Reminder: download expires

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Some people have found it strange that we’ve posted I Can Feel You in its full glory. We normally don’t do that but the single is not available yet (it’s not a CD-rip), neither as digital download on iTunes/Amazon nor in the form of a CD. This is part of the single promotion and as mentioned in the previous post the download will expire on august 31st. We fully support Anastacia and will buy her music regardless of what is or isn’t available online. Check back for release dates!

I Can Feel You Lyrics

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Until the official lyrics are released (probably with the Heavy Rotation booklet in late October), here is Freaky Enough’s rendiiton of the lyrics to Anastacia’s new single I Can Feel You.

Lyrics – I Can Feel You

Yeah

Tell me
What have you done to me, oh
How come your eyes
Feel like your hands on me?

Am I under some magic spell? Whoa
Did you put a hex on my body
I’m aroused, oh, boy can’t you tell?
I can’t explain it or fight it
And boy ’cause I like it

I can feel you
From my head, to my feet
You’re all over me
I can feel you
When you’re not next to me
Taking over me
I can feel you
When I kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, baby
I can feel you, baby
Kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, baby, oh

You’re in control
I’m a slave to your will, baby
Baby, you got a hold on me
Just your name gives me chills

Am I under some magic spell? Whoa
Did you put a hex on my body
I’m aroused, oh, boy can’t you tell?
Said, I can’t explain it or fight it, I like it

I can feel you
From my head, to my feet
You’re all over me
I can feel you
When you’re not next to me
Taking over me
I can feel you
When I kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, baby
I can feel you
When I kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Feels like you’re inside
Pushing my buttons, making me do
What you want me to do
When you’re not by my side
Baby, I can still feel you, whoa-oh, ooh!

I can feel you
From my head, to my feet
You’re all over me
I can feel you
When you’re not next to me
Taking over me
I can feel you
When I kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, baby
I can feel you
When I kiss you, baby
Touch you, baby
Love you, baby, oh

Anastacia Comes Clean About Her Age/New Photos

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Speculations whether Anastacia is born in 1968 or 1973 have been around for quite a while but now Anastacia comes clean in an interview with Fabulous magazine:

“I’m turning 40,” she confesses. “And I’m happy to tell Fabulous because I’ve always lied about my age.”

And the fib had a huge impact when Anastacia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003.

Although she was 35, her fans thought she was 31, making the story of her illness even more shocking.

“At that point I thought I really didn’t care that it was a lie,” she says, “because people thought that being young meant you didn’t get cancer, but there were tons of young women who wrote to me and had cancer.

“I felt I needed to be the voice for that.”

After beating the disease, Anastacia tried to correct her age.

“I would just say I was in my 30s.

“But that became embarrassing because people would wonder what I was hiding. I’m thrilled I can finally be 40.”

She freed herself from the lie after signing a new record deal and unveiling a softer look to promote her fifth album, Heavy Rotation.

First Press Release and Photos

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

Press release from Universal Records is out and the promotion for Anastacia’s new album “Heavy Rotation” has officially started.

The lady with the most distinctive voice in pop music is back. Having secured a new record deal, singer songwriter and global superstar Anastacia returns this autumn with a brand new album, “Heavy Rotation”, as well as a new look and sound. 
  
With over 14 million album sales in Europe alone, in excess of 225 Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum discs, countless awards (from MTV to Marie-Claire awards), and a record-breaking chart history to her name, Anastacia is not only one of the biggest selling artists of this decade, but also one of the biggest names in today’s music industry.

Anastacia has recently signed a new recording deal with Mercury Records, reuniting her with its new president David Massey (who signed Anastacia in 1999 and has collaborated with her on all her past records).

“Anastacia and I have worked together for many years and I am thrilled to have her join the Mercury/Universal family,” said Massey. “It has been incredible to witness her growth and success thus far, and we feel her best is yet to come with Heavy Rotation.”

“Heavy Rotation”, the fourth studio album from Anastacia is due for release on October 27th 2008. Collaborators and producers on the album include: Ne-Yo (Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Beyonce, Usher), Lester Mendez (Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Jennifer Lopez), JR Rotem, (Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Sean Kingston), Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue) and Rodney Jerkins (Mary J Blige, Pussy Cat Dolls, Britney, Beyonce, Michael Jackson). With a body of songs that are not just hits, but are empowering anthems, and a direction that has progressed and evolved without abandoning Anastacia’s signature sound,  ‘Heavy Rotation’ is set to be Anastacia’s most powerful and successful release to date.

“I called the album Heavy Rotation because it’s a phrase that originated with DJs,” Anastacia explains. “And also for me the meaning is, life can be heavy, but it all turns around and goes into something else. It seemed to be the perfect title for where I’m at in my life.”

Heavy Rotation will be released on October 27th. “I Can Feel You”, the first single to be taken from the record, produced and co-written by Chuck Harmony and man-of-the-moment Ne-Yo, will be going to radio in select international markets on Monday 25th August, with the plan for US, Canada and the rest of the world to follow in 2009.
