Blog From Natalie

Hi guys,

I've been really busy lately, it's all very exciting! I keep getting texts from my friends saying that they love the new single. They keep texting me from the gym saying "I'm working out watching your video!" It's really funny!

From my new album, my favourite song at the moment is 'Fun'. It's so beautiful! I also love 'My God', and 'Scars' is great too. Recording this album has been a long process, but the most enjoyable bit has been the latter part, working with Chris Martin and also Ben Hillier, who has been a really big influence on me. He really showed me how to make it fun in the studio. We experimented a lot with song ideas and musical directions. It's just been really, really interesting!

Oh, last night I watched the first episode of the new series, Flash Forward, with Joseph Fiennes. It was brilliant! I've already done a series link on Sky Plus. I was interviewed by Simon Mayo and he told me about the show. I'm hardly ever at home to get into these series, so I decided to give it a go from the beginning. Everyone blacks out at once, and they all dream of flashing forward to half a year in the future. There's a cop who is trying to figure out what happened, using what he remembers from his flash forward. It's brilliant because you have to piece it all together, it could go on forever! It's not just action, it's interesting and thought provoking

I've not been to the cinema for a while, although I'd like to see The September Issue. I haven't had much free time. While I was in Australia my sister gave me some new music, so I've been listening to As Day Follows Night by Sarah Blasko. I also like the latest album by The Red Sun Band, which is called The Shiralee. I've been listening to Leonard Cohen a lot too.

I went to see Coldplay the other week at Wembley Stadium, and it was SO amazing! I loved every second of it. My favourite song was 'Lovers in Japan'. The X Factor bit was really amusing, with Simon critiquing the audience's performance. I loved Jay-Z too, and I just downloaded his album, which I'm looking forward to getting into.

Tonight I'm taking my stylist, Karen, out for a birthday dinner. Then on Thursday I've got a gig at Heaven in London, which I'm very excited about. We've been doing lots of promo so it's nice to do some singing rather than talking! I've got a really solid, great set planned. My band and I are rehearsing all afternoon on Wednesday. The last gigs I did were in Ireland for the Guinness 250 celebrations, which were quite rowdy. We were all in such good spirits! The crowd wanted me to down my pint of Guinness in one but I didn't want to drink too much, or I'd forget all the words.

I'm reading Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts at the moment. I don't have a lot of time at the moment, but I love this book so much I don't want it to end. It's about an Aussie guy who escapes prison. He had a really interesting life, as he was on the run and he went to India. He set up the first ever medical hut in one of the slums, but then was thrown back in jail. It's really full on, but poetic too. I'm reading a little bit at a time so if I'm still reading it at Christmas I'll be a very happy chappie.

You guys said I should sign up with Twitter, so... I did my first tweet yesterday! You can follow me @natimbruglia so make sure you say hi!

That's all for now but I look forward to seeing some of you on Thursday!

Love, Nat xx
