The Deep Blue

The Deep Blue is the second album from British singer/songwriter Charlotte Hatherley, released on 5 March 2007. Produced by Eric Drew Feldman, Rob Ellis and Hatherley, the album was mainly recorded in Italy, and was the first record Charlotte created since leaving Ash in January 2006. It was also the first record to be released under Hatherley's own Little Sister label.


Four singles were released from the album. "Behave" was released in December 2006, followed by "I Want You To Know" in February 2007, "Siberia" in June 2007 and "Again" in October 2007.


The Deep Blue received positive reviews and Planet Sound called it a potential Album of the Year candidate when previewing new albums of 2007. However, it only reached number 109 in the UK Albums Chart. The "Behave" EP achieved widespread critical acclaim in several musical publications, as well as being Phill Jupitus's track of the week on BBC 6 Music, but only reached number 168 in the UK Singles Chart. "I Want You To Know" reached number 108.
For Nokia Online, David Bowie reviewed the single “Behave”, writing, ‘Behave is proof that Charlotte made the right decision to go solo. The guitar part is an instant hook, that has a kind of Eno-esque quirkiness about it... Impossibly catchy, you’ll find this popping into your head when you least expect it.’
