So Sarah says she's working on a novel.

On her blog she wrote:

my book is coming along...it's called "ravens"... a record of my brief attempt at extreme self-denial. some of my best painting happened amongst those trees, i shall share it with you in this little volume. i just know you'll love it.

I hadn't even heard rumours of a book before she mentioned it on the blog, nor afterwards.

I am very interested in whether or not she has a book deal and even moreso to know more about what she's writing about. Any informants out there... spill! SPILL!

The evils of the internet revealed...

For the record:

Sarah Slean did NOT write a song called "Molly." It has been circulating on the internet as one of her songs, but is actually written by another talented female named Pepper McGowan.

Sarah Slean also did NOT write a song called "I Love You." This has also been mislabeled when it actually belongs to another artist named "Fisher" (Whose album is fantastic, by the way).

The New Record (what I know of it):

Sarah got a great deal from the town of Mississippi Mills this past summer whereby she was able to use their town hall for rehearsal and concert in return for shared profits from her shows. It was during her time in the "woods" that she wrote a whole gamit of new music and started recording.

Sarah herself called this recording an "expensive dress rehearsal" and is now due to have started her real recording.

It was rumoured a while back that Sarah was trying to get Jon Brion to produce her latest album. He has worked with artists such as Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, Rufus Wainwright and the Eels.

Recently Sarah put on a surprise show in Los Angeles at the Mint which has two recording studios. Jon Brion also happens to live in the LA area and puts on regular shows at the Largo. Big coincidence? probably not.

Songs for the new album? It's all speculation but here are my best guesses:

Older Songs:
Everything by the Gallon*
Count Me Out
Little London Night
Day One
The Score*

Songs from the Woods:
Out in the Park
Lucky Me*
Your Wish is My Wish

*these songs have my highest likelihood votes
