Background

Out of the Woods marked Thorn's full-time return to the music scene after an absence of over six years. It was released on 20 March 2007 in the U.S. on Astralwerks.

Thorn told Billboard magazine about the recording of the album:[7]

"When I started this album, I was thinking, 'Well, alright, I want to make a quirky little record, a little bit acoustic, a little bit dance... I also thought I was going to do a lot of covers, because I hadn't written anything in a long time. But once I started, I found myself writing more songs and collaborating with people. When the record was finished, I was quite startled. I thought, 'Wow, I made a pop record without really meaning to.'"
