About this album

Speak for Yourself is the second solo album by British singer Imogen Heap, following her collaborative effort with Guy Sigsworth as Frou Frou. It was released on July 18, 2005 in the UK, on November 1, 2005 in the USA, Canada and Mexico, and re-released through White Rabbit Recordings in the UK on April 17, 2006. The album was written, produced, arranged, and funded by Heap, without the backing of a record label, and features guest appearances from Jeff Beck, who does a guitar solo on “Goodnight and Go”, and Heap’s boyfriend, Richie Mills, who argues with her on “The Moment I Said It. ” It was released in the UK through her own label, Megaphonic Records, in a special digipak created specifically by Heap, before being licensed to White Rabbit Recordings in 2006 for the UK and international markets. It is licensed to RCA Victor in the USA, where the first run of 10,000 copies were copy protected and encased in the digipak (further editions are in a standard jewel case with a cardboard slipcase). As of August 2009, it has sold 431,000 copies in the USA according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album has also achieved gold status in Canada.[6]

“Hide and Seek” and “Goodnight and Go”, the album’s lead and second single respectively, were both featured in episodes of the US TV drama The O.C., as was “Speeding Cars”. “The Moment I Said It” was used in the Criminal Minds episode called “Seven Seconds”. “Can’t Take It In” was featured in film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. “Clear the Area” was sampled by rapper / lyricist Saint. “Hide and Seek” was also used as the soundtrack for an advert by Sky promoting the Series 5 Finale of a television series, Lost.

    Imogen Heap is my heroine. I wish I had an ounce of her talent. This second album of hers is perfect. There's trippy music boxes, grand pianos, lyrics about headphones and headlocks, condemnations and vulnerability. It's a record you 'listen' to in the truest sense of the word and thus will still be relevant when you're 80 years old. A masterpiece.

    one of the best of all time? you really need to explore music alot more before you can say that. however, in this kind of music (electropop i guess), this album is a real diamond, and probably the best to come out in a hell of a long time

    On pretty much every album for every artist I like, there are always songs I skip. I usually only like a few songs per album or artist. ...Not so with this CD of Imogen's. I listen to every single track; there are no fillers for me. :D

    Better than Details from her Frou Frou collab. I didn't think it was possible for anything to beat that album.

    If this album had gotten the promotion it needed I think she would have a lot more recognition these days, at least in the UK. I never ever get tired of any of these songs :D
