Multi platinum award winning artist Vanessa Amorosi returns with a new single ‘Gossip’. The electro-pop track with a dab of dub-step is inspired by society’s obsession with social media and not believing everything you read. “I wanted to get some positive messages out there. I wanted people to connect and relate with me through my life experiences,” explains Vanessa.
The video for ‘Gossip’ was filmed in the historic Labassa Mansion in Melbourne. Vanessa again enlisted the services of director Stuart Gosling (Nelly Furtado, Good Charlotte, Tom Jones), who also directed the awarding winning video for ‘Mr Mysterious’ and clips for ‘Perfect’ and ‘Kiss Your Mama’. The video will be serviced Monday 11 July.
Vanessa has spent the past year recording her new album entitled V. The album boasts an exciting swag of producers including Linda Perry (Pink, Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keyes) John Fields (The Presets, Bag Raiders), Jimmy Harry (Pink, Kylie, Britney, Kelly Clarkson) and Chris Lorde Alge (Green Day, Rise Against, My Chemical Romance, Paramore). The new album will land in November 2011.
V is a follow up to Vanessa’s 2009 album Hazardous which debuted in the ARIA top 10 and is certified platinum. The album produced the double platinum ARIA #1 single ‘This Is Who I Am’ amassing over 1 million views on youtube and reaching the #1 position on the radio airplay chart. ‘Mr Mysterious’ followed in close succession reaching platinum status and #4 on the radio airplay chart.
Further proving her reign at radio, Vanessa’s platinum single ‘Perfect’ from her 2008 album Somewhere in the Real World has now been played on Australian radio for a record 114 weeks, the longest stint ever for an Australian artist (The Music Network). The track with legs was also the most played Australian song on Australian radio in 2008, it’s easy to see how she achieved the #4 most played Australian artist on Australian radio for 2010!
"This is my favourite album so far. It will push boundaries; yet still remain fun, humorous and bright. I had the best time writing it", says Vanessa.
