Imogen Heap Announces 'Heapsong 6'

Grammy and Ivor Novello award winning artist, producer, song-writer, multi-instrumentalist and innovator Imogen Heap is set to release 'Heapsong 6', a track which marks the midway point of her forth solo studio album which she began on March 14th last year.

With typical game changing flair, Imogen is writing, recording and releasing the songs as she goes along. Affectionately referred to as 'Heapsongs', five tracks have been released so far - including the world's first 3D song, a crowd inspired track, collaborations in India and China and a song connected with a project reviving a local walled garden.

Now comes 'Heapsong 6', an as-of-yet untitled track (Heapsong 1-5 have now all received tites) which will see a release on 22nd April - Earth Day. The song will be performed live at an event held in the grounds of her elliptical home, and will be filmed and broadcast live on Facebook by FANetwork TV. The film will then become the promo video for the song - a live, one take solo musical performance and video shoot.

To tie in with Earth Day, the whole event (including rehearsals) will be powered "off the grid", with the best available energy mix they have been able to source locally. This will include friends and fans on bicycles, who will be powering the lights! So the only reason you’ll be able to ‘see’ anything on the stream is because they’ll be sweating it out.

You can find out more by visiting Imogen's website here. The full album 'Heapsongs' is set for a September release.

Ed Sheeran’s fourth studio album takes its title from an EP he made eight years ago, pre-superstardom.

‘III’, Banks’ appropriately titled third album, has been a short while in the making but feels like the culmination of the songwriter’s more ambitious work to this point. Five years since the release of her debut LP 'Goddess' the LA artist has shifted direction within her sound, infusing her synth-heavy trip-pop aesthetic with a jaded sense of heartbreak, maturity and raw passion.
