We were beginning to wonder what had happened to singing sensation Megan Washington over the last few months! Now we hear she's releasing a new album this year!
After bursting onto the scene in 2010 with as much coverage as she could muster the songstress has decided to keep a low profile whilst she attempts to make inroads in the USA market.
"It was getting a bit aggressive. I don't want people going, 'Oh, her again'.... I still find it odd that anybody knows who I am" she says, speaking with News Ltd from her base in New York.
Washington also says she's already feeling homesick "I'm streaming Triple J every day for a fix of the accent,"
In December last year it was reported that Washington had finished recording a new group of songs with the intention of releasing them as her follow-up to debut I Believe You Liar which peaked at number 3 on the ARIA charts and went platinum.
She appears to have had a change of heart since then saying "That album's gone to God, It just wasn't the right thing. Had to get it out of my system. Now it's gone."
She is now working a new project titled Insomnia, which as is turns out the singer suffers quite regularly.
"It's a work in four acts," Washington says. "It's a capture of the last year of my life."
"It's a chronicle of my experience with insomnia and what happened to my brain."
Insomnia will be exclusively released in Australia from 21 October 2011. In the meantime check out the first track from the album, titled Holy Moses.
