Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia
Tracey Thorn in conversation with Nadine O'Regan
As an ex-Marine Girl, singer in Everything But the Girl and intermittent solo artist, Thorn has enjoyed a long and successful career though her fear of performing live means she hasn't stepped on stage in 15 years. This tricky relationship with her art brings a crucial tension to Naked at the Albert Hall, a terrific reflection on singing, performance and the anatomy of the voice. Music is everything to Thorn and she doesn't take her talent for granted. Likewise, her Disco Bedsit Queen began with her, a terminally shy 16-year-old, auditioning for her first band from inside a wardrobe. In Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia, she fills in some of the gaps.
Joining Tracey is journalist and broadcaster Nadine O’Regan.
