American soul/pOp songstress Anastacia is currently putting the finishing touches to her brand new album, due for release in Europe at the end of October. The album (rumoured to be called ‘Heavy Rotation’) has a bevvy of producers on-board including man-of-the-moment Ne-Yo. But the big surprise is that Anastacia has now signed to Island Records, distributed in Australia (and through much of Europe) by Universal Music. Why SonyBMG let her go is a mystery, given her last album with them sold around ten million copies globally, topping the charts in the UK, Germany, Greece, Sweden, Norway and even here in Australia. Anastacia will head to Europe in October for the album’s release, before making her way around the world to promote her fourth LP, the first since 2004’s ‘Anastacia’ which spawned the hit ‘Left Outside Alone’.
