Vanessa Carlton Performs New Song, “Love Is An Art”

After releasing her fifth album, Liberman, in fall 2015, Vanessa Carlton embarked on a tour that produced two live EPs: Liberman Live and Earlier Things Live. Now Vanessa is back on tour in support of those EPs, and her live show is already bringing some new goodies. At a show in Toronto on March 3rd, Vanessa performed a brand new song called “Love Is An Art.”

The song is slow and moving, ambience building up with the sparse lyrics. “Love Is An Art” describes getting to know each other – the weakness, struggles, and all – and build up a protective relationship. It’s a lovely song that captures your full attention. Will it appear on the next studio album Vanessa releases? For now, fans can enjoy the live recording. Watch Vanessa’s live performance of “Love Is An Art” below:

This is not the first time Vanessa has debuted a brand new song live. Prior to Liberman‘s release, Vanessa performed many of its songs during tours. Fans heard songs like “House Of Seven Swords” and “Matter Of Time” years before the album came out.

Vanessa has already mentioned that she’s starting to work on her next album. She’s currently writing new songs, and will likely begin recording later this year. The upcoming sixth studio album will be her first written since having a child. Her daughter, Sidney, was born in early 2015 after Vanessa had already recorded all of Liberman. Vanessa is still early in the process, but hopefully she’ll reveal more about her next album in the coming months. “Love Is An Art” may appear on her next record.

You can buy Liberman and the two live EPs on iTunes or Vanessa’s official store now. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out tour dates and get tickets before it’s too late. Vanessa’s tour is taking her across most of North America between now and the middle of April. Keep checking back here for all the latest Vanessa Carlton music news.

 

“Love Is An Art” Lyrics

Will you tell me your story?
I just want to listen
I just want the words to sink into me

I know it’s been hard for you
I know that you’re getting through
If I could be the knife that cuts you free

Always moving the light through the dark
Always building up, falling apart
Love is an art
Love is an art

If we build a house together
Structured to withstand the weather
Shelter from this Tennessee storm

Always moving the light through the dark
Always building up, falling apart
Love is an art
Love is an art
Love is an art

It’s a natural game
It’s a natural game

I don’t want to need you
I don’t want to leave you
I wonder if our babies know who we are

Always moving the light through the dark
Always building up, falling apart
Love is an art
Love is an art
Love is an art
