Natalie McCool is one of Liverpool’s finest exports. Her first album excited us and every single she’s released since has pushed her to new heights. Her sophomore album, The Great Unknown is around the corner so it seems a good time to catch up and have a natter with her; especially since it’s been four years since we last spoke…
Hey Natalie! It’s been a while since we last chatted with you back in 2012! How have things been?
Wow – long time no speak! I don’t think I had even released my first album then, and this one’s my second! Things have been great! New album coming out that I am super proud of, and I’m going on tour in early September – woohoo!
You’ve been busy with singles since your last album really wowed us – at least some of which will be appearing on The Great Unknown. Have you enjoyed working on smaller projects or has the album given you something to dig your teeth into?
I think I was finding my feet in what I wanted to write about next, foraging into different themes and experiences and writing so much about everything that’s happened over the past couple of years in my life. This album includes some of those singles as part of that journey. It’s been a really maturate experience for me – but in contrast to that I think the songs are more raw and fierce than ever.
Which is your favourite track on The Great Unknown?
Ooo that is HARD! I would say ‘Pins’. So much
