“Heartleap” is the third and final studio album by Vashti Bunyan, released on October 6, 2014, in the UK on Fat Cat Records and October 7 in the U.S. via DiCristina.
First announced in June, Heartleap was accompanied by a statement where Bunyan wrote, “The whole point of the album was finally to learn a way that would enable me to record the music that is in my head, by myself. I neither read nor write music, nor can I play piano with more than one hand at a time, but I have loved being able to work it all out for myself and make it sound the way I wanted. I’ve built these songs over years. The album wouldn’t have happened any other way.”
