Amy Milan may be best known for her work with Broken Social Scene and Stars, but at least for the foreseeable future, the 35-year-old Toronto native plans to go at it solo. As the indie starlet recently revealed in an interview with JAM! Music, she has begun work on what will be her second full-length solo album and plans to release it sometime in 2009.
Milan began recording the currently untitled followup to 2006’s Honey from the Tombs last month with producer Martin Kinack in Ontario. Dan Whiteley, Mark Roy, Dean Stone, and Christine Bougie are among the musicians who have been tapped for what Milan calls, “covering everything sticks and picks.”
Of course, Amy Milan’s break from the stars, or whatever you want to those high power musical outfits coming out of Canada these days, will not at all be permanent. In fact, as the singer/songwriter went on to reveal, Stars will likely begin work on their own new studio album beginning in February, though there is currently no timetable for its release. A live record is also reportedly in the folds.
