Imogen Heap - Sparks (New CD)
2014 release, the fourth album from the Grammy and Ivor Novello award winning recording artist. SPARKS has been on a well-travelled journey, one which Heap began at 6am 14 March 2011, with a live stream from her home studio in a small village on the outskirts of London, gathering 'sound seeds' from fans and weaving them together to form the first song ('Lifeline'). 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.'
