Liv Kristine Of Leaves' Eyes To Release New Solo Album "Skintight"

Leave's Eyes vocalist Liv Kristine has issued the following update about releasing a new solo album:

"Dear Fans & Friends, my up-coming album 'Skintight' is on its way to you! In January, the production at Mastersound Studio was completed and the artwork finished by Stefan Heilemann. It has been a fantastic experience to evolve during the recording process. Tori Amos gave me a lot of inspiration in the way she records her songs. My main aim is to release an album which goes directly under your skin, and into your hearts. Being authentic, but perhaps not flawless, is the philosophy I follow artistically. It is not necessary to tune and shape a singing voice when it comes from the heart, from deep within. This is why I chose the title 'Skintight.'

"Most recordings were done 'in one go,' i.e. record a complete song without breaks. Moreover, we've kept and paid attention to the natural processes which take place during singing, like breathing, movements of the lips, emotional expression and strength etc. All this makes the album authentic, real, and direct. The music is played with only a few, however, original instruments. A very down to earth album, and absolutely 'real,' like as if you were sitting next to me and I would sing a song to you. All songs have been written by Torsten Bauer, and myself. Alexander Krull produced the album. My lyrics tell about my childhood ('One of Them,' 'Wonders'), and my observations of the fast, cold, superficial and grey society of the masses ('The Rarest Flower', 'Boy at the Window'). 'Skintight' is dedicated to the children of this world - our future. Children embodies real, true and endless love; love towards nature, and love between human beings. This is an album which will open your hearts."
