Kim Wilde releases a new album soon for the first time in eleven years. The cd is called ‘Never say Never’, the 45-year-old singer writes on her website. A few weeks before the release of the new cd the single ‘You came’ is released, a song with which the British singer had a hit in the eighties. The song is re-recorded.
The album, which will probably in shops on September 8, contains new material as well as new versions of older songs by Wilde.
Wilde broke through in 1981 with the hit ‘Kids in America’. Until 1996 she released more than thirty singles and nine albums and guest starred on concerts by Michael Jackson and David Bowie. In 2003 her duet with the German singer Nena ‘Anyplace, anywhere, anytime’ became a hit. It was a new version of the hit Nena had in German in the eighties.
Wilde is not just a singer, but also a well-known gardener. She presented the programme ‘Garden Invaders’ for the BBC and released a book about gardening.
