Sarah announced that her live album titled "Orphan Music" will be out October 31, 2006. In the past Sarah advised that shows taken from her 2005 solo tour were being recorded for the project.

Sarah stated at yesterday's reschedualed concert at the Grand Theatre in London, Ontario that the album will contain B-Sides as well.

In an inteview Sarah had with the London Free Press on September 30, 2006, she descibed the title as "Orphan Music takes its title from Slean's sense that her songs -- or "little urchins" -- seem to exist for a moment and then disappear into the air during a live performance."

"Orphan Music" was at also one time considered as a title for her album Day One. "She was tempted to call the album Orphan Music, to describe how she felt cut off from the world, learning to cope for the first time on her own, but she settled on the more hopeful Day One, after a joyous title track about waking up and "spreading love like a terrorist" (source: Stephen Cooke, Halifax Hearld). Another working title for the album Day One was the Baroness, now adapted to the film name Sarah is using with Nelson Chan and branded the official page.

Video for Weight

After years of waiting with limited information, MTV Overdrive Canada has the video for Weight streaming. The website has many requirements that are needed to be met which include Internet Explorer and may require you to be in Canada. Thanks to Fenian for posting news of this video on Sarah's forum.

The video only coasted around $3,000 to make and was done when Sarah was 19 years of age.
Some facts on the video posted on are:
"Song: Weight

Album: Universe (and later, Nightbugs)
View/Download: unavailable
Other information:
There is a video. I haven't seen it, but the way Sarah Slean describes it, it isn't terribly representative of who she is or what the song is about...

>>Steve said she did make a video for 'Weight', but the likelihood of it ever getting aired on any sort of TV station is pretty slim. I'm thinking maybe we'll see it as a quicktime / realvideo movie on first...

Possibly! Is there a demand for it? Who'd like to see it?
