Tracey Thorn, musician and author of the bestselling autobiography Bedsit Disco Queen, offers a unique insider's take on the art of singing: why and how we sing, and the voice's power to captivate

In her acclaimed autobiography Bedsit Disco Queen, Tracey Thorn recalled the highs and lows of a 30-year career in pop music. But with the touring, recording, and extraordinary anecdotes, there wasn't time for an in-depth look at what she actually did for all those years: sing. She sang with warmth and emotional honesty, sometimes while battling acute stage fright. Part memoir and part wide-ranging exploration of the art, mechanics, and spellbinding power of singing, Naked at the Albert Hall takes in Dusty Springfield, Dennis Potter, and George Eliot; Auto-tune, the microphone, and stage presence; The Streets and The X Factor. Including interviews with fellow artists such as Alison Moyet, Romy Madley-Croft, and Green Gartside of Scritti Politti, and portraits of singers in fiction as well as Tracey's real-life experiences, it offers a unique, witty, and sharply observed insider's perspective on the exhilarating joy and occasional heartache of singing.
