Amy Macdonald, whose debut album 'This Is The Life' made her one of the world's most successful British female singer-songwriters, is back! Amy Macdonald released her highly anticipated second album 'A Curious Thing' on 8th March 2010, and it's been flying high in most of the charts around Europe ever since. Following from the success of third single 'This Pretty Face' in July, Amy returns with her next offering. The delightful 'Love Love' which is set for a 4th of October release.
With ½ million albums already sold in three weeks, 'A Curious Thing' is quickly catching up with her 3 million selling debut. 'A Curious Thing' hit the #1 spot in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and went top 5 in a bunch of others including the UK, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Sweden to name a few. Amy Macdonald has supported the release with a comprehensive tour of Europe, which included a sold out UK tour and a knock-out set at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Months, miles, club shows, pub shows, halls, theatres, festivals, encore's, second encore's: through good old-fashioned gigging, word-of-mouth enthusiasm and constant, overwhelming radio play Amy Macdonald went from being an unknown teenage Scottish singer-songwriter to international star. Being the ever-restless songwriter she's been from her early teens, she's alchemised those experiences into the sound of her second album, 'A Curious Thing'. Big, bold and dramatic. Intimate, tender and touching. It's Amy Macdonald, full-voiced and rebooted and reenergised, with added hammering piano and a couple of guest spots from Paul Weller ('A Curious Thing' was recorded at his studio in Surrey).
