The Listening Chair is taken from Imogen's 4th solo album 'Sparks' - Out now! 

Here's the song in Imogen's words:

I will never live to experience the finished feeling of this song, as it will only be finished when I die! Every 7 years, another minute is added to the song. From a fill in the blanks lullaby of the first minute to the torment of feeling you're in the wrong job, relationship and town coming into my mid 30s! 35 when I wrote this, 5 minutes long. perhaps the next 7 years will be expressing some memories of my own children? I do hope so! Inspired by the many hundreds who sat in The Listening Chair and shared with me their dreams of a 'song still to be written'. I wanted to figure out whether there was a common missing song thread people were aching for but instead something more interesting perhaps arose. Roughly each 7 year age group were concerned or wanted to hear a song about similar topics. I resonated most with those my own age at the sudden realisation perhaps I've gotten it all wrong! I settled upon writing the song to connect with all these people through us sharing life experiences over time. I look forward to every 7 years dusting off and bringing out The Listening Chair again, connecting this period in my life and those who shared this journey with me to people in my life when I'm 42, hopefully with kids in tow!
