Natalie Merchant's new ambitious Leave Your Sleep
It's been seven years since Natalie Merchant's last album (2003's The House Carpenter's Daughter). That's a pretty big gap in albums, but it all makes sense, now that she has revealed the story behind her latest, Leave Your Sleep. It's a research-based project that had Merchant digging into 19th and 20th century poetry about childhood (sometimes composed by children) from America and England. Check out the making of video and pay your respects to this incredible concept album!
