Natalie Imbruglia Plots A Comeback, Announces Fifth Album (Due March 2015)

Every ’90s kid knows that Natalie Imbruglia‘s Left Of The Middle is a flawless masterpiece from beginning to end. The angst-pop album, which was spearheaded by blockbuster single “Torn”, sold millions and earned the newcomer three Grammy nominations. She seemed unstoppable but experienced diminishing returns with subsequent releases and decided to concentrate on acting.

Happily, the much-missed Australian diva is plotting a major comeback. She just signed to new management and will release her as-yet-untitled fifth LP in March 2015 via Sony Masterworks. Natalie has already revealed that it’s covers album that focuses on the work of male artists including Neil Young and Daft Punk. I’d prefer new material (2009’s excellent Come To Life is a testament to her growth as a songwriter) but I’m still very much here for this.

If you need a reminder of why this comeback is a great thing, revisit these gems:

2005’s beautiful “Shiver”:

2007’s sunny “Glorious”:

2009’s biting and bitter “Want”:
