Tim Fite Shares Your Pain on Valentine's Day with Free, Digital Only Release Change Of Heart

Fite on Tour in Australia Followed by North America Headlining Tour with Benjy Ferree

2 February 2009 - After celebrating Halloween with two free digital albums, 2007's Its Only Ketchup and 2008's ding dong Ditch, Tim Fite is adding Valentine's Day to the short list of holidays that warrant free LPs with the February 14th release of Change of Heart. The record will be available on Fite's website href="http://www.timfite.com" target="_blank">www.timfite.com

Fite writes: "Change of Heart is a group of songs that I wrote over the past year alongside Fair Ain't Fair in an effort to come to terms with a broken-heart. The songs on this album are about longing and pain. They are about sorrow and loss. They are about heartache and tenderness. But, most of all they are songs about love. There is a rich history of recordings made in the name of love, and a beautiful tradition of exchanging hearts in the form of music. Change of Heart is my small contribution to that exchange, and if you can excuse its broken state, my heart is yours."

While the rest of us are home, crying into our boxes of chocolate listening to Change of Heart, Fite will be enjoying a brief respite between a handful of Australian headlining shows and five festival appearances at the Laneway Festivals - alongside the likes of Girl Talk, Architecture in Helsinki and Stereolab - before setting out for his first ever headlining tour supported by fellow genre-defier Benjy Ferree which kicks off February 19th in Cambridge MA.
