We're Excited! See the track listing, and hear the title track.
Vanessa Carlton will release her Blue Pool EP on July 24.
The EP features four tracks written for the upcoming full length album Liberman, out in October and which was named after a colorful oil painting by her grandfather Alan J. Lee, who was originally named "Liberman."
Way cool. It is steeped in Carlton's personal history.
Here are three reasons were are way stoked about new VC!
• "This whole album is pared down and minimalist," the singer said. We can get down with that.
• The EP features the songs "Take It Easy" and "Blue Pool," which will be found on the upcoming album, as well as live living room sessions of "Operator" and "Nothing Where Something Used to Be." A complete catalog of the "Living Room Sessions" will be available on a deluxe version of the album in October.
• These tracks reflect Vanessa's current state of mind since moving from NYC to Nashville, marrying husband John McCauley (Deer Tick) and having a baby girl. The simple instrumentation mixed with her wistful vocals and poignant lyrics bring you into her world and showcase a new side to this accomplished songwriter! So it is inspired by her LIFE, both her past (as in her grandfather and his painting) and her now (as in her daughter and her music!)
