The 53-year-old songwriter recorded 50 Words For Snow along with her latest release, Director's Cut which was released in May.

The Wuthering Heights hit maker also denied being a perfectionist in the recording studio "I don't think I am," adding "people have said this, but I don't think I really want anything to be perfect. I think it's important that things are flawed."
