Ingrid Michaelson's Everbody Contest

Today the third album from TV show soundtrack darling Ingrid Michaelson is set to be released. Titled Everybody, it's the follow-up to her 2007 album Girls and Boys, which slowly gathered momentum and propelled Ingrid into the hearts of listeners everywhere, and Be OK, the benefit collection of b-sides, covers, and live recordings. If you haven't snuck a listen, here's the first single from the album, Maybe.

taken from her new album Everybody

This latest album clearly displays a lot more production fire power. While her first studio album showcased a quiet, introverted, almost awkward voice, with an acoustic sound that matched her almost timidness, this third album comes through packing a much more powerful sonic punch, not simply relying on Ingrid's guitar, but also employing other instruments to carry the sound. Ingrid and her lyrics hold more certainty as well, growing from that injured girl we first met into a women willing to emphatically express herself.

If you haven't pre-ordered the album, or ran out this morning to pick it up, I've got a copy to give away. Simply leave a comment (or email me) with your name and email address and you'll be in the running. I'll choose a winner at random Saturdayish and notify them via email.

And in the meantime, here's a favorite of mine from her last album, Be OK, a benefit for Stand Up to Cancer.

Visit her website, her label Original Signal Records, and become her friend on MySpace.

Oh. I'm probably too late, huh. Luckily I don't feel too bad about buying this album myself.
