Charlotte Church back with new sound
Charlotte Church is preparing to launch an assault on the charts with a new sound.
The classically-trained singer - who has returned from a five-year hiatus after giving birth to Ruby, 2, and 17-month old Dexter -was initially "scared" to return to the music industry with second pop album 'Back To Scratch', as it is very different to her 2005's 'Tissues and Issues'.
She said: "This new album has been quite a long time in the making. The decision to come back to work after I had babies was a bit scary, but music and singing is what I do and I don't think I'll ever lose my passion for it.
"I've been experimenting and trying to create a new and different sound. But also one which goes with my voice. I'm a little bit nervous because it is quite different. But it's not too far away from what I used to do -my classical voice is still there."
The 'Crazy Chick' hitmaker went on to add the LP's title track - which is set to be the first single - was originally written about the breakdown of a friendship, but admitted she recorded the song as her relationship with rugby player Gavin Henson was coming to an end.
She explained: "It became the perfect song for my situation so I sing it with a lot of conviction."
'Back To Scratch' is due for release on November 1.Posted on 12 Aug 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
