Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts

Song: Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts
Artist: Annie
Album: Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts

It's been a long time since we heard from Norwegian dance-pop princess Annie.  I've missed her.

While her first two albums have been well-received, I feel Annie is still waiting for that Robyn-sized breakthrough.  Don't know if that's actually possible, I suppose that depends on what she's got coming up next...

Which is a bit unclear.  Semi out-of-nowhere a track called "Take a Look at the World" by Ralph Myerz featuring vocals by Annie appeared recently and then made it onto iTunes, and almost immediately after a new bonafide Annie track, "Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts" materialized with an odd little video. (see below)  Both are kind of amazing.

"Tube Stops" is co-produced by Xenomania, though there have been rumours that she's working with long-time collaborator Richard X, possibly for just an EP's worth of material, maybe an album.  I guess we'll see.

New Annie is always cause for excitement.
