Annie (aka The Most Over-Hyped Artist Of 2005) To Put Out New Album!

Ah, Annie. She was quite the critical doll last year, no? Her album Anniemal made dozens of year-end Top 10 lists, yada yada. Anyway, her new one is set for release this fall (preceded by new single "Crush") and she's working with Richard X again! But only on two songs, one being a cover of "Two Of Hearts."

Speaking of which, Pet Shop Boys announced on their official site today that the forthcoming remix album Fundamentalism (to be included in a limited release with new studio album Fundamental) will include the Richard X collaboration "Fugitive."

Groovy.

    She should call the next album "Le Sigh." It's an apt description of her oeuvre. Yet I am excited about Two of Hearts....

    i don't get what the fuss is about little Annie. Sure she grew up an orphan and tugged on everyone's heart strings in that hideous red frock, but i didn't think her album was that brilliant?? It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the saviour of pop (that is clearly posted elsewhere on your blog!) Still i liked her enough to be looking forward to her second album...

    Well I will admit to loving "Chewing Gum" and finding the remixes of "Heartbeat" very endearing, but "Anniemal" got a big "Eh!" on MrBrady's iPod. Then you had Annie's "DJ Kicks" album - wendy alert!

    Richard X doing "Two of Hearts" - now that's gonna be good, c'mon..

    EVERYONE was in love with Annie - hipsters, queens, music critics, hobos, etc.

    I downloaded her album three times, and deleted the whole thing three times.

    Annie's hype was well-deserved. I still listen to Anniemal at least once a day and honestly like every song on there.

    I am really excited to hear that she has a new album coming out! I can't wait to hear her cover of "Two Of Hearts"!!

    I'm going to buy it the first chance I get!
