Vanessa Carlton

Vanessa Carlton premieres “Operator” video

Vanessa Carlton premieres the official music video for her single “Operator” today on Billboard, click here to watch. The track is off her much-anticipated NEW studio album, Liberman out October 23, 2015 in North America. “Operator” was directed by Daniel Henry (Jack White, Kurt Vile) in Vanessa’s new hometown of Nashville, TN.

With this video, Daniel basically reversed the age old story of kids running away and instead had the parents run away,” says Carlton. “The kids are left to do what they want in this big house. The older sister takes charge the best she can. It’s done in a cinematic and slightly abstract way.”

Vanessa recently announced her fall tour in support of the album and teased fans with an album trailer. Fans are also now able to pre-order an autographed copy of Liberman (standard, deluxe) exclusively on Vanessa’s website that can be bundled with tickets to the upcoming tour, click here for more info. A vinyl edition of the album will be available end of November.

The ten songs on the upcoming album reflect Vanessa’s current state of mind since moving from NYC to Nashville, marrying husband John McCauley (Deer Tick) and having a baby girl.  The simple instrumentation mixed with her wistful vocals and poignant lyrics bring you into her world and showcase a new side to this accomplished songwriter.
