Ingrid Michaelson updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@ingridmichaelson) on Saturday (January 10), with word on progress on her apparent quick follow-up to her 2008 album ‘Be OK’. The New York-based indie-pop singer-songwriter tells readers:
My days have consisted of being in the bed and being in the studio. The record has been coming along wonderfully. I already had all the songs written before. And now, we have written all the drum, bass and piano, uke and vocal parts. Next some guitars, strings, horns and other fun instruments. I am enjoying this process very much. It is the first time I have had a full album where every song is a chunk from directly inside me (totally autobiographical). This album is going to be scary to release, and also cathartic. We all write about love don’t we. But love is the thing. It is the thing that will always need the most nurturing and attention. It is the thing that we can taste when it is gone. It is the thing that makes a smile that can not be unsmiled. It is the thing that the world beats to.
So this album will be about love. And the pain of knowing, in Don Henly’s words, that sometimes love just ain’t enough. And I know that you know how that goes and goes.
