"It's been a while," Sullivan said, as she performed to a sold-out crowd at KOKO in London's Camden Palace. During her show, the singer-songwriter went through her library of soulful hits like "Need U Bad," "Lion, Tigers & Bears" and "Bust Your Windows," as well as a rendition of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."
She also confirmed work on a third album, Mona Lisa, and previewed a new song, "Masterpiece." According to Yahoo! UK, Sullivan told the London crowd that "prayer and inner strength" helped in her return to music, and the track she previewed might reflect her new outlook. The song includes the lyric, "Every part of me is beautiful, I'm a work of art."
Fans can expect to hear a full-length single sometime soon, Sullivan reportedly said.
The 26-year-old Philly native announced her hiatus in January of 2011 in order to "figure some things out," she said at the time.
Sullivan released her Fearless debut in 2008 and earned a Grammy nomination for "Need U Bad." The LP was followed up by Love Me Back two years later. Both projects sold more than 500,000 copies.
