Anastacia - Anastacia's emotional new album

Subscribe to Anastacia alerts


Anastacia sings about the pain of divorce in her new album.

The 'Left Outside Alone' hitmaker filed for divorced from Wayne Newton 2010 and she used the emotions she felt during that tough period in her life to help shape tracks on her forthcoming record 'Resurrection'.

She said: ''I had done a lot of healing on that score prior to writing the album. But there are definitely things in there that attest to the strength, mourning and the pain of divorce - the ebbs and flows. I had such a plethora of unwritten emotions in my heart that once i opened the floodgates it all came pouring out.

''The songs do paint a picture of resurrection - someone who is stripped. I know I've stripped myself of a lot to try and find what's inside.''

Anastacia - who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and last year she revealed she had a double mastectomy after the disease returned - also wrote her new album in the wake of her second cancer diagnosis, and two of the songs explore her determination to beat the disease.

She added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''['Stay'] is pretty much a song that says I'm not ready to go just yet - not ready to die. As I was writing it, I knew it was intense. Then I came home and played it for my sister and she cried.

''But at the same time its got this playful energy - it's almost kind of childlike in the music.''
