Annie 2005 (250x387)Annie starts work on new album

Publisert: 03/30/2006 av Tomas Lauvland Pettersen


Pop-phenomenon/DJ Annie has roped in some famous friends to help out on her eagerly awaited new album.

Ex-Smashing Pumpkins/A Perfect Circle guitarist James Iha and dance producer Richard X will feature on the follow-up to 2003's 'Anniemal', which is scheduled for release later this year.

Says Annie: "The new songs are more club-oriented - still 80s-sounding, but different. But to be honest, I never really know what things will sound like until I finish the album. I'm sort of in the middle of the album. There's going to be a lot of different people, it's going to be more diverse, but I'm not quite sure which direction the production will go."

Annie told MTV she's not too worried about losing her core fanbase if she goes in a new direction. She insists: "It's not going to be a blues album or a country album."

After she finishes recording with Iha in New York, she'll team up with French techno producer Alan Braxe (who worked on Stardust's 1998 worldwide hit 'Music Sounds Better With You') and then some yet-to-be-named collaborators.

A single, 'Crush', is scheduled for released ahead of the LP.
