Oh, heavy heart, you swoon so ..

Not having written a full album since 2011, and certainly not garnering as much popularity as her 2003 hit "A Thousand Miles," Vanessa Carlton has been off of everyone's radar for a minute because of her absence. But now that her new collection of work Liberman is out to the masses (released late-October), and tour dates in 2016 are ahead, she's releasing plenty of new music for the lonely souls and it couldn't be any more  like the Vanessa Carlton we swooned over years ago. With "House of Seven Swords," Carlton rips open our chests and tugs at those rotting heart strings to make our emotional dykes burst open with unrelenting power. In short, she's back!
