Susan Boyle’s third studio album “Someone to Watch Over Me” drops in just over a month, but now the singer is speaking out about one of the elements of the disc that took people by surprise — the bright and cheery cover, a contrast to the two darker covers that came before it.
Writing in a new post on her official website, Susan talks a bit about the experience of shooting some of the photos
“This week has been very enjoyable at home in Scotland. I was happy to finally tell you all about the music on my new album, keeping it secret was hard as I’m so very proud of the songs. Also, you will have now seen the new album cover. This was taken at a beautiful old country house dating back to the 1600’s in a wee village called Crail in Scotland. The photo’s were taken in the summer. Luckily the weather held and we had Scottish sunshine, just as well really as most of the photo’s were taken outside.”
Susan also says that she is taking a brief “holiday” before embarking for what is going to be a lengthy publicity tour for the new album, which is likely to include stops both in Britain and America. (Expect plenty of TV appearances here in North America.)
As always, we are going to have extensive coverage of everything Susan does as soon as it happens — if you haven’t heard the studio recording of lead single “You Have To Be There” yet, you can check it out below.
