Emily Hearn Announces Tour for New Album: Hourglass

Emily Hearn is a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Athens, GA who recently announced she will be going on tour to promote her latest album Hourglass. Produced by Chad Copelin (Christina Perri, Ben Rector, Green River Ordinance), Hourglass encompasses almost two years worth of conversations, musings, inspirations and defining moments in Hearn’s life and was written in her adopted hometown of Athens, GA as well as Michigan, Tennessee and North Carolina with her bassist husband, Michael Harrison. Other collaborators include Ben Rector (“Please, Don’t Take My Love Away” and “Save Me”) and Emily Lynch (“Volcano”).

The lead single “Volcano” is a melancholy song about the slow cooling of a relationship. Listen to the beautiful tune below.

Hourglass is the follow up to her 2012 Paper Heart, which included the key track “Rooftop” and an accompanying video that features a dancing, drum-playing Bill Murray in the music video.

We think her haunting melodies are absolutely beautiful. Could Volcano possibly speak to the heart any more? After previewing the rest of Hourglass we can definitely say that the other tracks on the album are equally amazing. Each and every person can find pieces of their lives in this album. You’ll want to sing a few of these at the top of your lungs, that’s for sure. Grab a copy of Hourglass when it drops in just a few days on March 10th.
