THE NETHERLANDS – It is clear that Anouk is one of the power women in the Netherlands. The rock singer always stands her ground, expresses her opinion and does not apologize for that.
So it’s extra nice that Netherlands’ own power woman pays tribute to inspiring women all over the world. The video clip of her new song It’s A New Day is out. In the video, Anouk takes on the role of 27 iconic women. Think of Michelle Obama, Coco Chanel, Marie Curie, Serena Williams and even a fictional woman: Mona Lisa.
“A few of these women are the first to receive recognition in their area of expertise. Others had the courage to stand up for themselves and take the first step toward gender equality. And others are current leaders and activists.”
What do all these women have in common? “They all fight for what they believe in and are therefore an example for today’s society and an inspiration for young women around the world,” said Anouk.
The discography Dutch singer-songwriter Anouk consists of eight studio albums, four live albums, one compilation album, twenty-eight singles as a solo artist, two singles as a featured artist, five promotional singles and five video albums.
Anouk’s debut single, “Mood Indigo”, was released in 1996 and became a moderate hit in her native Netherlands. Its follow-up, “Nobody’s Wife”, was released the following year. After peaking at number two on the Dutch Top 40, the single became a European hit, entering the top ten in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. Both singles were included in her first studio album. Titled Together Alone, it topped the Dutch Albums Chart and also achieved commercial success across Europe.
With her second album, Urban Solitude, Anouk failed to repeat her international success, but consolidated her career in the Netherlands and in Flanders. As of today, she has achieved eight number-one albums in her country, including the compilation Lost Tracks, featuring B-sides and alternate versions of her previous hits, and the live album Live at Gelredome, released in 2008.
