Natasha Bedingfield has been in the studio recording a new album for the last several months. Along with songwriter Linda Perry, she has made tons of progress and shared studio sneak peeks along the way. Last month, we found out that she’s moving in a “retro disco” direction musically, and we already have one song title: “Roller Skates”! Natasha has kept busy all month. Here are some of the most important September studio updates she gave.
On September 10th, Natasha and Linda were in the studio. Natasha revealed what the new music will sound like, especially lyrically:
Looking forward to another week of inspiration for Linda Perry and I. Not leaving without tapping in to the deep water. The music so far is honest, has big energy and resonates with what is going on for us and In the world. Exciting stuff.
Later in the month, they went to Berlin, Germany. In addition to performing at the Dreamball, Natasha also visited Universal Music with Linda Perry and Kerry Brown. Is this her new record label? Everywhere, or just in European markets? We don’t know yet, but this seems to be very good news for fans who want to hear a new album. Note that Natasha is also part of Linda and Kerry’s label / publishing / management roster, We Are Hear.
At the end of September, Natasha shared a throwback picture to her Dreamball outfit. Did her caption include new song lyrics?
We are so ready for a new Natasha Bedingfield album! Though we’ve had some quiet years recently, 2017 saw Natasha release four new songs, including “Let Go” and “Hey Boy.” (The latter she wrote with current collaborator Linda Perry.) However, Natasha’s personal life took center stage later in the year. She announced her pregnancy last fall, and her son Solomon was born on December 31st.
In February, Natasha said she was “really determined to get some of the best music and art that I’ve made out and into your ears”. Now that she’s back in the studio officially recording a new album, we can’t help but wonder: Will 2018 be our year? While it may be a bit too late for that now, we’re certain that we’ll get new music by the end of 2019!
Natasha’s last album, Strip Me, came out an astonishing 8 years ago. Since then, Natasha has spent the better part of the past six years writing and recording, yet a full record still eludes us. Though we’ve gotten plenty of songs here and there over the years, fans are desperate for a full-length release. The good news is Natasha is officially recording a new album now! Whether she scrapped her work from her earlier sessions is unclear. But in any case, there’s new music to look forward to. Here’s hoping we’ll finally get album #4 in the next year!
It’s exciting to know that a new Natasha album could be coming our way. Catch up on all we know about the long-awaited fourth album. Keep checking back here for all the latest Natasha Bedingfield music news.
