Heart's Erase is a studio album by English folk singer Shirley Collins, released in July 2020 via Domino.

On the 24th July 2020, Shirley Collins released Heart's Ease, her second album for Domino. Heart’s Ease follows 2016’s Lodestar; which on its arrival, seemed like a musical miracle; an enthralling new LP from a woman who is widely acknowledged as England’s greatest female folk singer, but who had not recorded an album for 38 years.

With Heart’s Ease, Shirley delivers a record even stronger than Lodestar having completely regained her confidence, and singing so well that you can’t believe she was away for so long. As Shirley put it, “Lodestar wasn’t too bad, was it? But when I listen to it, it does sometimes sound rather tentative. I had to record it at home because I was just too nervous to sing in front of somebody I didn’t know. This time I was far more relaxed – even though I went into a studio.”

Recorded at Metway in Brighton, Heart’s Ease is as compelling and original as Shirley’s great albums from the sixties and seventies. There are traditional songs, of

course, from England and the USA, but there are also more new songs than in the past (four non-traditional tracks) and there’s even a burst of experimentation that hints at possible new directions to come.

This album is on black vinyl with a four page booklet and digital download code, pressed in Europe via Domino.
