Cyndi Lauper has announced she is releasing a country album next year and says the LP is the realisation of a life-long ambition.
Cyndi Lauper is going to release a country album next year.
The 'Time After Time' singer has had an ambition to record a country LP for years and she's finally going to make her dream come true and intends to work with Seymour Stein and Tony Brown on the collection of songs.
Cyndi's motivation for jumping into the genre now is she realises she's getting older and wants to do it while she's still got ''teeth'' in her ''mouth''.
Speaking at the UK premiere of her musical 'Kinky Boots' at the Adelphi Theatre in London's West End on Tuesday night (15.09.15), the 62-year-old pop icon told BANG Showbiz: ''I don't know if you listen to country music but I want to work with Seymour Stein - he was the co-founder of Sire Records - and I've always wanted to work with him. So I figure while I've still got teeth in my mouth let me go work with him!
''I also want to work with Tony Brown down in Nashville and do a country record, finally! I want to record all those songs I used to sing my guts out in my apartment to! It'll be out next year.''
Although Cyndi is moving away from pop she still listens to as much new music as she can and is a huge fan of Paloma Faith.
She added: ''I like Paloma Faith, I think she's awesome. But I like a lot of different kinds of music, not just one kind. I like to research music.''
Following the performance, the cast received a standing ovation and Cyndi, Jerry Mitchell and Harvey joined the actors and producers on stage to receive bouquets of flowers and a rapturous cheer from the audience.
The 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' hitmaker even danced with Matt Henry - who plays drag queen Lola - as the show's final song 'Raise You Up' played on.
'Kinky Boots' will now play for eight shows a week at the Adelphi Theatre.
