Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has reunited the band a year after she stopped singing to pursue an acting career.
Last March (09) the star revealed she was hanging up her microphone to concentrate on chasing TV and movie roles, after landing a part in U.S. series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Revealing she was disillusioned with the state of the music industry, Manson complained, "I'm 42. I have been in bands since I was 15. There gets to a point where you are stepping out in front of 100,000 people and your blood pressure doesn't change."
But she appears to be preparing a surprise for fans, revealing in a post on her Facebook page that she recently spent time in the studio with former Garbage bandmates Steve Marker, Duke Erickson and Butch Vig, who won a Grammy Award on Sunday for his work producing Green Day album 21st Century Breakdown.
She wrote, "Guess who I just spent a week in the studio with? Would you be pleased if I said one of them was called Steve and one of them was called Duke and another was a Grammy-winning producer?"
