“The heart…speaks…in whispers…the heart…speaks…in whispers…and so it’s all over…so they’ve already run…and we all fall down…and the clouds they blot out the sun…very soon your world could be different…(The Skies Will Break)”
Corinne Bailey Rae is back with her new album The Heart Speaks In Whispers. It is a triumphant return full of great lyrics and an evolved sound.
It has been some years since Corinne has released music. In the time she has dealt with great tragedy and found herself having to start over again. The 6 years since The Sea have clearly been full and it is expressed very well in the new album. That old silky, easy listening sound is still there, but there is some experimentation and more developed sound comes through. The songs are about love, strength, overcoming heartbreak, and finding your way in new relationships. It is comparable to her self-titled debut, except with the benefit of greater experience and wisdom. It is as colorful as the cover and as pretty as the woman behind it. There are no collaborations. It is pure, uninterrupted Corinne. What a great blossom for Spring.
The Heart Speaks In Whispers is currently available everywhere. The roll of good music we have had this year continues. Check out the video for The Skies Will Break below:
