Talking about the project in the Lancashire Telegraph she said.
“I thought they were so interesting with female voices, and you heard the lyrics in a different way, and I thought I’d like to do that with a couple of my favourite songs — and these are indeed my favourite songs. I’m a massive fan of Joy Division, I love their music — particularly the lyrics.”
The Rawtenstall actress has recorded Joy Division’s Isolation and former Smiths star Morrissey’s Life Is A Pigsty. She previously released an album of covers which featured a duet with Robbie Williams.
“At the moment I’ve no plans to release a physical copy, but I’m going to see how it goes on iTunes first.”
“I’ve got decent people playing on it and I got a very good producer.”
She is also considering further songs by space-rock veterans Hawkwind and ’80s electronic act Cabaret Voltaire.
“Most people think when I say I’ve done a couple of songs that it’s going to be Judy Garland or Gracie Fields, so it comes as a bit of a surprise. But that’s the music that I really like.”
