LEAH’s new album “The Quest” came out yesterday and to celebrate the release, she released a lyric video for the second single “Lion Arises”. You can watch it below.
“The Quest” is LEAH’s third full-length studio album and compared to the last album “Kings & Queens”, it’s a bit different “with a stronger Celtic & fantasy connection, some prog rock elements, ethereal ambience, combined with traditional symphonic metal elements.”
With “The Quest”, McHenry decided to step out of line and not release it via digital stores and streaming sites. “Very simply, the digital music industry has come a long way but it still has a ways to go. In full transparency, it’s difficult to make a living from streaming and digital stores with the way they have it structured. So for a period of time the album — in both digital and physics formats — will be available via my website/shop only.”
At this point, LEAH is not sure how long it will take for the album to be available for online streaming and download in digital stores. She says: “It could be a month or 6 months. I’m not very conventional and don’t do what everyone else does. I also realize not every person will be happy about this. In the end, I have to go with my gut. And it’s also important that fans realize that for independent artists – the BEST way to show support for the art you love is to get it from the source – from the artist.”
For now, the album is available for purchase via her website only. You can watch the teaser with song previews below.
