What’s with all the Australian singer/songwriters attracting high-profile bands to collaborate? Fresh off news of Gin Wigmore’s dabblings with The Cardinals comes word that Natalie Imbruglia has teamed up with none other than Coldplay for her new album.
Due for release on October 5th in the U.K. and October 12th in Europe (a U.S. release date is still forthcoming), Come to Life will mark the Australian’s fourth full-length album and will feature 10 tracks, three of which were co-written by Coldplay. They are called “Want” (which also happens to be the album’s first single), “Lukas”, and “Fun”.
“A bit annoyingly we’ve given her the best Coldplay song of all time, but because we’re off-cycle we can’t do it ourselves,” Martin said of the song “Want” in a recent interview with the Herald Sun (via TwentyFourBit). “Half of me wishes we still had it. But she sounds f—ing brilliant on it. I think she has a very unique talent and an incredibly unique voice.”
And if all that wasn’t enough, Imbruglia also collaborated with producer Brian Eno, Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns, and Sheppard Solomon on the album.
Come to Life‘s release will be preceded by the aforementioned first single on September 28th.
Come to Life Tracklist:
01. My God
04. Twenty (feat. Sheppard Solomon)
06. Want (feat. Chris Martin, Daniel Johns, Guy Clark)
09. All The Roses
10. Wild About It
