Annie Lennox Might Not Make New Albums

Annie Lennox drops her new album Nostalgia on October 21st [iTunes link], but it might her last.
"Every time I ever made an album with (former Eurythmics bandmate) Dave Stewart, I always said, 'That's the last.' And after that, with my own albums, it was, 'That's it! I'm never doing that again.' But I came back to it."
Making albums is an experience that seems to be magnetic for her and we are glad, since we love her voice.
The singer claimed her current state of being, which is happy, may be the reason she stops writing. She said, "It's thanks to someone who will remain nameless, but who makes me very happy with life these days. A lot of my writing was cathartic because it was a very helpful way to get certain feelings expressed. Misery is a great catalyst for some extraordinary music but you don't really want to live there 24/7. I'd rather be not successful and happy than be super-successful and absolutely miserable."
Good music comes from an artist and music maker's personal misery, that's for sure.
