Sara Bareilles checked in with fans on her official web site on Tuesday (June 1), explaining the title of her upcoming album ‘Kaleidoscope Heart’. The American singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m officially announcing the name of the Record!
It’s called: “Kaleidoscope Heart”
(roaring applause and ooohs and aaahs like the audience is looking at a floating pink elephant that speaks Portuguese, please.)
I picked out the name of the record months before I even finished writing the songs. I love the imagery of those words, and they’re really representative of how I envision my heart. It’s a colorful but fragmented, ever-changing sum of all the bits and pieces that make it up. A Kaleidoscope is the tool that helps make sense of the mess. Or at least makes it nice to look at. :)
More importantly I named this record “Kaleidoscope Heart” because, like my last name, people will misspell the sh*t out of it.
There’s beauty in that.
Or at least I remain mildly amused by it.
I hope you like it….
