Music Spotlight: Imogen Heap

Am I the only one that expected her to be hotter?

Am I the only one that expected her to be hotter?

Imogen Heap is a rather strange choice for a music spotlight since it’s been a while since she’s released anything major and there doesn’t seem to be anything on the horizon (more on that later). BUT, I was just able to get one of my all-time favorite Imogen tracks in a non-DRM format, so I needed an excuse to share it with you all.

Imogen is no stranger to lending her songs – original or otherwise – to compilation albums and if you only own “i Megaphone” or “Speak For Yourself,” here are some gems that definitely should be part of your collection.

“Glittering Clouds (Locusts)” is a great high-energy track full of building momentum and Imogen’s signature sound. It was tucked away on a compilation/conceptĀ  album in which each track is written about a different Biblical plague. (Random, I know). Imogen’s track is the clear stand-out on the album and it’s absolutely worth downloading.

Another great track you may have missed is the song she wrote for the first ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ soundtrack. (Random, I know). Again: signature sound, very beautiful, and surprisingly good considering she wrote just for a movie.

Can’t Take It In (from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe)

“Not Now But Soon” was also written for a specific purpose: the Heroes TV soundtrack. Imogen also released it as a single and there was speculation that it would serve as the lead single for her frequently delayed new album, but that no longer appears to be the case: Direct Current Music reported on March 12 that the new album has a internal release date at RCA of July 14 with the lead single being the yet-unheard track “Canvas.”

Not Now But Soon

Enjoy!

  1. person person says:

    i think she’s plenty hot, asshole.

  2. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
