Katharine McPhee is heading back into the studio to record and she’s teaming up with a few high profile songwriters.
For her latest studio album—the first since 2010’s Unbroken–McPhee is working with Salaam Remi, who’s worked with Fergie and Amy Winehouse; Sia, who wrote Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Beyoncé’s new H&M approved song, “Standing On The Sun,” and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who worked on Adele‘s 21.
McPhee is also writing with Pink scribe Linda Perry, which is a little nerve-wracking for the American Idol-alum.
I’m going in the studio tomorrow with Linda Perry! I’m kinda nervous!!!
