This spring marks the fifth anniversary of The Heart Speaks In Whispers — the third full-length album by Corinne Bailey Rae. It was nothing if not gorgeous, and it led to one of the most memorable and thrilling Marquee shows that I've been fortunate enough to attend.

At Rockwood Music Hall, Rae was joined by an outstanding band which includes her producer and husband, Steve Brown, on keys. On that gear-crowded stage, she spoke with me about themes of nature on the album, the cyclical nature of life, and the spring-like hope, possibility, and rebirth that imbues her songs.

Corinne's show is today's "throwback" pick from the Vault, so you'll get to feel that same energy again as we feature songs from the set on FUV. And you can experience the full show anytime in the FUV Live Vault.
