Ingrid Michaelson will release her eagerly-awaited fourth album Human Again Jan. 24 on Cabin 24 Records/Mom+Pop Music. Fans can download the debut single, "Ghost," on iTunes and Amazon now.
Human Again is a triumph in aural range, the music veers from orchestral to percussive, while her accompanying voice swells from contralto to soprano. These darker, impassioned songs plumb the breadth of human emotion and throw a wrench in Michaelson's reputation as the crafter of dainty love songs. One of the most gutting is the album's first single, "Ghost," a hushed reflection on lost romance that unfurls ruefully from its opening line.
"The album is called Human Again because it's taken me a very long time to be happy," explained Michaelson. "The music on this album might surprise some people. I was really singing out, physically; I was writing about a really dark time in my life."
Eager fans quickly sold out Ingrid's 5th annual "Holiday Hop" during the fan club presale earlier this month. The annual holiday-themed concert, which has received rave reviews, will be held on Dec. 10 at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg. Later this month Ingrid will fulfill a lifelong dream when she performs on the 85th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade airing live on NBC.
Michaelson's music, often about love and relationships, has wafted out of televisions across the world in handfuls of Grey's Anatomy episodes (not to mention countless other series since such as American Idol, Parenthood, and So You Think You Can Dance), in an affecting Google Chrome ad, on VH1 as an artist "You Outta Know" and, most recently, the trailer for the award-winning film Like Crazy.
