2016 release, the seventh album from the Georgian-British singer, songwriter and musician. For In Winter, Melua went back to her native Georgia to record an album with the Gori Women's Choir, a native Georgian all-woman singing troupe. In Winter marks a significant new chapter in her creative evolution. Unlike her prior releases, In Winter sees Katie taking over the reigns as creative director, principal songwriter, recording artist, and producer, to create an album that is very much of her own making. The album is focused on exploring the themes of Winter, both festive and personal. For many Winter is bitter-sweet, full of feelings of love, family, gifting, magic, warmth, and celebration, but equally: melancholy, regret, dashed hopes, a longing to return home, and, of course, the cold. The creation of 'In Winter' has also provided Melua the opportunity to engage in a far richer perspective on 2 different cultures that are so close to her: the West and the ex-Soviet Union. She didn't only record the album in Gori, Georgia (her country of birth), but has also been drawing from the rich traditions of carols and folk-tales from the region.
