Forget the Vanessa Carlton you used to know.
A pop phenomenon, new album 'Liberman' makes no attempt to match her past - and instead veers towards the future.
The material was overseen by producer Steve Osborne, and finds the singer incorporating new elements while still remaining resolutely pop.
New cut 'Nothing Where Something Used To Be' is a case in point. Clash is able to premiere a Steve Osborne produced remix - which is actually the original version.
Confused? Let Vanessa explain.
“This is an interesting remix situation cause this version of the song was actually the first version. Steve and I experimented a lot while we were exploring the palette of what Liberman should be. We looked at this as an experiment and when we moved on to the next chunk of songs this version didn't fit on the album. I was doing my dance workout one day a couple months ago and this version of the song was way deep on a playlist and popped up. I really loved it but had forgotten about this attempt. I sent the song to my manager and he was like we gotta release this! So here we are.”

'Liberman' will be released on April 29th.
