She’s currently serving as a judge on “Golos”, the Russian edition of the international singing franchise “The Voice”.
And on on Sunday songstress Polina Gagarina gave this season’s contestants even more reason to idolize her as she released 9, her first large-scale release in the past six years.
“The new album is frank, mature and very holistic in nature,” she writes on her official web site. “I got to collect and realize the most unexpected and daring ideas, which I hope my fans will appreciate.”

Within moments of its release on Sunday the album shot to #1 on Russian iTunes, knocking Adele’s 25 off the top spot — and for good reason.
The ten-track album — among the most anticipated LPs of the year in Russia — skips effortlessly from pop-rock to jazz-funk to trip-hop.
Fans who only know the feel-good Polina from “A Million Voices” will quickly see that she has mixed it up, showing that she can’t be defined by genre let alone a single track.
The 29-year old beauty performed “Dance With Me” — one of the new tracks — live at a VK event in Moscow on September 11. This mother-of-one does not need Auto-Tune to nail a tune.
The titular 9 on the album cover wasn’t a random selection.
“I chose the figure, which is a symbol of man’s spiritual maturity, in terms of numbers,” she said on release day. “It means wisdom, enlightenment and subtle intuition.”
