Annie checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@anniemusic) on Tuesday (November 25), where the Norwegian singer talked about a meeting she had last week with Island Records. The 30-year-old writes:
I’ve been bit upset, cuz they never wanted to come up with a release date of ‘Don’t Stop’. I think it’s a great label, but I never felt they were that positive to my ideas… so we decided that we’re not gonna work together anymore. After Nick Gatfield, who was the head of Island left the label… a couple of months after I signed, things changed. I’m an artist with lots of ideas, plans… so I’m gonna do things my own way from now on.
At least there will be much more Annie records/songs coming out next year then 2008… Already very first week of 2009, I’m coming out with a song called ‘ÁNTHONIO’.. that I hope you’ll be into… it’s gonna be out on Richard X’s label… so watch out!!!
I think Island are great… it just wasn’t the place for me… no hard feelings, the show will go on… the Annie caravan will keep on moving, and the dogs’ll keep on barking :-)
