Watch: Heidi Talbot – The Year That I Was Born

  • September 7, 2016

Heidi Talbot - Here We Go 1, 2, 3Heidi Talbot’s new single The Year That I Was Born is the first single to be released from her upcoming album ‘Here We Go 1, 2, 3’ which is released on the 23rd October. The single is a gorgeous country-pop meditation reflecting on birth and was co-written with Louis Abbott of Scotland’s Admiral Fallow.

Here We Go, 1, 2, 3 explores the tricks and traits of time – the way it passes, rushes, falls back on itself. The way it stops. “The album was written over a couple of years,” Talbot says. “I stopped touring, stopped recording, took some time after having another baby, and sorted everything out in my head a little bit.”

New Release: Heidi Talbot – Here We Go 1, 2, 3

  • July 5, 2016

Heidi Talbot - Here We Go 1, 2, 3Heidi Talbot's fifth solo LP plays to the tune of quiet skips and giant leaps. It crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown, traverses oceans and musical styles – from folk, through Americana, to classic pop, and back again. The Co Kildare singer / songwriter, who now resides in Scotland with her musical partner and husband John McCusker, is joined by a host of musicians and co-writers on the album, including Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Duke Special, Adam Holmes and Boo Hewerdine.

"The title, Here We Go, 1, 2, 3, takes that idea of jumping, whether it's into new musical territories, new bands, a new studio, new label, new family – new everything, really," says Talbot, the recipient of 2008's Indie Acoustic award and multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominations. "It's about taking a chance. I've written eight out of the 10 songs on this album in some context, whether it's the lyrics or the music – that's the most I've ever contributed. And it's quite personal. A lot has happened since my last album. We've built a recording studio, and started a label, and I've got a different band. I've had a second daughter. I've lost my mum. So, it feels like – okay, get ready to jump..." Also: we all need someone to catch us.
