Seattle-based singer-songwriter Robert Deeble premieres two music videos today for songs from his forthcoming new album Heart Like Feathers.  The record, Deeble’s first full-length release in six years, is out February 7th.  Heart Like Feathers is also scheduled for release in a deluxe limited edition version that will include a CD of acoustic demos, a DVD with the “Sunflower” and “Eucharist” videos among others, all packaged in a hardcover book bind.

Of the videos and the songs that inspired them, Deeble comments, “An interesting aspect to ‘Sunflower’ is the return of an old friend, Victoria Williams.” Named one of Paste Magazine’s “Top 100 Living Songwriters,” Williams appeared to sing a duet on Deeble’s first album, “So, I found it fitting to invite her back to add vocals to the last song on my latest album,” explains Deeble.  He continues, “We recorded in her California home, capturing her amazing spirit on tape and some great video footage, as well.  Our director Todd Zeller was able to use this beautifully in his video of the song.”

Of “Eucharist”, Deeble explains that the video features a new mix of the song from the upcoming limited edition of Heart Like Feathers. “In this version we completely recut the guitars to heighten the intensity and dissonant distortion that we felt the song called for.”  This recording of “Eucharist” also features ethereal guitar work by Ric Hordinski, a founding member of Americana favorites Over The Rhine.

In addition to Williams and Hordinski, joining Deeble on Heart Like Feathers is Stephen Hodges (drummer with Tom Waits and Mavis Staples), and Anna Lynne Williams of dream-pop band Trespassers William. Heart Like Feathers was produced by Dylan Magierek, founder of Badman Recording Co. (My Morning Jacket, Mark Kozelek, The Innocence Mission) and is scheduled for release on February 7th via the artist’s own Mind Bomb Publishing in conjunction with Dead Letter Records.  The deluxe limited edition version of Heart Like Feathers is scheduled for release in April, 2012.
