Alex visited the official charts studios in London on March 15th where she spoke about her current NO.2 position in the official midweeks charts, the general sound of the new album, her biggest influences for the album and lots more.
“I’ve been out of the game for a year and a half recording [my] second album and to come back and for [Elephant] to be at Number 2 at this stage is a really big achievement,” she said. “I’m really grateful to all of those who have supported me, but most of all my amazing fans who go so hard for me, it’s unreal!”
“It’s very nerve racking, I’m very nervous full stop!,” she said. “But my mum always says to me ‘having nerves shows that you care’, so I guess I’ll worry the day that the nerves go away! Now? I want them to stay, right here in my heart.”
To find out where she ends up on the charts (hopefully that NO.1 slot) – tune in to Radio 1′s “Official Chart Show” on Sunday, March 18th at 7pm!
