Natalie Imbruglia Announces New Album “Firebird”, Releases New Song “Build It Better”
- Australian singer-songwriter Natalie Imbruglia is back. She announced her upcoming sixth studio album “Firebird” would be released on September 24, 2021. It is her first LP in six years and is also the first album under her new label Sony BMG.
From the album, she released the first single “Build It Better” along with a music video.
The track was written by Luke Fitton, Fiona Bevan and Natalie Imbruglia. Produced by Natalie Imbruglia and MyRiot.
Natalie Imbruglia saod of the song, “It's about 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.”
- The album was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. She worked with My Riot, Albert Hammond Jr, Gus Oberg, and Romeo Stodart on the album.
“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,” she said. “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.”
