Do you remember that point a few years ago where it seemed like Charlotte Church was going to save pop, then it turned out that she had recorded a fairly will-this-do album of scattergun pop efforts which she went on to promote with all the grace, subtlety and lightness of touch of Katie Price in a branch of Ann Summers?
Well she has gone and done a new album and this song from it is really good. It is called 'Snow'.[youtube]a6IIgDrVT9w[/youtube] The commentary on the video is quite interesting — we've deciphered a few of the key points for you.
"The decision to come back to work."
I think of this as a job. Is it hometime yet.
"Music and singing is what I do."
The Charlotte Church show didn't go down very well.
"I started writing with people from all over the place."
This was completely aimless.
"Nashville is saturated with music."
I listened to my iPod a bit while I was there.
"Experimenting and creating a new, different sound."
Unless you heard the Siobhan Donaghy album, that one she had out while I was working with loads of people on the pop album and saying 'this is what I'm really about not that stuff I did before' and shortly before I said it wasn't really what I wanted to be doing after all etc etc.
