    Is this the first we've heard of this?

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">listening to mixed tracks today from my upcoming album &quot;wilder shores&quot; out early 2017 EXCITING!</p>&mdash; Belinda Carlisle (@belindaofficial) <a href="https://twitter.com/belindaofficial/status/737566722262106114">May 31, 2016</a></blockquote>

    I do hope it's more stuff in the vein of 'Sun' and 'Goodbye Just Go', which were actually rather good.

    2017?! Glad she's putting something new out but that's ages away, your fans aren't getting any younger Lindy

    Oh shit, is this just going to be the fucking 'yoga inspired album' she was threatening a while back? I'm significantly less excited if this is just going to be 40 minutes of her doing half-arsed breathing exercises over a new age bontempi setting.

    If the tracks are already mixed, why isn't the album out until next year? Does she have a deal at the moment?

    This is the most work she's done in about FIFTEEN YEARS. Do you really think she'll be up for promotional activities without a nice little six month wine and cocaine break first?

    She is going on tour with The Go-Go's soon, so I guess that might be a reason why this is so bloody far away

    Still, that's only until August as far as I know, doesn't she want an extra 5 sales from the Xmas season RUSH?

    I hope it's a real album but I have an awful feeling it's just going to be new age CHANTING (like the Tina Turner one) :(

    It had BETTER be a real album. We haven't had a PROPER PROPER PROPER album in NEARLY TWENTY YEARS!

    As ever. I can just imagine Belinda earnestly telling them about her fucking mantra grand opus and them pissing themselves about it afterwards.

    Every time I read an article about how long Belinda's been clean for I wonder how long she's really been clean for. Probably since May 28th.

    I saw an interview with her where she confirmed it was a mantra album, but that it was structured as a pop album. She said it sounded like a pop album but you just wouldn't understand what she was saying :D

    As an unashamed Belinda and Roxette fan Breathe, what would you rate Love Doesn't Live Here out of 10?

    Probably an 8. I don't think anything on that album would be less than a 7 actually.

    You don't think she'd go to the effort of making TWO do you? :D

    I was more agog to see how capacious her velvet sleeve is.

    The album is £4.99 on iTunes as a pre-order. It's 8 songs and an acoustic version of "Heaven...". Two of the songs seem to be in English :o

    The first single ADI SHAKTI is out on iTunes - and it's exactly how you imagine, but I love it.

    It sounds like we would have had a decent pop album if she had bothered actually writing lyrics.

    People need to give this a chance because it is actually very good. Belinda realises that music doesn't have to be all pop and disco... It can also be a tool for cleansing the mind and the soul.

    For that very reason I think it's better than anything in the current top 40.
