 Louise elbowed?

 Louise has been released from her contract with EMI records, worldpop has learned. As a member of Eternal and later as a solo artist, Louise enjoyed 10 successful years at the label and celebrated 16 consecutive Top 20 hits.

 Louise's last album with EMI, Elbow Beach spawned two hit singles, Two Faced and Beautiful Inside.

 She is still signed to First Avenue and will be recording her fifth album with them. 'She was always signed to First Avenue Records and distributed through EMI,' a spokeswoman for the singer tells worldpop. 'Now we're looking for a new distribution deal but don't worry, there's still new and exciting things to come from her.'
