So glad you're coming back, bb!

Michelle Branch has revealed that she's returning to pop music and has been writing a "fun" and "creative" album in London with producers Jim Irvin and Julian Emrey.

Her last studio release was a country record as part of The Wreckers back in 2006, however, the singer has said that she wants to go back "to her pop roots," similar to her 2001 album, The Spirit Room.

When talking about the upcoming album, she said:

"I was in London - I've been working on a new record Julian Emrey and Jim Irvine, who are these two writers I met in LA. The first song we wrote together is a song called Spark, and we were so excited about it - it was the best writing day possible!

It's great because they're writers and also producers. My favorite song that we wrote together was called The Story Of Us. It's a song that's really personal to me."

I have 11 or 12 songs ready to go right now and I'm going to go in studio in January and start recording them. I'm really confident I will have this record out by next summer."

Although, she does say that she "hates putting labels on it because a good song is a good song. This record is more in the vein of my first record, which I would say was a pop record." She continued:

"The last record became so exhausting that this one is all about having fun and being creative again and not feeling like I have to write a specific way for a specific genre."

Whatever your new album sounds like, we're happy you're returning to your roots!
