Charlotte Church is back from her five-year hiatus from pop with new album Back To Scratch due out on November 1st. First single from the new album is the title track which focuses on a relationship breakdown and was originally inspired by problems faced by a close family member. However, by the time Charlotte came to record the track, her own relationship with rugby player Gavin Henson was also coming to an end. “It became the perfect song for my situation,” explains Charlotte, “so I sing it with a lot of conviction.”
The album is set to slalom from pop to folk to jazz and our Charl has pulled in the heavyweights when it comes to producers and writers, working with people who’ve propelled the likes of James Morrison, KT Tunstall and Jason Mraz. As Charlotte says in the above interview, recording in Nashville was a thrill and coming back to work after having the kids was scary. However, when you’ve got a voice like hers, we don’t think you need to worry too much.
