25 jaar nadat Heather Nova de hitlijsten besteeg met haar debuutalbum ‘Oyster’ heeft de Bermudaanse singer-songwriter haar tiende studioalbum ‘Pearl’ aangekondigd. Nova levert met ‘Pearl’ wederom een prachtig, rauw rockalbum dat de strijd aan kan met eeuwige favoriet ‘Oyster’ en bewijst daarmee nog steeds op de piek van haar carrière te zijn. ‘Pearl’ bevat 11 nieuwe nummers en verschijnt op 28 juni via V2 Records. ‘Pearl’ werd opgenomen in de studio van Youth, die ook haar debuutalbum ‘Oyster’ produceerde.

Over de totstandkoming van het album zegt Nova: “I didn’t plan to release an album on the 25th anniversary of ‘Oyster’. It just worked out that way. When I was ready to record a new album, I thought it would be cool to have Youth produce one or two of the songs, to revisit the vibe and sound we created back then. I sent him my demos so that he could choose one or two. The message I got back was “Really beautiful .. I’d love to do them all .. can see the connection to ‘Oyster’, but the songs are better!”


“My songs have always reflected my inner world. In the period I wrote this album, I got divorced after a 20 year marriage, spent a few years on my own, during which I felt a renewed sense of peace, independence and a strong sense of my connection to nature. (The song ‘Re-wild me’ came out of that) and then, to my complete surprise, fell madly in love.”
