As her first ever solo greatest hits is released, Annie Lennox contemplates the ways in which parenthood has shaped her work – and explains why the past 15 years have passed in a flash.
Auditors in, as the poet said. Annie Lennox is releasing a 14-song retrospective collection of songs gleaned from a post-Eurythmics solo career that began in 1992, and which has resulted in multiple Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards, Oscars, Golden Globes, plus some 78 million albums sold worldwide. But commercial success apart, the process of reviewing the work lent the singer a sense of perspective she didn’t possess while actually making the records.
The Annie Lennox Collection is out now on Sony/BMG.
