MV: Rachael Yamagata - Elephants

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Here's the video for Elephants from Rachael Yamagata off her new album Elephants... Teeth Sinking Into Heart due out October 7th.

Info on the new album from Wikipedia:

Elephants... Teeth Sinking Into Heart is the second full-length album by Rachael Yamagata. It will be released by Warner Bros. Records on 7 October 2008 in the U.S. (International release dates are yet to be announced.)

The album is split into two parts/CDs: Elephants, which will feature a darker, more vulnerable and intimate tone, is said to be more familiar with Yamagata's debut, Happenstance; while Teeth Sinking Into Heart, shows a grittier, more cynical side of the artist, who has described it as "this mix of 'Pulp Fiction' surf guitar, PJ Harvey [and] Tom Waits-flavored rock tunes which would be great to play live but ... just developed into this entity that would break the beauty of ('Elephants')." The album will contain fifteen tracks (one of them hidden), the first ten appearing in Elephants, and the last five in Teeth Sinking Into Heart.

Most of the album was produced by Mike Mogis, known for previous works with artists such as Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, and The Faint, among others. John Alagia, who produced Yamagata's first album, Happenstance, has also produced two of the tracks in this record ("What If I Leave", and "Horizon").
