Christina "gave birth" to her new music

Christina Aguilera claims making her latest album was the same as being pregnant - twice. The sexy singer recently put the finishing touches to latest offering 'Back To Basics' - the follow-up to 2002's hugely successful 'Stripped' - and she admits recording the LP felt like she was nurturing a new life into the world. She said: "I feel like I've been pregnant for 18 months - it's been tough." Aguilera has revealed the album is heavily influence by early jazz, as well as her favourite pop and soul records from her childhood. She added: "We dived headfirst into a 20s and 30s vibe. We have a song that sounds like you've just walked into a 20s burlesque club. There's a lot of stuff that people haven't heard from me before. On one song, I'm just above the mike. There's no reverb and no effects. No gimmicks at all - nothing." However, despite the change of direction, Christina, famed for her raunchy stage antics, insists people will still be able to get down and dirty to her new tracks. She told America's Rolling Stone magazine: "The album has a throwback style using horn samples so it sounds gritty and old. But we've been able to splice it into something that people can still dance to in the clubs." [UK-Flava] Thanks to CMM for pics!
