Thought it was about time Alex got a new thread!

'Out of my shell' is the tentative title for Alex's album, which she is still recording. This should follow the next single, which is still being finalised!

So far, the songs that we know she has recorded for it are:
Hey papi
Lost ur mind?
Out of my shell
Lost ur best
Falling
Thank you
Ain't holding back
All To Myself
Perfect
How many tears
Could've
Blue sky
Who's
Open your wings
Not that man
Supper
Dance
Show it
OMF
To you


The last 4 are the most recent ones she has recorded!

And Alex's own top 5 songs of hers are:
1. Supper
2. How Many Tears
3. Ain't Holding Back
4. Lost Your Best
5. Out Of My Shell

Wooo! :D :lol:

Can't wait to hear Supper! :lol:

And Alex has said that the song 'Out of my shell' may be the third single (after whatever she releases next)
When you left I lost a part of me, It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please cos We belong together

'Lost Ur Best' is my favourite Alex song, this should SO be a single!

Lost Your Mind is being released next is it not? I've seen the video and it's good but that was a few months ago. Its a pity 'Hey Papi' flopped and hopefully the new song does well

'Lost Ur Mind' is cancelled, but compared to 'Out Of My Shell' and 'Lost Ur Best' and even 'Falling', It probably wasn't such a strong track.

Wooo, I really can't wait for this album!

It sounds like it's gonna be pretty eclectic LP, and the latest news is that Alex is going into the studio with new soul singer Jamie Scott (currently doing the rounds with his own single, 'Just'), so that's something I'm really looking forward to! :o

Yeah there's some interesting collabs in the pipeline, "OFM" and "To You" were written with two songwriters called Jon-Paul and Marvin Ambrosius - Martin is Marsha from Floetry's younger brother! *hopes I'm not the only one who remembers Floetry* :oops:

I remember Floetry. They were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize last year weren't they?

Yeah, I don't really remember the album, but the single 'Fleoetic' was really cool stuff!

Okay, yes this is really spam, but what are you gonna do about it ay?! :lol:

Just a quick post to those who kinda casually are vaguely interested in Alex - don't worry, she's still been doing loads of writing in her quest to get a strong album together! She's been working with people in Norway and Ireland, and is heading off to Miami very soon...

Those are the only tracks that have been made available through promos by EMI - you'll just have to wait!

Hey Everyone,

Sorry I haven't been on for a while, a lot has been going on in my whirlwind of a life and I'm here to bring you the news, from the horses mouth, I don't want you to find out through anyone else. I always promised, I'd be the first to tell when I had anything important to say, so here I am...

But before anything, I'd just like to thank each and everyone of you, for your continuous support, and all the love you have given me *she says all chocked up* you have been so so so amazing, I cannot thank you enough. I will always treasure you and know that you have a very special place in my heart!

Now, as much as I hate to say this, some of the rumours that someone posted on the board, were true, I am in dispute with the production company and EMI have decided they cannot continue with my project, as creatively they feel they have come as far as they possibly could with me. So from today onwards I am no longer signed to EMI records.
What I am going to do now, is keep fighting, NO, I'm NOT going to find myslef another job, cos music is what I do best, I'm gong to sort out all my legal problems and fight for another deal, because that's what I know is in my heart and what I was meant to do with my life. So I hope you'll be around for me when I return, much wiser and stronger, cause I'll be waiting for you!

Until then, take care of yourselves!

Lots of Love always
Alex xxxxxxxxxxxx

P.S. I'll still come on the board to check how you guys are, so you don't have to go completely, you know!

Posted on her official forum today.

What makes me really annoyed is that EMI took so much time, effort and money to help Alex creatively, allowing her to work with so many different people all around the world - and then they've suddenly just given up! :o

Only Alex knows the fill story though. There's things we don't know - like the legal battle for example!

I never really heard of her but that's a really, really nice gesture to post that message on her board. Shows she really cares about the fans. Bless her!
