Chantal Kreviazuk updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@chantalkreviazuk) on Monday (November 10), discussing motherhood, the U.S. elections, and progress on her fifth album. The Canadian singer songwriter tells readers:
I am SUPER psyched, getting it all together.
There are about 12 songs, but I think there will be 10 songs on the album and 1 or 2 of the others will be bonus’ that will be made available….for fun.
This album is different I think for me. However, it feels really natural to me.
One thing that writing for other people has taught me, is not to feel like such a foreigner when touching on other musical ground.
Don’t worry I didn’t make an acid jazz record or a dance album.
However, I think I am definitely exploring new musical territory, and it has been really fun and NOT boring in the least.
The album has a lot of subjects – love, its maturing process (Raine and I are going to be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary next year!) and helplessness – still wish I could save the world, and it also (I think from now having 3 kids, and being so overwhelmed) has a lot of “connection” on it- I feel like having a pretty big family and a lot of responsibility makes me feel closer to the whole world – we’re all in it together, working hard, doing our best.
