Baby’s Back!.. what took her so long?
It’s been over 12 years since the release of Emma Bunton’s last solo album, ‘Life In Mono’ in 2006.
Since then Emma has gone on to make a name for herself in the world of broadcasting working on shows such as ‘Dancing On Ice’, ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ and ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’ as well hitting the airwaves on London’s Heart FM co-hosting Heart Breakfast alongside Jamie Theakston.
Bunton also famously reunited with her Spice Girls bandmates for the groups hugely successful 2007/2008 reunion tour ‘The Return Of The Spice Girls’ and then again for the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.
“The reason I called the album ‘My Happy Place’ is because my happy place is with my family, with my friends, listening to music and being in the studio. All those things came together on this album.” Emma says ahead of the albums release.
“While recording it my kids came to the studio, my friends came down, my mum listened to every song over and over again. Being in the studio I just feel so happy.”
“As you get older you feel more confident because actually your priorities change, and my family have become my focus, but this album is like the icing on the cake.”
“Being able to write, record and perform is definitely that extra sprinkle of magic.”
