The divorced singer has gone all natural with her new style and musical sound
She burst on to the music scene in 2002 with her rockabilly dress sense and musical style, but now she's back with a completely different direction.
Imelda May has rocked the music world with her new look as she makes her comeback with a fresh groove and without her trademark blonde streak.
May has poured her heart and soul into the new record, Life Love Flesh Blood, and feels like she's getting a fresh start after going through a divorce with her former guitarist and ex husband Darrel Higham.
She married Darrel, in 2002 but they split last year after having a child together in 2012, but the stress and heartache of the end of her marriage has been covered in her new single, Call Me.
In the past Imelda would sometimes "hide things in my songs and twist them around," but this time the singer tells it exactly how it is.
"It's therapy, like keeping a diary that a lot of people read" Imelda explains. "Some of my favourite songs don’t say much, but they reveal everything."
Accompanied by a stylish and extremely moving black and white video, ‘Call Me’ tells the tale all too familiar to anyone who has ever been in love.
Imelda’s striking and tender vocal is breathtaking as it draws the listener in closely to a song of quiet desperation.
The result is a beautifully gentle but heartbreaking ballad, with Imelda’s soulful voice standing strong alongside warm guitars and restrained drums, which has all the makings of a classic. (Bron: http://www.mirror.co.uk/)
