Remember a few weeks back, when Imogen Heap announced that she would write and produce her next album with the help of her fans?
791 sounds and 225 solos later, Imogen is happy to present the first song she’s written with contributions of some of her most loyal fans. For us here at SoundCloud HQ, it was a fantastic experience to watch her nightly video live streams during which she previewed the many sounds you’ve sent her.
So earlier this week, what started known as #heapsong1 turned into a song called Lifeline, which you can listen to below:
