It was amidst all the excitement of promoting Serenade, supporting Julio Iglesias, concert touring and performing that Sony decided another album should quickly follow “Serenade” for a Christmas release. So once again, Producer Garth Porter and I sprang into gear and began the search for material. This time, we all agreed the album should change gears a bit and be more contemporary, departing somewhat from the classical feel of my previous recordings. So with that brief in mind, the final 14 tracks turned out to be a lovely mix of original, Celtic and easy listening songs – eclectic but all sitting well together as a collection. I was really happy to have another opportunity to write some tracks and also collaborate with Garth – this time I was a little more experienced and prepared for the process ahead.
My husband and manager Jon, my 2-year-old Stephanie, her nanny and I travelled to Sydney for 6 weeks to record “Believe in Love” at Studios 301. Once again, I loved every moment of it – the studio is my happy place and it was fantastic to work with Garth and and Ted again. Promotion for this album again included a busy media round and a national TV Special on the 7 network called Suzanne Clachair “Believe in Love”. It was a fantastic, exhausting, whirlwind experience of location and studio clips from dawn to dusk over about 2 weeks. I have a clear memory of my husband and I coming home at midnight after an 18-hour shoot to our sleepless toddler (“waiting for Mummy”) and desperate babysitters (my parents). We had to drive around for another hour to get her to sleep!
