Last month the singer discussed her forthcoming album when shared the first track from it, “Build It Better“. “Making this album has been such a profound and satisfying experience. Having gone through a long period of what essentially was writer’s block, it was sometimes hard to envisage getting to this place” she explained.
“Before the pandemic, I started the process of writing this album in London and soon after, I headed to Nashville. With each session and new collaborator, I started to gain confidence, find my voice again, and craft the sound and style that felt authentic to me“.
“It’s been such a privilege to work with such an array of talent on Firebird. I just can’t wait for people to finally hear it.”
“Firebird” is Imbruglia’s first release since cover album “Male” from 2015. In 2018 the singer celebrated the 21st anniversary of her debut single “Torn” which sold over a million copies worldwide and rocketed her to stardom.
