Lavender Diamond – “Everybody’s Heart’s Breaking Now”
Next month, Becky Stark’s Lavender Diamond project returns with Incorruptible Heart, her first album under that name since 2007’s Imagine Our Love. Back in June, she shared the new song “Oh My Beautiful World,” and now she’s followed it up with a gorgeously understated ballad called “Everybody’s Heart’s Breaking Now.” This is a good one, everybody — it builds so slowly and assuredly that you barely notice, and Stark’s voice goes into wistful overdrive without ever turning into a multiple-octave bazooka. Listen below.
Incorruptible Heart is out 9/25 on Paracadute.
