Planning ahead! Imogen Heap will release her fourth solo album Sparks on March 4, 2014 through RCA Records. But she requires your help NOW.
Heap has asked her fans to accompany her in completing the final leg of her new album Sparks. Those who pre-order the limited edition deluxe box set are asked to send in their footprints, which will be used to create the album cover. This strictly limited edition deluxe box will be available a week earlier than the standard releases, meaning it will be available on February 25, 2014.
Designed and developed over the past two years by Imogen and her creative team with CSV (the company behind Radiohead's special packaging), it will be the very first time that Imogen has released a deluxe package. The pre-order is open now until September 30. So don't waste any more time. Pre-order! HURRY!
The submitted footprints will also be a part of a "special ticket" which will be included within the deluxe box set. This ticket is made from a one-of-a-kind blended paper containing various items that Imogen has used in the physical recording of the songs for the album.
In addition, the ticket will give fans access to one of the sound checks on her world tour where they will get to meet Imogen in person and see her rehearsing and setting up before the show. To find out more about the deluxe box set and to make a pre-order please visit imogenheap.com/deluxeboxset.
Still with us? Good!
Says Heap, "The album began with someone sending in the sound of striking a match for what became Lifeline in March 2011. I then dived into the most immense, intense creative two-and-a-half years of my life that took me all over the planet, collaborating on so many projects with so many people and often totally spontaneously. The album is then in some ways for me grounded with fans' footprints bringing the finishing touch for the album art, as so many of them came along for the ride."
Sparks will be available in two CD formats - a standard edition and a double-disc casebound edition with instrumental versions of all tracks.
The deluxe package will contain 12 individual CDs, the album on CD, 14 HD music videos, plus videos documenting the making of each song and the entire album, a double 10" vinyl album, a special deck of playing cards which unlock exclusive web content and a 120-page coffee-table-style book telling the story of Sparks along with the special ticket of blended items.
