It’s been a hell of a while, but pop singer-songwriter Stacie Orrico has finally announced her return to the music industry. In an e-mail to her
only biggest fansite, Stacie confirmed that she’s working on a new album, and that signing another record deal is “foreseeable in the very near future”.
Stacie described the album as a continuation of where she left off with her self-titled sophomore album and 2006′s soulful Beautiful Awakening. She’s been working on material in Nashville, and debuted some of her new tunes through a small showcase there last month.
Could Stacie spending time in Nashville mean that we’ll be hearing country music influences on her next album?
Sadly, there’s no video footage of the showcase yet, but there are a few blurry pics showing Stacie with new long brown hair. I also found a new Stacie photo floating around on Last.fm, which you may gawk at below.
*ring ring* “Hey y’all! I’m coming back to slay your faves. You mad?” *beep beep*
Oh, and for some reason she’s planning to finally release Beautiful Awakening in America, five years after it first hit international shores. Not exactly sure what the point is, but that album does still s*&t on the majority of pop/R&B albums released since it, so good for her.
Is it safe to say that this is the most anticipated comeback album of the CENTURY? I think so!
