Q&A with Louise Carver

NEW ALBUM: Louise Carver talks about her new album.

Louise Carver released her finest studio album to date, Hanging in the Void, which is available on CD and on all digital platforms, nationwide.

Hanging in the Void is Carver’s most heartfelt and emotionally stirring album. The first single, Lift Off, launches the album with a powerful message of hope and belief and stand-out tracks – Remedy, Time Stood Still, Your Love is Like and All the Lessons – all tell a story of a tough personal journey that led to creating one of the best records last year.

Carver answered three questions about the new release:

Q What was the inspiration for writing the album?

LC: I was very clear that I wanted to go back to a production, which job it is to support the song and not dominate it. The song had to be strong enough to stand on its own with lyrics and melody that created powerful emotions. I have always, and always will, write about what I have felt and experienced – to be authentic and to reach people emotionally is what I do this for.

Q Which songs on the album mean the most to you?

LC: Each song has been so lovingly written and produced so it’s really difficult to choose any favourite but the one that still hurts to hear is, All the Lessons and the song that makes me feel so proud to be a working songwriter is, Lift Off as I know it will encourage people to shift gears and find courage. I love the energy of Keep your Eyes on me and the late-night nostalgia of Your Love is Like. Each song on the album is part of me and hopefully becomes part of people who love the album.

Q How did you decide on the album title?

LC: I was sitting at a pancake restaurant in Boston, with my US producer, Joe Bermudez and we were talking about the awareness or cognitive shift astronauts get when they view earth for the first time from a spaceship – how insignificant everything on earth seems compared to the bigger picture. He told me the sensation is called, Hanging in the Void and I instantly knew that was the right name for my new album.

Carver has had multiple radio hits with singles, but Hanging in the Void is set to deliver many more radio and fan-favourite singles.
