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!

Are U excited for Michelle Branch's return to pop?

Another Brit!

Many of you guessed that Julian Perretta would be part of our inaugural Perez Hilton Presents tour.

And you were right!

How could we not????

We called him "The Next Big Thing" and labeled him an "obsession" of ours.

Perretta's album, Out Of My Head, is one of the most finely-crafted debuts of the past decade. It's a perfect fusion of soul and pop, and it screams "future Grammy winner"!

Julian recently opened for Girls Aloud in arenas across the UK, and we are soooooo honored to have him be a part of our tour. And, for him too, it will be his first ever performances in America!!!!

Perretta will join a truly exceptional lineup of performers that also includes Ida Maria, Ladyhawke and FrankMusik.

With such an amazing roster for our tour, we expect demand for tickets will be quite high! To make sure you are taken care of, we are holding a pre-sale this Thursday before tickets go on sale to the general public this weekend. Be sure to keep checking back for info on how to get those advanced sales, as well as what cities the tour will be stopping in and what acts will be playing where.

Check out two of our favorite songs from Julian Perretta below and then CLICK HERE to listen to some more stunning songs from his truly special debut album.

World Premiere!!!!!!

| Filed under: Exclusives!AnglophiliaListen To ThisJulian Perretta

We're so proud!

We have repeatedly labeled Julian Perretta one of the "Breakout Stars of 2009" and "The Next Big Thing", and he didn't even have any music out yet!

Well, that's all about to change as the 20-year-old is finally getting ready to release his debut album of pop/soul jams!

AND…..

We are thrilled and honored to present the exclusive debut of his first-ever music video for Wonder Why!

When we posted the song back in February, the reaction was so instant and positive, it was overwhelming!

We think you will love the video as well! It is cool and slick but also cute and charming.

The whole world is about to fall in love with Julian Perretta.
