Interview with HANNAH ROBINSON, songwriter for Ladyhawke, Christina Aguilera, Rachel Stevens, Annie, The Saturdays - Dec 21, 2009
“A true artist will have a clear idea of what they want to say and it's up to me to get on the page in a way that reflects their image and attitude”
In-demand songwriter Hannah Robinson has been behind some of the decade’s smartest, sharpest and most celebrated pop records, including Ladyhawke’s ‘My Delirium’ (Top 10 Australia & Top 40 UK), Rachel Stevens’ ‘Some Girls’ (Top 3 UK) and Annie’s ‘Chewing Gum’, sometimes with able assistance from pop production maestro Richard X. Teetering between alternative and mainstream, she has also written songs recorded by The Saturdays (UK Top 3), No Angels (No.1 GER), Sophie Ellis-Bextor (UK No.1) and Saint Etienne. Her position at the pop vanguard was recently confirmed by Christina Aguilera recording ‘My Delirium’ for her eagerly anticipated new record.
Robinson talks to HitQuarters about writing with Richard X, the anonymity of songwriters, fitting taboo subjects into lyrics, and is quizzed on how the sexually suggestive ‘Some Girls’ became a charity single.
