Ricki-Lee Coulter has returned from a three-month trip to the United States with a “NEW sound, NEW look, NEW woman to set loose on you all.”

The pop star wrote about her “marathon of studio sessions” on her MySpace page. She called the trip “exhausting,” but adds that the experience “was an amazing adventure.”

But the good news for fans is that all the hard work wasn’t in vain. A new single “isn’t too far away at all,” with the album to follow.
