Alesha Dixon makes a pop comeback after five years away


‘I want them to see that’s where mummy started’: Alesha Dixon makes a pop comeback to inspire her daughters after five years away from the music scene

Alesha Dixon has made a pop comeback with her new single War, which is her first music release for five years. 

The Boy Does Nothing singer, 41, has cited her daughters as the ones who inspired her to make the return, telling The Mirror: ‘I can’t tell my kids to go for their dreams if I’m sitting back in fear and not going for my own.’ 

The mother-of-two wanted to lead by example for her daughters, six-year-old Azura and one-year-old Anaya.

‘They obviously see me on TV working on various shows but I want them to see me doing my main passion which has always been music and performing. I want them to see that’s where mummy started.’ 

Alesha’s career in the music industry started when she was 21, when she was in the pop girl group Mis-Teeq. 

The Scandalous singers boasted seven top 10 singles and two top 10 albums back in the day, before Alesha embarked on a solo career.

As well as being a singer, she also has appeared as a judge Strictly Come Dancing, The Greatest Dancer and Britain’s Got Talent. 

The new song, War, is about mental health, and Alesha said she wanted to put it out with no promo or fanfare, saying she is most excited about getting out and performing, and isn’t putting pressure on herself to create an album. 

Despite being nervous about relaunching her career, she wanted to show her daughters how to be fearless, saying: ‘I’ve been working on new music for a couple of years. I haven’t finished it yet but you can put things off and worry and overthink but actually life is too short.’

Alesha took to Instagram last week to share the news of the release, and captioned the post: ‘It’s been so nice sharing for the first time in 5 years, particularly with a song that is so personal. 

‘Music is straight up therapy! Grateful for this outlet! Thank you @applemusic for your support with ‘WAR’ and thank you for listening!’  

The shared the image of the single cover, where she posed against a brick wall looking very cool in an orange two piece shrugged off her shoulders, a black tank top and quirky sunglasses.
