Vanessa Carlton has announced her SIXTH studio album Love Is An Art and we are SO excited to hear what this talented musician has in store for us!
Love Is An Art, produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Flaming Lips), delves into the eternal seesaw that is human connection. The push and pull and finding a balance that the constantly evolving nature of love consists of. With its expectations and compassion that Carlton analyzes from all angles. Love Is An Art, from romantic, to parental, to the friends that hold us up and the leaders that repeatedly let us down.
“Love is the energy you put out into the world,” says Carlton, who was inspired in part by the 1956 book The Art of Loving by philosopher Erich Fromm, and by stories and struggles both in her inner world and the world around her. “And it can be so incredibly messy at times.”
“This record is about being out of my comfort zone,” says Carlton. “What’s going to happen when we do things that people assume are not naturally a match, like working with Dave Fridmann? I loved the idea of working with someone who’s known for a palette that isn’t associated with me, but it was a fit the second we started working together. Or what could happen when I sit with another writer and just collaborate?”
What came from this is an extremely dynamic LP filled to the brim with beautiful melodies and haunting phrases as well as experimental constructions. It contains super high highs and super low lows; emotions that are completely relatable in the world of love.
