Secret City Records is pleased as punch to announce that we’ll be the Canadian home for the sophomore offering from Basia Bulat. Entitled Heart Of My Own, the album will be released on January 26, 2010.
Basia’s 2007’s debut, Oh, My Darling, was a success both at home and on the international scene, garnering a Polaris Prize nomination, and praise from outlets like NPR, who labeled “In the Night” as “one of 2008’s great singles,” citing Bulat’s “graceful effervescence and … innate understanding of momentum.”
Like its predecessor, Heart of My Own was produced by Howard Bilerman at Hotel2Tango in Montreal, but it’s a decidedly more eclectic record in terms of the songwriting and instrumentation. “I think it is at times extremely sparse and, well, spacious, with big choirs singing,” Bulat says, “and then it gets really dense with really spirited and rolling drums.”
And you can hear one of those spirited songs right now, right here.
Basia has a few select Canadian dates upcoming, but expect lots more announcements in the weeks and months to come.
