Michelle Branch has spilled some information about her upcoming album. She switched over to the country music genre with her previous work, but she’s planning to return to her roots and write some pop songs.

Branch has been working on a “fun, creative” new album and will reportedly be going back “to her pop roots” with it. It’s supposedly going to make you remember her first CD, The Spirit Room from back in 2001. She has teased a bit about the LP saying that “the first song [she, Julian Emrey, and Jim Irvine] wrote together is…called ‘Spark.’” She’s getting ready to get down to making this album too—she says she has “11 or 12 songs ready to go right now and [is] going to go in studio in January.” She’s aiming for a release date of summer 2011. Though it’s supposedly going to be of the “pop” genre, Michelle Branch “hates putting labels on it because a good song is a good song.” That’s a smart way to look at music. Labels can cause people to pass judgment before even taking the time to listen to something, especially if they don’t like “pop.”
