Natalie Imbruglia signs to BMG & confirms new album plans
Natalie Imbruglia has signed with BMG, with a new album set for release in 2020.
Imbruglia announced the news on Instagram overnight.
“I’m very happy to announce that I have just signed a record deal with BMG!! What an AMAZING team.
“I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!”
It will be her first new material in ten years.
Her album of songs originally recorded by male artists was issued through Sony CG in 2015.
Imbruglia’s signing with BMG marks a return to the label through which she released her 1997 debut album Left Of The Middle, which sold 7 million worldwide.
It is the highest-selling debut album by a pop/rock/alternative female artist, more than Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple and Meredith Brooks combined in its first week, according to Billboard.

I’m very happy to announce that I have just signed a record deal with BMG!! What an AMAZING team. I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!!!! And as you can see from the pic.. there is another announcement… (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon). I’m expecting my first child this Autumn. For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor-I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly. I’m so excited about this next adventure… a new album and I’m going to be a mum! 🎶🤰🏻🎉😍❤️✨
After its success in the UK, she moved to England to follow her career as a musician, actress and model, and became a naturalised British citizen in February 2013.
The 44-year-old also revealed in her Instagram post that she is pregnant with her first baby after using a sperm donor to conceive through IVF.
The 8 x ARIA winner was married to Silverchair’s Daniel Johns between 2003 and 2008, parting ways because their careers kept them on different ends of the world.
