Follow up ‘I Don’t think I’m Pregnant’ saw Anaid’s Aria nominations rise to 5 with Diana achieving two inclusions in Triple J’s Hottest 100.
With a swag of new tunes, Diana later released ‘Beautiful Obscene’, featuring the single ‘Last Thing’ which reached Top30 on the US radio charts and became iTunes most downloaded ‘ Song of the Week’ for 2004.
Diana’s fourth album was described by The Music Network as ” the return of a truly talented singer/songwriter” and by industry veteran Christie Eliezer as “her best album yet”.
Where many have come and gone this “staunchly independent artist” (Kathy McCabe), continues delivering authentic, original music- in her own indomitable style, and on her own terms.
Melancholy, gritty and emotive, the 11 songs on My Queen were hand-picked by producer Steve James (Screaming Jets, Skunkhour) and were recorded through Diana’s self-funded independent label Forola Music during 2014/15.
Reminiscent of many strong female artists and yet brimming with individuality, “My Queen” already has industry buzz, mastered by Tim Young (now a self-proclaimed ‘Diana Anaid’ fan!) one of Europe’s finest whose credits include Massive Attack and The Killers, and with album artwork and video clip for lead single “Can’t Apologise” by Hall Of Fame recipient Nick Egan (The Clash, INXS), this long awaited follow up is sure to create a whole new perception of the diminutive rocker.
Accolades long and gracious, chart topping success and countless festival appearances have made our rebellious songstress Diana Anaid, who is also an activist, equal rights campaigner and mum to Stone, a favourite of the Aussie music scene.
