Behind the music
Question: Congrats on your debut CD! How'd you pick these songs?
These songs picked me. Ten years ago, Mark Underwood played me "NewClear"
and I loved it. For me, this album's about your environment and how it affects your place in this world and how it affects who we love and who loves us back. "NewClear"
is the best thing I've ever done. The guy who mastered this used to master for Bob Dylan. A lot of my fans love Broadway, but I didn't want to make a musical theatre album. And there's no point in making a punk album that my fan base isn't gonna buy, so I made a vocalist album that shows I can do other things. When Madonna saw me in Taboo
, she loved the makeup song ["Pretty Lies"
] and said I should've done a whole album of that. But if I had rushed into making a CD then, it would've been someone else's album, not mine. Whereas I chose these songs. I chose the artwork. I found the money. I worked my ass off, and I'm very happy with it.
Q: You've included two Boy George tunes; why these two?
I picked "Pie in the Sky"
because I've always loved it, and it was cut from the Broadway production of Taboo
. It's a great radio song. And "Victims"
was Rosie O'Donnell and Kelly Carpenter's idea. I'd love to send my CD to Boy George. I played him for four years and owe him a great debt of gratitude. I'm proud of Taboo
, but it's also something I've happily moved on from.
Q: You've also covered Leonard Cohen's gorgeous "Hallelujah."
Jeff Buckley's version is definitive, and 25 million people have covered it, but I love it. David Nehls arranged it. God, it's a heartbreaking song about the world we live in. It's probably the cut I'm proudest of, along with "NewClear"
and "As It Began."
But my next album will be entirely written by me and Mark [Underwood]. He's brilliant and keeps me on the musical path I want to be on.
