Giveaway CLOSED: Katie Melua - The House


It's GIVEAWAY time! First things first, if you haven't checked out my review of Katie Melua's new album, The House, make sure you do so HERE.  I couldn't wait for the new album to be released stateside, so I snatched mine up right when it came out in Europe and have been enjoying it ever since.

The House is due out tomorrow, August 3rd in the U.S. and I'm giving one of my U.S. readers the chance to win a copy.  This STUNNING record is Melua's "most mature album to date" according to All Music, "a bold, atmospheric record" according to Q and a "her best yet" according to The Times.  Melua wrote/co-wrote eleven of the twelve songs on the album, joining forces with Guy Chambers, Lauren Christy, Polly Scattergood, Rick Nowels and long-time producer Mike Batt. Melua has made, what I think might her best album since her 2003 debut, Call Off The Search. It's a beautiful, dark and dramatic album filled with rich melodies, lush orchestration and heartfelt lyrics.

Make sure you check out Katie during her American Television appearances:
