British pop sensation, Natasha Bedingfield, stripped down to her finest essentials—her multi-octave ranging voice—last night at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. The singer/songwriter gave fans a full on preview of the tracks they can expect to hear on her new album, Strip Me.

Bedingfield graced the stage looking glam in a grey, spaghetti-strapped party dress, donning a gold ball necklace, and matching open-toed pumps. She bounced around the platform full of energy, immediately charming the crowd with her voice. This was her first time showcasing a new album for an audience, she shared. To be in such an intimate setting, she noted, was a relief.

Throughout the night, a number of new singles were introduced with a little back-story as to the meaning behind the music and how the songs came to be written. Bedingfield even expressed that she titled the album “Strip Me” because she wanted to strip away the layers, and allow people to know the real her.

The album infuses a combination of soulful melodies, pop, and even an island-tinged track.  “No Mozart” has a different feel than most of Bedingfield’s upbeat tracks, giving more of a melodic R&B tone where her vocals shined as she sung the chorus. On“Weightless”, a hopeful tune about being free and having no limitations, Bedingfield takes the listener on a journey of hope, with a hint of island flavor.  Her favorite track on the new album, professed the pop star, this one is sure to be beloved among the fans as well. Generally, when artists explore musical areas unfamiliar to their fanbase it can result in project failure.  But because Natasha infuses her musical transition and evolvement so artistically and effortlessly, the fans will not only embrace this fresh, new sound on her album, she’ll more than likely gain plenty new supporters due to her music’s personal revelations of who she really is.

To the crowd’s delight she rounded out her set by singing familiar hits “These Words” and “Pocket Full of Sunshine.” The newly released “Touch” had the crowd amped and ready to move along as Bedingfield, still in her pumps after a 10-song set, danced a little two-step across the stage. She closed the performance singing her biggest hit to date, “Unwritten”—her voice echoing throughout the building, leaving fans yearning for an encore.

Although one was not provided, fans won’t have to wait too long to enjoy her new music. Strip Me will be in stores right in time for the holiday season, on December 7.
