This was mentioned in her mailer:

ďShe is also working on brand new, completely re-energised solo material, following unexpected Next Gen co-signs ranging from global sensation Billie Eilish to hip-hop royalty Amine.ď

See this I find interesting! Quite random signings but they do signal a new take on her music which is GREAT! I have been wanting a proper artistic development for a long time. She has been quite samy since Reason and even though Version Like Me was progress too, it was still not that good of an album.

But I am glad - and hopeful - about these new experiments.

According to reports, among the people Melanie is collaborating with for her upcoming 8th solo album are singer-songwriter Rae Morris, pop singer Fryars, who previously wrote for Lily Allen, and the one & only Richard "Biff" Stannard, who previously co-wrote with Melanie Goin' Down, Suddenly Monday, Living Without You, The Sea & Rising Sun. Of course, Biff is best known for co-writing & producing the most loved Spice Girls & Kylie Minouge classics. w00t.gif

Melanie said she'll release the covers she recorded at some point, but that she's currently working on electronic music & with some younger artists. "Fun collaborations coming up". So I guess we'll be getting new music first?

I would welcome collaborations with other artists over an albums of covers album.
An album full of covers has little appeal for me.

So apparently Melanie C said at a concert (Dublin maybe?) that the album is coming before the end of the year... considering there are only 12 more weeks left in the year it's coming pretty soon.

I do think she would be better off waiting until after Christmas when the sales climate goes down again in order to chart higher as she is bound to get lost in the Oct/Nov/Dec sales increases... I think she could manage a top 20 if she releases at the right time and promotes hard.

Let's see if she invests in different formats. A vinyl is an absolute must and I guess cassettes give albums a nice first week boost these days.

Version of Me was released in Q4, alongside chart heavyweights such as Lady Gaga, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Presley & Michael Bublť.

Let's be real here - no matter what time of the year she releases, it'll end up selling maybe 10-15k in total. I don't think she cares about chart positions, though I'm sure she (and her wallet) would like something that sells well.

I actually think she does care about the positions! When it comes to the albums at least.

https://youtu.be/J6Z5jL3WY_g she talks about The Sea here from 2:28. Iím sure I remember her saying in an interview that #45 disappointed her but I canít find it.

I recall that she was very happy about Version of Me getting to #25, but again I canít find evidence of it at the moment :í) She did draw attention to the fact though, for instance the albumís bio on HMVís site was edited to reference the chart peak.

She defo said in an interview that she was really disheartened by the sea only going to #45. I'm sure in the same interview she said she couldn't afford or justify TV adverts for it.

If I was her I'd just go all out, multiple formats, online bundles with exclusive stuff. As much advertising as she can get.

Sheryl Crow's latest album got to number 10, she had all sorts of bundles on her store including one with an actual guitar.

We know she used to be ambitious . I believe now she has woken up. I can remember in one interview years ago she said she would like to play Wembley Stadium.

Maybe she came to her senses and realised that it'd be a better idea to put something out in the slightly less competitive Q1 market...

Q1 is a far better time for her to release as she has some chance of getting some notice.
