    Tracey Thorn, the sultry vocalist behind British trip-hop duo Everything But the Girl, has finished work on her first solo album in 25 years. It's a confident electro-pop record, but more importantly, Out of the Woods features music written without contribution by her husband and partner-in-EBTG, Ben Watt.

    "There is an enormous amount of pressure when you live and work together," Thorn told Billboard magazine. "We did that for a lot of years, and we made it work. Now, we have this successful and wonderful balance that works very well. Plus, with this record, I felt I had something to prove to myself, that I needed to assert myself. For me, the danger of working with Ben was that he hadn't had a break from music. I think he might have taken the idea of the record and run with it, and I would have been in the slow lane trying to catch up."

    Out of the Woods will be released on March 20th on Astralwerks.
