Annie Lennox: New music in 2008?
It looks like Annie Lennox will release a Best Of compilation in the fall. Her blog says this: "Annie is returning to the studio to work on her first new material since the critically acclaimed fourth solo album Songs Of Mass Destruction in 2007. This new material will be released later in the year through RCA / SonyBMG."
Meanwhile, there is a rumor that Annie sings in the new James Bond movie, though I am not sure she's doing the theme song. That would be brilliant.
In 1987, Eurythmics released a longform video of their album Savage. Amazing stuff shot by Sophie Muller. Brand New Day, below, was the finale. I always loved this video and had not seen it since the 90's. Watching this now reminds me that Annie Lennox has always exuded an aura of self-respect. She's never had public breakdowns or been the subject of distracting gossip. After almost 30 years in the business, that is to her credit. She appears in this video at 1:50, literally glowing.
