You might remember me mentioning a while back that Natalie Imbruglia was releasing a new album. Unfortunately, it will not be a proper studio album of all new material. The album, out in March, will be composed of songs made famous by male singers.
Speaking about the new record with The Joye, the Australian songstress says: “I have an album coming out next March. It’s a covers album featuring songs from male artists. It’s mellow, possibly not what people would expect from me but when have I ever done anything people expect? It’s where I’m at right now in my life. Calmer, more considered..I’m not a doof-doof person.”
While the tracklisting hasn’t been revealed, we do know that the album will feature cover versions of songs made famous by Neil Young and French electronic-music legends Daft Punk. I am not really that interested in this covers album, though. I am tired of the never-ending trend of aging pop stars releasing cover albums. So boring!
Imbruglia released her last studio album, Come to Life, in 2009. The album, which was released on her self-funded label, Malabar Records, stalled at number sixty-seven on the Australian albums chart, becoming Imbruglia’s worst performing album to date. The LP spawned just one single: the criminally underrated pop gem “Want.”
