Angel with an Attitude is the sixth studio album released by British recording artist Samantha Fox.

Album information[edit]

Angel with an Attitude was Fox's first studio album in seven years, following 1998's 21st Century Fox. Fox wrote "Angel With An Attitude" after a trying court case with her father, Patrick Fox, who had embezzled over £1 million from her accounts. Fox describes the title track as one of the deepest songs she ever wrote.[1]

Fox's new manager, Myra Stratton, encouraged her take a two-year break from music during which time Fox wrote the rest of the album, gaining inspiration from her and Stratton's growing relationship.[2] In the course of working on her autobiography, Fox realized that she had crossed an important chapter in her life, and began to commit her life stories to verse.[3] According to Fox the lyrics "show my weakness, joy, moments of total euphoria, but also sadness. These words simply flowed from my heart."[4] The songs reflect her despondency over past troubles as well as her ambition to overcome.[5] The work was a progression from her earlier, less serious recordings as Fox sought to apply her experiences as a mature woman to the album.[5] As a result, she says, this album comes the closest to reflecting who she really is.[3]

Fox describes the album as a "blend of rock with electronic sounds." [4] She recorded it in Montreal for Canadian label La Chapelle.[6]

To promote the album, Fox filmed a music video for title track in Montreal. The clip features Fox dressed as an angel in a church. The video debuted on Canadian music channel MusiMax.[7]

The album includes a bonus track called "Time", a UK garage song produced by EEDB that features The Flirtations. This number was originally released without Fox's vocals in 2003.[8]

The album was released on CD in Australia & New Zealand in 2007 with a remix of Fox's 1986 hit "Touch Me" added as another bonus. This version became available to download internationally in February 2009.[5][9]

On 28 January 2009 Fox digitally released a collection of five remixes from the album.[10]
