Vanessa Carlton Goes from Piano Pop to Murder INC?

Published: 2006-12-19
The last song we heard from Vanessa Carlton was her commercially successful single "White Houses". That single appeared on her sophomore release Harmonium. Her newest release Heroes and Thieves is slated to be released in 2007.

This time around there is a big change with who will be distributing her new album; it will be released by Murder INC. Murder INC. is famously known for their r n' b and rap artists. Most noteworthy are Ashanti and Ja Rule.

Murder INC hasn't had a release in quite some time because of legal battles that the president, Irv Gotti was caught up in. Last year Gotti was acquitted of all money laundering charges that were brought up against him and now he has time to focus on the studio again.

This new move for Carlton also provides a whole new genre. With an eclectic group of producers, Rick Rubin, Irv Gotti, Linda Perry and Third Eye Blind's Steven Jenkins we can expect to hear a whole new feel. From Carlton we are used to hearing piano pop but this time around expect a more Gwen Stefani vibe.
