LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Israeli pop singer-actress Sivan Gold, who appeared on "Survivor Israel" in 2007, is announcing she is in development on her second album, "The Project of Sivan." The album is expected to release in the summer of 2015 and have 12 tracks. It will be recorded in Los Angeles and feature Gold collaborating with songwriter Doron Gal, who wrote the Eurovision Song Contest finalist hit "Find A Way" by Ran Sandler.

"The music in Israel is very different from here," Gold said. "I believe I can find a way to fit the American market. The album is more about love, relationships, all the normal stuff for a lady, which are universal themes that translate in any language."

The album will have an eclectic blend of themes and instrumentation. Some of its lyrics are already written and are being translated to have a more American appeal. Gold, who is influenced by Alicia Keys, says the first single from "The Project of Sivan" may release this summer.

"Sivan's innate gift for singing rivals even the most popular entertainers in Israel at the moment," Gal said. "Her pitch is near perfect, and her voice resonates with the listener's heart strings. Because she is an actress too, once she gets on stage or into the recording booth, she comes alive."

Gold's first album was "When Birds Fly" and she's performed live on TV on Music Channel 24, Channel 10 and Channel 2 in Israel. She's performed on Radio Tel Aviv, Radio FM, Radio Jerusalem, Radio Haife, Radio South and at the Golda, Bialik and Zavta venues in Tel Aviv.

As an actress, she's appeared on the TV series "Michaela," "Lior Shlien," "Katav Plili" and "Star Born." Gold's film credits include "Love in the First Time," "First Time Doesn't Count," "The Street of Yehiel," "Unavailable People" and "Kavod."

"The Project of Sivan" is expected to release on iMusic and on Orange for mobile devices.
