Tanita Tikaram, the voice that defined a generation just returned with her first album in eight years - 'Can't Go Back'! The album features some of America's most exciting modern soul musicians, and was lovingly crafted by producer Paul Bryan (Aimee Mann, Grant Lee Phillips, Nina Nastasia) at Sound Factory in Los Angeles.

"I've always wanted to write a song like 'Dust On My Shoes', which will be the first single and is a simple freedom song.  The word 'freedom' becomes more and more important to me - in every choice , every political & moral decision and the attempt to live in a free way I find very moving. Hopefully, on the album you hear it in the playing, too!! 'Can't go Back' is the song that best sums up the spirit of the album ...the desire to live in the moment & the temptation to revise the past. I cant wait to get out there and start playing the new songs to everyone!"(Tanita Tikaram)
