Gabriella Cilmi is moving closer to r&b
Posted at 6:26 PM, 28 January 2009 -

Speaking to The Daily Star, Gabriella Cilmi revealed that her new material is «sounding more R&B». She is writing a new album with Xenomania, Invisible Men and Eg White.

«I toyed with rap on one of my current songs "Save The Lies". It didn’t really work out, but it hasn’t put me off. I’m going to give it another go for sure», she said.

«I've been listening to a lot of Blondie too, especially their song "Rapture". It's a direction I’m keen to continue with, but I’ve only written a couple of tracks with Brian Higgins so far, so it’s too early to really say».

Gabriella told the Herald Sun that new songs may also be a bit darker: «I'm finding it hard to write about light-hearted things now. I wrote a lot of fun tunes on my last record, but the new songs are a little dark and twisted».

Meanwhile, Gabriella is currently being launched in the United States, after receiving a Brit Award nomination for Best International Female Solo Artist (she's up against Beyoncé, Pink, Santogold and Kate Perry). Lessons To Be Learned is scheduled for an American release March 17, 2009.
