Melissa Etheridge Receiving Awards, Gears Up New Album



Melissa Etheridge has quite a year through winning Oscar, being honored and getting ready for next album.

After gloomy years following her breast cancer treatment, Melissa Etheridge sheds the dark cloud with winning, honorary, and new record.

Her first in three years, Melissa predicts that the record will be out somewhere between October and December this year. Recently winning an Oscar, has given Melissa the gasoline needed to gear up her tenth studio album. "I was recording my new album in between rehearsing for the Oscars. So I would record for seven hours, go and rehearse for the Oscars, and then come back and record," she said. "There are very personal things on the album, including one of the greatest love songs I have ever written. These songs are 100 per cent truthful about me and how I am feeling."

She will also be honored in ASCAP Pop Music Awards on April 18. Held in Kodak Theatre, LA the event entitles her to receive Founders Award. Upon this she said, "I have never had an honor like this where folks get up and pay tribute. It makes me feel like I'm old, but as long as everyone knows I'm at a halfway point, then it's good. I have been on the other side. I have paid tribute to many artists, so it is a big honor."

Melissa won Best Original Song for "I Need To Wake Up" in 2007 Academy Awards. The song is part of Al Gore's documentary titled "An Inconvenient Truth". She will support the US former vice president again in the Live Earth Concert on July 7.
