I thought maybe I dreamed it but it seems it's purely wishful thinking and apparently I'm not the only one holding out hope for Hope.
But sadly, the official statement on her website is - "Happy New Year! I have been receiving a lot of questions about new music and tour dates in 2011. As of now there is nothing to report. Any news will be posted here immediately."
The hope I'm referring to is Hope Sandoval. The hauntingly beautiful lead vocalist of Mazzy Star & Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions.
The mere thought of having a new album to love as much as I loved She Hangs Brightly circa 1990, has me dizzy with anticipation.
But for now we wait. At least there's this track and this one from 2009 and Pandora radio.
