The wait is over

Ann Singer touches on pertinent issues on her sophomore album.

08 November 2019 | Art and Entertainment


Ann singer has been having a pretty impressive and progressive time in her career with her music and personal brand.

Now admit it, you cannot deny her star status right now, because we have all witnessed her work ethic that continues to push her up the ranks.

From scooping four awards at the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) with her first album, to signing to South Africa’s Mabala Noise Entertainment and recently being successfully showcased at the International Modelling and Talent Association (IMTA) in South Africa, she will be jetting off to New York next year. The rest of the world has been keeping up with her and tjil is here to ride along with her.

She independently released her second album titled Sanity last week, after not releasing a fully-fledged album in about three years.

“I dropped my debut album in November 2015 and after that I just felt like I was thrown into the deep end.

“I was very busy and therefore there was no time to get into studio to work on a project,” she said.

After her contract ended with Deal Done Recordz, she got into another deal with Mabala Noise Entertainment.

“Of course that had its perks. It was exciting, having to go to South Africa often and performing at the Durban July.

“We did get to work on some material with Mabala Noise Entertainment, but my contract is over, so that work does not belong to me,” she said.

Asked what is going to happen to that material, Singer said she does not know, but she is at a point where she really just wants to move on.

“I am excited because I do not have any contractual obligations anymore. I am a free creative now. Sanity was funded by me.”

She spoke highly of her debut album Bullet Proof, but she maintains that with Sanity she intends to take her music career to greater heights. With her sophomore album, her goal is to achieve incredible things, more than she would be able to comprehend, imagine, dream, fathom or visualise.

“Bullet Proof was an incredible album; it is feeding me till today, and has taken me to so many incredible places.

“With my latest project, I aspire for a similar accomplishment, but more,” she said.

Her new album explores themes such as depression and anxiety, and she hopes it will bring comfort to those nursing their mental health.
