    When I first heard 'Everywhere' I fell in love with the Michelle. I really liked the song because it was so catchy and fresh. I bought the 'The Spirit Room' album and fell even more in love. Especially with the amazing 'All I Wanted'. That song to me says more than a thousand words. It describes a big part of my youth.

    Michelle's second album lived up to my expectations. 'Hotel Paper' continues where her debut left off. Highlights of the album: 'Are You Happy Now?', 'Tuesday Morning' and the title track.

    After two solo albums Michelle took a big risk, collaborating with old time friend Jessica Harp. The duo released the amazing 'Stand Still Look Pretty' album under the name of The Wreckers. While the direction of the songs was more country, I loved it as much as Michelle's solo records.

    After the The Wreckers album Michelle started working on her long awaited third solo record. It was supposed to come out in 2008, but got postponed several times. In July 2010 Michelle released an EP: "Everything Comes And Goes' as a teaser of what's yet to come. A full brand new album 'A Different Kind Of Country' is expected late 2010/early 2011.

    I only really got into music as she stopped releasing music in the UK I presume. I remember Are You Happy Now though and downloaded it a while back, it really is great.

    This Way left no impression on me on first listen and it sat around on my computer for well over 6 months without a play until I started listening to it pretty regularly over the past few months. Her song with Timbaland is pretty good, although seems a tad generic and lifeless someitmes. She really needs to go hard and release worldwide as I really want her to succeed.

    Michelle Branch was a rare bird in finding success with a pop-to-country crossover, but now she's going back to pop.

    At the beginning of December, the former Wreckers singer came to a sudden decision about the album she'd been working on since 2007. In an open letter to fans, she nnounced through emotional strokes of her pen that she would scrap that album ... and start over fresh.

    Now, as December comes to an end, Michelle has revealed to fans in a Ustream chat that she's been in London, working on a new album with British songwriter-producers, Julian Emery and Jim Irvin, and that this new project will take her full circle, back to her pop roots, in the same vein as her 2001 debut album, 'The Spirit Room.'

    "I had been listening to the Lissie record, and her song, 'When I'm Alone' is one of my favorite songs out right now," Michelle revealed in her Ustream chat. "I found out that Jim and Julian were responsible for it, so I wanted to work with them. They came to L.A. and we had the awkward first writing date. The first song we wrote together was called 'Spark,' and we were just so excited about it. It was the best writing day possible."

    The tune seemed to change with the scenery. "I was with them in London," the Grammy-winning singer continued. "My favorite song we wrote together is, 'The Story of Us.' It's a song that's really, really personal to me."

    While it may seem that the project has just started, the singer assures that it is nearing completion. "I have about 11 or 12 songs ready to go right now, so I'm going into the studio in January to start recording them," she said, then added with a laugh, "I'm really, really confident that this record will be out next summer! You guys don't even have to believe me anymore! But if I have my way, this record will be out this coming year ... or else! I'm just gonna say, 'or else,' and leave it open ended, and let people imagine the worst! [laughs]"

    Because she feels it's part of the reason why the last project she worked so hard on was shelved, Michelle said she refuses to pigeon-hole her next record in any particular genre. "I hate talking about genres," she said. "Because to me, a good song is a good song. Part of the reason 'Everything Comes and Goes' didn't get released is because some people thought it wasn't country enough. And it was just so hard to hear, because I wasn't trying to be Carrie Underwood, or someone like that. It was music I enjoyed making, and it was influenced by my time in Nashville and by my time in records. I hate putting labels on stuff because it's just so hard as a creative person to limit yourself that way."

    Whereas the previous album was a frustrating experience, this new record has been an absolute joy to make. "The last project I was just taking so seriously, and it was such a draining, emotional experience," she sighed. "But this record has been all about having fun and being creative, and not feeling like I had to write a specific way for a specific genre. it's been really freeing,"

    Michelle also has plans to free up a couple of songs that didn't get released on her last EP, and include them on her upcoming record. "Some of the songs that didn't get released are still really close to me, and I worked my butt off on them and I went through so much with them," she said. "'Through the Radio,' for instance, is one of those few songs I think will make it to the new record. Another song that's probably gonna be on the new record is a Timbaland song -- 'Getaway,' which kind of started as a song written for a mini-cooper campaign that Timbaland and I collaborated on. At the time I was making a country record, so it didn't fit in. But I think it'll fit in with the new stuff. I'm really excited."
    So glad she's going back to her pop style, about time after doing country for a while.

    Michelle Branch has revealed that her new album will mark a return to her pop roots.

    The singer, whose last studio release was a country record as part of the Wreckers, said that she has been writing a "fun" and "creative" LP in the vein of her debut The Spirit Room in London with producers Jim Irvin and Julian Emrey.

    Irvin and Emrey are best known for their work with McFly, Boyzone and David Guetta.

    In a Ustream chat, she said: "I was in London - I've been working on a new record Julian Emrey and Jim Irvine, who are these two writers I met in LA. The first song we wrote together is a song called 'Spark', and we were so excited about it - it was the best writing day possible!

    "It's great because they're writers and also producers. My favorite song that we wrote together was called 'The Story Of Us'. It's a song that's really personal to me."

    She continued: "I have 11 or 12 songs ready to go right now and I'm going to go in studio in January and start recording them. I'm really confident I will have this record out by next summer."

    On the album's sound, she said: "I hate putting labels on it because a good song is a good song. This record is more in the vein of my first record, which I would say was a pop record.

    "The last record became so exhausting that this one is all about having fun and being creative again and not feeling like I have to write a specific way for a specific genre."

    The 'Everywhere' star's last solo studio LP was 2003's Hotel Paper, which peaked at number 35 on the UK album chart and number two in the US.

    Can't wait for this. I love Michelle but I've always preferred her pop songs, probably because I generally am not a huge country fan.

    Listening to her old records, makes me so excited for (the pop) Michelle Branch to return!

    'Everywhere', 'All You Wanted', 'Goodbye To You', 'Are You Happy Now?' and 'Breathe' are all amazing! She really was the Kelly Clarkson before there was a Kelly Clarkson

    'Everywhere' and 'All You Wanted' are my fav Michelle songs I think. Both are so amazing. The lyric of the latter say more than a thousand words really.
