Amy Macdonald, whose debut album This Is The Life made her one of the world's most successful British female singer-songwriters, is back! Amy Macdonald released her highly anticipated second album A Curious Thing on 8th March 2010, and its been flying high in most of the charts around Europe ever since.
With ½ million albums already sold in three weeks, A Curious Thing is quickly catching up with her 3 million selling debut. A Curious Thing hit the #1 spot in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and went top 5 in a bunch of others including the UK, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Sweden to name a few. Amy Macdonald has supported the release with a comprehensive tour of Europe, which included a sold out UK tour and a knock-out set at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Months, miles, club shows, pub shows, halls, theatres, festivals, encores, second encores: through good old-fashioned gigging, word-of-mouth enthusiasm and constant, overwhelming radio play Amy Macdonald went from being an unknown teenage Scottish singer-songwriter to international star. Being the ever-restless songwriter she's been from her early teens, she's alchemised those experiences into the sound of her second album, A Curious Thing. Big, bold and dramatic. Intimate, tender and touching. It's Amy Macdonald, full-voiced and rebooted and reenergised, with added hammering piano and a couple of guest spots from Paul Weller.
