Imogen Heap - Glittering Clouds (The Plague Of Locusts)!

So I assume that you all got a little overwhelmed by that Lily Allen cover? How about a brand new Imogen Heap track for your manic Monday? Yeah, you heard me.

This is track 8 from 4AD’s Plague Songs compilation, on which ten artists each contribute one song based on one of the ten biblical plagues that take place in the book of exodus. Imogen Heap's contribution is for the plague of locusts. As you can see, the song's got a very whimsical, Barney-ish title, and it's quite upbeat and danceable too, but all of that can be a bit misleading since the lyrics are rather dark. That I call the 'Lily Allen' method.

Doesn't hurt to say that the song's quite good too. Go ahead, give it a listen.
