Amy Macdonald, whose debut album 'This Is The Life' made her one of the world's most successful British female singer-songwriters, is back! Amy Macdonald releases her highly anticipated second album 'A Curious Thing' on 8th March 2010, preceded by the single 'Don't Tell Me That It's Over' on the 1st March. The Scot also heads out on her first full tour of 2010 – kicking off in Inverness on 28th March.
Months, miles, club shows, pub shows, halls, theatres, festivals, encores, second encores: through good old-fashioned gigging, word-of-mouth enthusiasm and constant, overwhelming radio play Amy Macdonald went from being an unknown teenage Scottish singer-songwriter to international star. Being the ever-restless songwriter she's been from her early teens, she's alchemised those experiences into the sound of her second album, 'A Curious Thing'. Big, bold and dramatic. Intimate, tender and touching. It's Amy Macdonald, full-voiced and rebooted and reenergised, with added hammering piano and a couple of guest spots from Paul Weller ('A Curious Thing' was recorded at his studio in Surrey).
Amy Macdonald launched the record with two incredible sold out intimate shows at Glasgow's iconic Barrowland Ballroom on 28th January and the ICA in London on 2nd February. Amy Macdonald will now spend the rest of the year touring the world – with the UK tour starting on 28th March.
Amy Macdonald's debut 'This Is The Life' went to Number 1 in five countries, including the UK, has achieved platinum or multi-platinum status in 12 countries and has sold three million copies globally. The title track hit Number 1 as a single in 10 countries, and she's had combined single sales of over 2 million.
