Anastacia Set To Release New Version of 'What Can We Do (A Deeper Love)', Promises "2012 is Happening"
I can't believe that it's been over three years since the release of Anastacia's last album, 2008's Heavy Rotation. That's an insanely long time for the world to be without one of the greatest pop voices of all time. Well, the wait is nearly over music lovers. According to Anastacia via a January 17th video blog on her newly relaunched website, 2012 is going to be a big year for the 43 year old Platinum-selling singer/songwriter!
"2012 is happening. It's motivating...it's Škoda, it's new album, it's new material...all-year-long!"Brilliant! In case the words themselves aren't enough, there's video evidence that Anastacia is back in the studio! Doubly brilliant! In case you were wondering, Škoda is a Czech auto manufacturer and Anastacia is doing a song for a new ad campaign. The song, "What Can We Do (A Deeper Love)" was originally released December 27th by Dutch mega DJ and Producer Tiësto, but without crediting Anastacia as the vocalist. LAME. Hasn't she already paid her dues?
The good news is that Anastacia is working on a NEW version of the track with production team The Heavyweights (AKA Jack Kugell, Jamie Jones, and Jason Pennock, who are responsible for producing for Shontelle, The Pussycat Dolls, Guy Sebastian, Michelle Williams (of Destiny's Child) and more. The Heavyweights also were responsible for a few tracks on Heavy Rotation. From the sounds of it, Anastacia will be morphing the track from house to Anastacia's signature SPROCK (soul, pop & rock) sound. Per the singer herself via her blog:
"Just finished mastering a new version of the Škoda commercial song. Putting the Sprock-Stacia vibe to the track with producers, The Heavyweights. As I said on Twitter, the Škoda Campaign will happen in Prague in February. We have the Photo shoot, Music Video, and much more in store.........So get ready!!As for the photo shoot, you can check out the fruits of her labor by taking a peak at the singers newly redesigned website. The photos were taken by Peter Svensson. Absolutely stunning. While we're waiting for the new version of "What Can We Do (A Deeper Love)" to come out, check out the video for Tiësto's single...sans Anastacia unfortunately.
