Annie Lenox is and has always been a survivor. Following the disbandment of Eurythmics in 1991, vocalist Annie Lennox began a solo career that rivaled Eurythmics' in terms of crossover popularity.
Annie Lenox was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. Annie Lennox began playing music as child, learning how to play both the piano and flute. In her late teens, Annie Lenox won a scholarship to London's Royal Academy of Music but she dropped out of the school before she took her finals. For the next several years, Annie Lenox worked around London, performing various jobs during the day and singing at night. In the late '70s, Annie Lenox met guitarist Dave Stewart through a friend. Stewart, who had previously played with Longdancer, asked Lennox to join a new band he was forming with a songwriter named Peet Coombes. The band was named the Tourists, and they released three albums between 1979 and 1980 and scored a number four U.K. hit with a cover of Dusty Springfield's "I Only Want to Be With You."
Annie Lenox was now aboard the train she would eventally ride to stardom. While they were collaborating together in the Tourists, Lennox and Stewart became lovers. Soon, tensions within the band grew and by 1980, the pair had left the band to begin Eurythmics. During the early '80s, the sleek synth pop of Eurythmics became one of the most popular sounds of new wave, racking up a number of hits in both the U.S. and U.K., including "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," "Love Is a Stranger," "Who's That Girl," and "Here Comes the Rain Again." Midway through their career, Eurythmics began pursuing a harder, more straightforward rock & roll sound.
Annie Lenox was sensing it was time for a change. In 1990, following the release of Eurythmics' commercial disappointment We Too Are One, Annie Lennox announced that she was taking a two-year sabbatical to have a child. During this time, the group quietly dissolved, Annie Lennox had a baby, and she began working on her first solo album. Diva, her solo debut, arrived in 1992 and showcased a calmer, more mature vocalist designed to cross over into the adult contemporary audience. On the strength of the singles "Walking on Broken Glass" (number 14) and "Why" (number 34), Diva sold over two million copies in the U.S. alone; the album was also nominated for three Grammy awards.
Annie Lennox delivered her second solo album, a covers collection entitled Medusa, in 1995. Peaking at number 11, Medusa spawned the hit single "No More I Love You's," and went platinum by the end of 1995.
Annie Lenox couldn't forget her roots. In 1997 she re-recorded the Eurythmics track "Angel" for the Diana, Princess of Wales tribute album. In 1998 - following the death of a mutual friend (former The Tourists leader singer/songwriter Peet Coombes) - she re-established contact with Dave Stewart and by 1999, Eurythmics had reformed for the album Peace. In 2003 she released her third solo album, Bare.
Annie Lennox won the Academy Award for Best Song in 2004 for "Into The West" from the film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King at the 76th Academy Awards. She had previously recorded "Use Well the Days" for the movie, which incorporates numerous quotations from Tolkien in its lyrics. This song was not used in the film, but appears on a bonus DVD included with the "special edition" of the movie's soundtrack CD.
In July 2005, Annie Lennox performed at Live 8 in Hyde Park, London. She also made a memorable appearance with David Bowie and the surviving members of Queen at 1992's Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at London's Wembley Stadium, performing "Under Pressure".
Annie Lennox and Stewart later collaborated on two new pieces for their Eurythmics hits album, Ultimate Collection, one of which, "I've Got a Life", was released as a single on October 31, 2005.
Annie Lenox rocks on. In 2006, "Annie is currently busy writing and recording songs to prepare for the next album, which will be her last whilst she is still contracted to BMG...". The new album will be called Venus and will feature a duo with James Brown.
