NATALIE IMBRUGLIA – ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM FIREBIRD

SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 24 VIA BMG

SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘BUILD IT BETTER’

Today, Natalie Imbruglia has announced her forthcoming new album, Firebird, set for release on September 24 via BMG. Alongside the announcement, Natalie has shared the first single taken from the album, the instantly catchy ‘Build It Better’, accompanied by the single’s official video bringing a touch of La La Land to Nell’s Cafe.

New album Firebird was written in an array of international locations alongside Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers, KT Tunstall, Eg White (Adele, Dua Lipa, Sam Smith), Luke Fitton (Little Mix, Girls Aloud), Fiona Bevan (One Direction, Ed Sheeran), Rachel Furner (Little Mix, Jason Derulo, Craig David) and more, touching on themes of independence, vulnerability, the juxtaposition of strength and fragility, revealing Natalie’s newfound sense of confidence.

In contrast, the album was almost entirely recorded in lockdown, produced remotely by Natalie and My Riot with additional production from Albert Hammond Jr, Gus Oberg (The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jnr) and Romeo Stodart (Magic Numbers).

Discussing the album, Natalie says “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.  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.”

New single ‘Build It Better’ is the first to be lifted from the forthcoming Firebird. Though unintentional, it could be about a world recovering from a pandemic. Natalie describes the single as “surrendering to the chaos and seeing what’s on the other side of it is a good life lesson. Letting something fall apart, and being okay with that, is something that I have had to do in my life, numerous times, but especially moving into this record and becoming a mum. So I’m really excited about that song, and about the video, which is total escapist fun – the world needs that right now.”

Firebird will be available on CD (Standard & Deluxe) limited signed CD (Standard & Deluxe), limited blue Vinyl and Digitally via BMG on September 24.
