Ready For Love is the third English studio album by Thai pop singer Tata Young, released on August 25, 2009.The album's first single, "Ready For Love", was written by Alex Smith, Mark Taylor and Ayak Thiik and produced by André Brix Buchman from Valicon Company in Germany. It also features a track "Perfection" co-written by Leona Lewis along with many of the tracks written by internationally acclaimed songwriters.


Rhythm and blues mix with dance pop on 12 tunes from songwriters around the world.[1]

The title track, which has been airing for a couple of weeks, "feels cool and energetic like in the '60s", Tata says, saying she learned the "big voice" techniques of American R&B singers Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson. "My Bloody Valentine," written by Alex James (Alexandra Burke, Charice, Adam Lambert) and Busbee (Toni Braxton, Jonas Brothers, Alexandra Burke) will be the follow-up single. "Mission is You" and "Shine Like a Superstar" are Silom Soi 2-style rousers. "Burning Out" and "Suffocate" get melancholy. "Ugly" is a return to the catchy form of "Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy" and "Love is the Law" sounds like Madonna's "Rain". Tata calls "Boys Will Be Boys" her favourite track, and "Exposed" the "opposite of her real life." "It isn't me, but the Sony bosses in Europe said it's gonna be a hit there." It's about a small-town girl who's dumped by her lover after she becomes famous, and that's sure not our big-city Tata. Sony Music Thailand managing director Birathon Kasemsri na Ayudhaya says the way "Ready for Love" marries Asian musical styles to a European groove could signal a new trend for Asia and possibly the world.

Promotions and tours[edit]

A massive advertising campaign is pushing "Ready for Love" across Asia. Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and Japan will receive an unprecedented level of promotion for an album by a Thai pop artist.

For the first time, Tata Young will be trying to break into the Australian and European markets. She is expected to tour Melbourne, Victoria in November 2009 while her first taste of Australian audiences came in October 2009, when she performed three songs from her new album at the One Movement music festival in Perth, Western Australia.[2]
