In addition, the special 2-Disc CD/DVD Before This World Deluxe Edition includes the full-length album on CD plus “There We Were: The Recording of James Taylor’s Before This World,” a behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the album on DVD.

The New Album Male by
Natalie Imbruglia

Pretty much anyone who turned on the radio in 1997 will recall Natalie Imbruglia’s "Torn." The Australian singer-songwriter (and former soap star) hit it majorly big with that one: It topped charts in multiple countries, earned her three Grammy nominations and drove her same-year debut album to sell 7 million copies across the globe.

Enough about the past. Today, Imbruglia is premiering a brand new music video for "Instant Crush," her first single in six years. "Instant Crush" is from upcoming cover album Male, slated for July. Why the album title? Like the rest of the tracks on the release, "Instant Crush" was first recorded by male artists (in this case Daft Punk and Julian Casablancas were the originals).

Download the album on iTunes and Amazon and visit for more!
