Natalie Imbruglia is eternally grateful to her new husband Daniel Johns, because he's the sole inspiration for her new album.

The Australian pop star found composed COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS an easier experience after marrying the Silverchair frontman last year (04).

She says, "This last album didn't have any direct influences, apart from what was going on in my life and the fact that I got married. I'm really content at the moment and really happy. I think that was coming through on all the songs.

"It's nice to write from a happy place, the second album I was in quite a dark place so it was a nice change."
