Released January 2018 at six tracks long, IN HEALTH is the sophomore release and sister album to D. CLEA's debut release, IN SICKNESS. IN HEALTH in many ways contains emotional ghosts of its predecessor, but lyrically bares a newfound soul maturity, and musically takes risks that were side-stepped on the previous album. The emotional tone winds in and out of all the feelings of coming to terms with longstanding heartache, from the hard-hitting and confident first track, Virus, to the indignant-and-fed-up-turned-vulnerable-and-grieving third track, Drip Kiss Honey, to the final track, Healed, which ends in pleading to be made well. Saturated in sentiment, and thick with character, IN HEALTH has the tendency to resonate with its listener long after the music has stopped.
