Finally the wait is over!
One of the greatest voices to grace pop music is back, 11 years since her last studio album!
Belinda Carlisle started the 1980s as a singer in legendary girlband The GoGos (yes they will feature in the Girlband Legends post due up very soon...) She then went solo and scored a string of successes including 6 top 10 albums in the UK, a global #1 smash with Heaven Is A Place On Earth, which was the first of 20 Top 40 hits in the UK including such gems as Leave A Light On, Summer Rain (later covered by Slinkee Minx), In Too Deep, Do You Feel Like I Feel and (We Want) The Same Thing. Since then she reformed the GoGos to little success and posed for Playboy magazine and appeared on numerous reality TV shows like Hit Me Baby One More Time, Hell's Kitchen and Celebrity Duets.
Now she's finally about to release a new album, Voila, which is is produced by John Reynolds and is a mix of French chanson and modern pop songs. Voila drops on 5 February on Warner's Rykodisc, however we had a taste of one of the 4 bonus English tracks here for you to enjoy! However we're limiting the time this was online as it's a current release so instead you can, and should, buy the album from CD Wow from 5 February.
mp3 removed - you snooze, you lose!
