The Greek Cypriot super star Anna Vissi, who participated 3 times in the Eurovision Song Contest, in 1980 for Greece, 1982 for Cyprus and 2006 for Greece again, is about to release a new single and a brand new album. After two and a half years of total absence from the show business, she has just presented her brand new video clip and a new song. The song is called To parelthon mu(My past) and it is featured in the original soundtrack of a new Greek movie Bank Bang. Yesterday she talked exclusively about her projects to come to Themis Giorgadas, a famous presenter of the Greek music channel Mad TV

Anna talked about her long awaited new album, which will be released in November this year. She said, that the album is almost ready, 4 tracks are still in the production stage. This album has been entirely produced in Los Angeles with the collaboration of some very famous producers such as Pat Leonard, Glen Ballard and Greg Ladanyi and it will include Greek and English tracks. Anna said, that the sound of her new cd will be in the style of the group Evanesence. The title of the album remains still unknown, since no final decision has been taken about it.

As to her long absence after her participation in the 2006 Eurovision Contest until today, Anna said, that she “was recharging her batteries” with new songs.
