Imogen Heap + Love the Earth

Posted in Imogen Heap, inspirational music with tags , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by jason elijah

Earlier today in London, Imogen Heap performed a concert at the Royal Albert Hall which opened with the debut of a series of orchestral pieces she composed to accompany a video titled “Love the Earth.” You can watch the “Love the Earth” orchestra/video section below, or just listen (mp3). The entire show is available for viewing here.



In this clip, Imogen Heap talks about the Love the Earth project:

Imogen Heap at Glastonbury

Imogen Heap performed at the Glastonbury Festival recently, and the set included an a capella version of her song “Earth” (one of my favorites) which you can see below. Or download the show (.avi format) here.

“Earth” lyrics by Imogen Heap

You’re not golden
I’m getting tired
Act like you own the place
When really you’ve only just arrived

I caught first glimmers
In hides and skins
Look who’s all grown up
Black swanning about the solar winds

You’re gonna lose it all
And find yourself on your knees
So, get a grip and you might
Flow, reverse the great, slow bleed

I’ve tried patience, but
You always want a war
This house won’t tolerate any more

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

The cold shoulder
Folded arms and looking up
You’ve never listened
And carry on careless, regardless

This is not a fire drill and
If we hold any hope
It’s harmonic connection
And stereos in biosis

These Legoland empires
Choking out mine now
You’re everywhere, everywhere
Multiplying around me, child

A strain on my heart
This rock can’t tolerate any more

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

Baby, behave, we’ll make it work…

You’re only what you give back…

Imogen Heap on Letterman

After seeing Imogen Heap perform “First Train Home” on Letterman last night, I am intrigued. Her new album, Ellipse, is beautiful. I didn’t expect something amazing, but was pleasantly surprised, and now it’s always playing. To top it off, this performance is really great, so check it out (or save the mp4 & mp3)…
