Incorruptible Heart is the second full-length album by the Los Angeles-based band Lavender Diamond, released in September 2012 as a vinyl LP, compact disc and digital download. 250 copies of the LP were pressed on lavender vinyl, with 50 copies packaged in a tote bag with an original drawing by the band's drummer and artist Ron Regé Jr. The album was produced by Damian Kulash of the band OK Go, who also sang backing vocals on one song.


Album title

The vocalist Becky Stark gave her interpretation of the word "corruptible" as being made up of the French cœur ("heart") and rupture, in which case "Incorruptible Heart" would yield "non-heartbreak-able heart". (Fanciful as this is, the correct etymology has no relation to cœur.)


The band released a video for the album's lead track, "Everybody's Heart's Breaking Now", on 25 September 2012. Directed by Maximilla Lukacs, it has multiple images of the singer Becky Stark falling and spinning through space.
