A heavenly album that won't judge you

"Heaven" is a concept album that will change the way you see and hear albums. It's the Mortal Kombat of music. The big kahuna of all big kahunas. The best thing since sliced bread. It's what it would sound like if all your dreams were made into a soundtrack. If you intend to listen to this with an open mind you'll have your mind blown - listen to this knowing you are about to embark on are musical escapade that could change your entire life for the better. Most importantly, don't stream it free - download it  to express gratitude - you'll be really grateful. It's also available on CD and vinyl - you'll need a backup copy.

Let's start with the album notes - yes, it comes with notes:

"The Bilinda Butchers "HEAVEN" is a soundtrack set to the diary by Nakajima Ume, a young woman who lived in Japan from 1836 to 1864. The diary's entries catalog her catastrophic marriage to a cruel nobleman, and her later introduction to a young, idealistic poet whose expressions of sympathy inspire her to escape from her unfortunate circumstances. When her friendship with the poet is discovered, Ume is sent away to a distant village, where she falls into a deep depression and eventually learns of the poet’s death. Though the news of the poet’s death initially disturbs Ume, she soon discovers within herself a new sense of clarity and motivation. Her diary ends with a final pronouncement: she will drown herself in order to reunite with her fallen lover. "

Now that you know what it's all about, you are ready. Put on your smoking jacket and your best slippers - you won't need socks for this, they'll just get blown straight off the minute you hit the play button. You are about to enter into a world where sounds come alive, a world full of pure energy that will bring you back to your centre from where you can discover or reconnect with your very essence.

This is not an album - it's medicine for your soul. If you are reading this from Earth in the year 2019, then you probably need it. Share it with everyone you love. And have a wonderful Sunday.

...And may all your dreams come true in 2019.
