Mary Lambert’s ‘Heart On My Sleeve’: Stream The Full Album

When I interviewed Mary Lambert last month, she described debut LP Heart On My Sleeve as being her very own Teenage Dream — a reference to Katy Perry‘s all-conquering pop opus. It’s an extremely well-executed bit to flee a niche that was created for the “Same Love” singer by people who never thought a curvaceous lesbian could be a pop star. She proved them wrong with radio smash “Secrets” and has plenty of other surprises in store for doubters on her very, very good record.

Heart On My Sleeve, which is now streaming in full, is a winning mix of offbeat pop anthems, tender ballads (that will no doubt strike a chord with fans of her earlier material) and even a brilliant cover of Rick Springfield‘s ’80s classic “Jessie’s Girl”. It’s hard to pick highlights but the catchy title track and the moody “So Far Away” have to be in the running. Listen to Mary’s LP (due October 14) after the jump.

The album is now streaming on iTunes. Take a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below.
