How it all began...

The seeds for what was to become Amanda Lear's 15th studio album were sewn in summer 2008, following a chance meeting between Amanda and singer/songwriter/producer, Deadstar at a cafe in Paris.

Both had the same vision; to create a bespoke double CD album (the first in Amanda’s prestigious career) combining a total of sixteen live session musicians on a lounge inspired CD 1 (“For The Heart”) offset against the pulsating beats of the dance genre on CD 2 (“For The Feet”).

The album would contain classic songs that were of sentiment to Amanda plus a number of original new songs co-written by Amanda and Deadstar.  A stylish and classy album which married the arrangement talents of Nerio Poggi with the unmistakable voice of Amanda; this album gave Amanda the opportunity to be more herself, injecting her heart and soul into every recording.

Recordings began in November 2008 at studios in Rome and Paris.  The first tracks to be recorded were “Someone Else’s Eyes” a ballad duet with Deadstar and “Doin’ Fine”, with others following over the next few months.  Once complete, the album was previewed at the 2009 Midem conference to gauge industry feedback and reactions.

It was good!  “Someone Else’s Eyes” received unanimous praise and support and was naturally selected to be the lead single from the album.  “Doin’ Fine” was also positively supported and is a firm favourite of the JGM team.

Videos were shot for both “Doin’ Fine” and “Someone Else’s Eyes” and the latter was released as single in September 2009 a month ahead of the album release date on 16th October.  Three years had passed since Amanda’s last album in 2006 and “Brief Encounters” showcased a whole new musical persona for Amanda in an illustrious career that has spanned over 40 years and counting.
