Charlotte Church has undergone a transformation, ditching her high street threads for an edgy new look as she paves the way for her musical comeback.
The Welsh singer looked more like a model in Vogue magazine as she posed in an asymmetrical dark green dress, feathered high heels and headband.
The photo was taken to promote her forthcoming album Back To Scratch, which sees her wokring with a host of producers and songwriters, including Luke Laird, Patrick Davis, Martin Terefe and Sacha Skarbeck.
Church also collaborates with songwriter and her rumoured new love interest Jonathan Powell on the new LP.
The first single will be the title track of the album and deals with a relationship breakdown.
It was reportedly inspired by a family member but since her split from Gavin Henson, Church says she now finds it strikes a chord.
She was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail: “It became the perfect song for my situation so I sing it with a lot of conviction.”
The album also features a cover of the French jazz track Ruby – an ode to her two-year-old daughter who has the same name.
She has also penned a tribute to her mother Maria, called The Two Of Us.
Church admitted she was nervous about her musical comeback after taking a break to have her children.
“The decision to come back to work after I had babies and stuff, I was a bit scared – but music and singing is what I do and I don’t think I’ll ever lose my passion for it at all.”
“I’m a little bit nervous that it’s not too far away from what I used to do. My classical voice is still there. But now we’re just trying to focus on creating a sound and I hope it will be a sound that everybody enjoys.”
Back To Scratch will be released on 1 November 2010.
