“She’s Back!” says Daily Mail

 Three-time Grammy nominee and Brit Award recipient, Natalie Imbruglia returns with Male, her highly anticipated new album. Male will be released 21 August on Portrait / Sony Music Masterworks.

Natalie Imbruglia finds inspiration for her new record from legendary male recording artists, producers and songwriters. Male, her first album after a six year hiatus, is a collection of new interpretations of both classic and contemporary songs, all performed and written by men including Daft Punk, The Cure, Cat Stevens, Damien Rice, Tom Petty and Zac Brown Band among others. The album is produced by the critically acclaimed and award winning Billy Mann who has also worked with the likes of Celine Dion, John Legend, Pink and Sting.

Natalie Imbruglia said “I love singing. It’s not just all my favourite artists; it’s some new artists I discovered. It’s like a cathartic album, so I got a lot off my chest and I come out at the end of it feeling strong. I’m really proud of this piece of work. And I’m just excited to share it with my fans.

Male takes listeners on a journey through love and heartbreak. “I was drawn toward songs that were dealing with things that were on my mind and stuff that I was processing,” Imbruglia reflects. Male as a body of work encompasses Natalie’s true and raw talent as a vocalist with touching renditions including ‘I Will Follow You into the Dark’ by Death Cab for Cutie and Neil Young’s

Only Love Can Break Your Heart’. The lead track, Daft Punk’s ‘Instant Crush’ picked up international acclaim for Imbruglia from the likes of Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine, “It is such a beautiful story [Instant Crush]. I’m really proud of the way it turned out,” said Natalie. Also making an appearance on the album is the classic and heartfelt Damien Rice penned hit ‘Cannonball’ as well as the gentle ‘Goodbye in His Eyes’ by Zac Brown Band.

Natalie Imbruglia also embarks on a world arena tour as a special guest with Simply Red, which encompasses fourteen live dates. For tickets please visit here.
