Northern Ireland singer Annabelle has released her debut EP, Back to You. We asked her the BIG questions . . .
Speaking about the new tracks, she says, "The songs mainly focus on relationships, both romantic and friendships. I always wanted to release relatable music that would be uplifting and make people want to get up and dance!
"Personally, I feel this EP will relate to many people's relationships and will empower men and woman to be themselves and not to care what anyone else thinks of them.
"Part of the EP touches on lost relationships and I felt this was important to focus on as not all relationships are perfect, some need work and others are just, let’s face it, toxic (as I well know from personal experience).

"But the main message of this EP is that you can’t let broken relationships affect you forever, you’ve got to `pick yourself up’ cause `you’re more than enough’. I Hope everyone enjoys this EP as much as I’ve enjoyed making it"
