Today Heroes and Heartbreakers is thrilled on two levels to welcome Scarlett Cole to the site. First, Scarlett's The Purest Hook releases today (yay!), and second, Scarlett has brought with her the world premiere of a song that was written exclusively for the release of The Purest Hook (double yay!): Bishop's “Living Without You.”
Listen to the world premiere of Bishop's “Living Without You,” written and performed exclusively for the release of The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole:
Plus, to celebrate the newest book in her Second Circle Tattoos series, Scarlett introduces some of the songs that say it for Pixie and Dred, and for her:
Ever had that moment when a song comes on and it feels as though the lyrics were written just for you? Like the time in 1984 when my friend Joanne was convinced Wham had read her mind before writing Last Christmas. Or have you associated a song with a period of your life so strongly that every time you hear it you’re transported back there? I can’t hear “Nightswimming” by REM without thinking about a packed Japanese Airlines flight to Tokyo.
For me, that carries over to writing stories. I want my characters to have that kind of connection to music too. Whether it is a memory of their own that gets written into the story, or music that inspires the scene I am writing.
