Harriet releases new album “The Outcome”
Her voice and her passion shines brighter than ever on her new album ‘The Outcome’, which is out now. Its release is accompanied by the release of the official video for her single ‘Story of Your Life’.
It’s an ear-worm dance-pop anthem which finds a piano-pounding sweet spot between Coldplay and ABBA.
About the official video, Harriet explains: “This video is how I want everyone to feel when they listen to Story Of Your Life. Happy, uninhibited and free!”
‘The Outcome’ is a sublimely singalong, sweetly melodic, long-in-the-making second album. It’s music in the glorious tradition of the Seventies singer-songwriters that Harriet grew up loving, with her golden voice evoking no less than Karen Carpenter. Harriet meticulously planned numerous sessions in Sweden with handpicked writing collaborators and producers whose credits include everyone from Loreen and Britney Spears to Alicia Keys and Celine Dion.
Harriet says: “I was very young when I made my first record. I put myself in a bit of a box with it and felt quite limited creatively. But this new record, I’ve expressed parts of myself that I didn’t feel perhaps comfortable doing a few years back. There were some emotional writing sessions, quite tearful, because they went to difficult places. ‘The Outcome’ is a bit more vulnerable, but in an empowering way.”
‘Burn’ is a classic singer-songwriter ballad evocative of another Harriet heroine, Carole King. It’s a duet with writer and singer Nikhil D’Souza, a huge figure in the Indian pop and Bollywood worlds. But arguably, Harriet’s best vocal might be on ‘I Think of You’. It’s the moment when your ears might deceive you into believing that this is a great lost Carpenters song.
‘The Outcome’ is Harriet’s hard-fought, hard-won second album where Harriet has found herself, and her voice.
Harriet will take ‘The Outcome’ on a UK headline tour this summer, alongside her full live band.
