For the first time in her illustrious career, Scottish superstar Annie Lennox releases a greatest hits record that carefully combines iconic fan favourites with contemporary cover versions. Documenting her spellbinding solo career, The Annie Lennox Collection gathers together a captivating assortment of the singer-songwriter's tracks in one timeless and classic compilation.
Spanning seventeen years, The Annie Lennox Collection is a rip-roaring retrospective of the eccentric entertainers most accomplished work. Primarily featuring works from the acclaimed debut Diva, and the covers follow up Medusa, this collection celebrates the undeniable talent of Lennox in a mix of gorgeous grooves and blistering ballads. Opening with 'Little Bird', the track puts the collection into flight with thumping beats and soaring sing-along chants. Gliding effortlessly with escalating strings, the instrumental backing sweeps and dips allowing Lennox to spread her wings and let her powerful and rapturous voice take the spotlight. Continuing with the same momentum established in the opener, three of Annie's most notorious songs follow. Whilst 'Walking On Broken Glass' demands vocal accompaniment from the listener with its infectious chorus, the haunting and delicate projection of ballads 'Why' and 'No More I Love You's' strike with heart-wrenching perfection and brooding intensity. Renowned for her ability to transform other people's songs, Lennox's vocal prowess rockets on the reworking of Procol Harum's iconic 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' and Ash's joy-filled 'Shining Light'. Although Annie laces the cover versions in her signature sound, it is the passion and flair in which she projects her own messages on self-penned anthems like Songs of Mass Destruction's 'Dark Road' that cause the largest impact, and show entirely the spectacular strengths of this iconic innovator.
Even without including the renowned hits she has recorded with The Eurythmics, Annie Lennox has compiled a collection of eternal anthems that are immediately recognisable and strike a chord with lovers of any musical genre. Confirming Lennox's status as one of the greatest modern pop and soul singers of our generation, The Annie Lennox Collection is a cleverly constructed compilation that should be an essential addition to anyone's record collection.
