Susan Boyle confirms album a decade after wowing Britain’s Got Talent judges
Susan Boyle is releasing a brand new album to mark a decade since she shocked the Britain’s Got Talent judges with her Les Miserables performance.
The Scot, who still lives in her childhood home in West Lothian, stunned Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan with her powerful rendition of I Dreamed A Dream back in 2009.
Having seemed to initially write Boyle off, Cowell was awestruck as Boyle sang, with Morgan admitting that it was “an incredible performance”.
And now Boyle, who is currently appearing on America’s Got Talent: The Champions , is ready to celebrate a decade in the business with a new album.
After five years away from the spotlight, the 57-year-old has said that she is “managing things a lot better” and is prepared for life in the limelight – even if being worth £20million “doesn’t matter” to her.
“I’m managing things a lot better now. It was a slow process. Everything is with me,” she told The Sun. “But I’m coping inside a lot better now and I’m ready – more than ready – for what’s coming.
“I can cope with the pressure now. I know how to control myself better. I don’t get so worked up about things. I got a lot of help and I’m managing a lot more effectively.”
Boyle also told the publication that being a multi-millionaire didn’t really faze her.
She said: “I just want to entertain people, I want to make them happy. Money doesn’t bother me.”
Boyle explained that her niece lives in the £300,000 five-bed property that she bought while she opted to stay in her mum’s house in Blackburn, West Lothian, where there are “lots of memories”.
The star also opened up about being diagnosed with Asperger’s in 2013 and her struggles with mental health, saying that is “easier” to talk about health now.
Boyle’s album TEN is available for pre-order now. It will be released on Friday, May 31
