Off the back of her hit single "Torn", Natalie Imbruglia’s 1997 debut album sold more than seven million copies and earned her three GRAMMY nominations.
After that initial burst of success, things got a little rocky. While Natalie’s third album, Counting Down The Days, debuted at Number 1 in the UK, her fourth album, Come To Life, was only released in Australia and New Zealand.
After that disappointment she took time away from music before launching a comeback in 2015 with a covers album called Male, but even that wasn’t the record she’d originally hoped to make, and was one of the reasons she spent the next few years battling writer’s block.
Eventually she overcame it and she’s just released her new album Firebird, which is her first LP of original material in 12 years.
We talk about all the ups and downs of Natalie’s life and career in this interview.
