Heather’s Song of the Day: First Train Home

Today’s Song Of The Day has not one, but two accompanying music videos. “First Train Home” is the first single from British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap’s third solo album, Ellipse. Imogen is perhaps best known for her work with Guy Sigsworth in the band Frou Frou, but her last solo album was quite successful as well. In fact, Imogen was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy when that album, Speak For Yourself, was released, and Jason DeRulo is currently hovering near the top of the charts with the song “Watcha Say” that sampled “Hide And Seek,” Imogen’s breakout single from that album.

Imogen hired British stage designer Es Devlin to direct the video for “First Train Home,” but was ultimately unhappy with the finished clip so she filmed a second version of the video on her own. Now you can be the judge. Which video is the best? Discuss and enjoy!
