It has been eight years since Valerie Francis released her debut album Dynamo Slow, which earned her a Choice Music Prize nomination. She is back with new material and plans to release her much anticipated follow-up record by the end of this year. On this week's podcast, Valerie gave us a sneak preview of what's to come playing three songs live during the episode. She also spoke about her musical influences, the realities of making money from music and THAT surreal Kanye West shout-out. You can catch Valerie at the RHA's Hennessey Lost Fridays, next Friday March 3rd.
