New Leona Naess :: “Heavy Like Sunday”

I love the aching and honest timbre to Leona Naess‘ luminous voice, combined with her fearless lyrics and incisive wit. We’ve been waiting, oh, forever for her new album Thirteens to come out. News on the street is that it is still forthcoming through the label Polydor, but no exact date.

While we anticipate the full LP (and kick around possible track inclusions), Leona is releasing a single called “Heavy Like Sunday” through the performance night-cum-record label Blue Flowers on June 2. This release is a limited edition of 500 on 7″ vinyl, and each one comes with an individual polaroid taken by Leona. She’s also made a charmingly lo-fi video of herself singing her heart out while sitting on her piano, her balcony, and then all over London (back of a bus, flower market, overlooking the ferris wheel). Sounds good to me.

HEAVY LIKE SUNDAY – LEONA NAESS

Londoners — there is a gig on June 5th to celebrate the release of the single. That’ll be at Soho Revue Bar, 11 Walkers Court, Brewer Street, W1F 0ED.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
