Vanessa Carlton checked in with fans ahead of next week’s release of her debut album ‘Be Not Nobody’. Carlton said, “Hey. It’s 1:15pm on a clock that’s ten minutes fast. I’m tired and dreamy. I have four more days until the official release of an album that is all mine. Actually, on Tuesday the album won’t be mine anymore. It will be yours. That is why musicians make albums; to give it away. I write the songs, but perhaps it is the fans that sing the true melody. I hope that this record is as healing and empowering for you, the listening ears, as it was for me creating it. ‘Be Not Nobody’ is all yours, treat it well for it loves every ear that wants to listen. Much love and peace to my internet peeps. Vanessa.”

I am giddy for an album of my songs will see the light of day in one week, meanwhile, the thought that is ringing in my head right now is ‘my feet are really cold…I need socks’. I’m sitting in my parents living room (that’s where the piano lives) writing a new song and feeling perfectly content in the middle of the night at the edge of a lake. I gotta go find socks now.”
