative, but look at the facts.  This has also happened to Vitamin C--her first label dropped her, she joined V2 Records and then they dropped her as well after only releasing one song.  Despite the fact that her debut album spawned three hit singles.  

And how can I forget about lovely Mandy Moore? Her first three albums sold well considering the fact that she was the last of the 'pop princess' crew.  When Coverage flopped (and don't say it didn't flop, Joey, cuz it did), Sony dropped her (even though she wants people to think she 'left' them).  

My point is, no matter how popular a song/album is, things happen.  Record labels are really stupid sometimes.

I'm not trying to be pessimistic.

I hear yea...here's a clip of Patty's bio from pattygriffin.net

Quote from: "pattygriffin.net"
In early 2000, Patty went back into the studio to record "Silver Bell" which was to be released in September of 2000. She joined the Dixie Chicks on their "Fly" tour where she performed with her band. Concert goers received a 5 track promo CD for Silver Bell which had the following tracks:

1.   Let Him Fly ("Living with Ghosts" version)
2.   Tony ("Flaming Red" version)
3.   Silver Bell (brand new from "Silver Bell")
4.   Standing (brand new from "Silver Bell")
5.   Mary (recorded live at the Mint in L.A.)

Devoted fans waited and waited and September came and went. Word on the street was that the album's release date had just been pushed back. Unfortunately, in the Spring of 2001, Patty was dropped from her label, Interscope. As a result, "Silver Bell" never saw the light of day. Check out this article from the Nashville Rage to learn more.


It's a sad reality...and the only song ever played by Nessa anymore is ATM and it's been 2 years...she's almost forgotten...I don't care if you (the NESSAholics) want to except it or not...

Yup, its a really scary possibility. She says her label 'have been really good to her' but for how long? Ultimately their job is still to make money. Its just stupid pushing it back further and further, is 'perfection' worth sacraficing a career for? I don't think so.

Well, I really doubt that it's her decision to push it back. She said in her last post that she was finished, and loved the way Harmonium sounded, so it would have to just be something at the marketing level. Right now I'm thinking A) random marketing stuff B) miscalculation as to when things can really be packaged and released etc. C) A&M heard the album and went  8O no no no and now they're discussing that...

I think that A) is the most likely reason, or perhaps a combination of A and B.

Ok, I just HAD to bring this back...
For about a month or so, I was pretty sure that October would be the month of Harmonium... now I'm starting to have my serious doubts, after the "rumor".
