Natalie Imbruglia - Firebird

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by xOJakeXo, May 16, 2021.

  1. She's finally coming! Video has been filmed, artwork is being finalized, and she's been teasing the recording process for a while now. This will be her 5th studio album of original material, and her first after signing with BMG.

    I heard a single may be dropping early next month.

    Known collaborators
    • MyRiot (Rae Morris, Birdy, Hannah Grace)
    • The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr
    • Ashe Howes (Kylie Minogue)
    • Rachel Furner (Little Mix, Steps)
    • Catherine Marks (Alanis Morissette, Wolf Alice)
    I know there was some discussion in the general about the new album but it's her first original album in 12 years. It'll be fun to celebrate another era!

  2. Do we know ANYTHING about the style of music?
  3. My Riot has a lot of alt pop credits like Hannah Grace and Birdy.

    However, I also just realized they produced Rae Morris' stellar sophomore album Someone Out There. That sound would actually be perfect for Natalie, so I'm hoping there's some similarity.

  5. I’d personally love to see her go back to her roots and mix alt with more pop sensibilities.

  6. Catherine Marks co-produced Alanis' last album which is the best album of all time, so colour me excited by her working with Natalie. If she can give us a Nemesis I'll die happy.

  7. I am looking forward to her new stuff. Her last few things were bland, but she's had some amazing songs in the past. She is very underrated.

  8. To my ears, Male is her only misstep. She's remarkably consistent, and the studio albums are basically bulletproof.

  9. All of her original albums are great but if she could do something that rivals the brilliance of her first two? I can see my perfect wig is torn.

  10. BMG is the perfect home for her new music. I’m ready.
  11. So excited to hear this!

  12. The only thing I don't care for in her back catalogue is Male, and a covers album in any of my favs back catalogue pretty much gets overlooked. But all 4 of her original studio albums and b-sides are great (White Lillies Island being my favourite), I'm hopeful she'll deliver once again.

  13. She's literally one of a handful of artists that has a near-flawless catalog. Can't wait!

  14. I've never really bothered with her debut outside of the singles so I bought it the other day and will be diving in soon. I forgot how many different bonuses there were though.
    Also, it might just be the edition I got but City was listed as being over 9 minutes long? And Wishing I Was There was listed as Intuition and vice versa. Weird but nothing major.

  15. Wishing I Was There was always originally track 10 on the album until they re-issued with the ‘not as good’ head shot cover.

    I’ve always much preferred it as track 10.

    City ends and then there’s about 5 minutes of silence and Left of the middle starts.
  16. Does someone from Official Charts read PopJustice?

    They posted this May 17th, which is exactly the list I posted!

    Also Natalie confirming we'll get new music next month.

  18. Raw? Is Nat gonna give us a bareback bottoming anthem? I hope so.
    I imaging we'll get at least one song dedicated to Max, which I'm fine with. A baby with the name Max Valentine deserves a song or two about them.

  19. A shot from the new music video (could be an uptempo?)
