ITV’s long running arts show The South Bank Show has been granted a rare and exclusive interview with Annie Lennox.
The show has secured exclusive access to an exciting and intimate rehearsal with her band, and gives an insight into the thrill of preparing for a live performance, which enables her to re-interpret her recordings to give the audience something completely unique.
Lennox discusses her life from her sheltered upbringing in Aberdeen to her arrival at the Royal Academy Of Music where, on her first day, she realised she would never make it as a flautist. Also covered is her decision at 21 to become a singer, and her �hell of a journey� with Dave Stewart, through to launching her solo career.
Annie talks about her fourth solo album, Songs Of Mass Destruction, which lends her voice to how she feels about the world and the human race, and how writing music saw her through her devastating marriage break up.
The show will be available on the internet in both podcast and vodcast format at www.itv.com/southbank.
