Cyndi Lauper’s last album for Epic Records, “Merry Christmas … Have A Nice Life,” is not due until Oct. 27, but she is already looking for a new label deal. “This is a new time in my life, and I think everything should be new,” says Lauper, who recently acquired a new manager, Arma Andon of Pure Management.
Lauper has been at Epic her entire solo career, since 1983’s “She’s So Unusual.” The singer, who says she is already meeting with suitors, is also in talks with NBC about a sitcom. (She won an Emmy for a guest spot on “Mad About You.”) Epic would not comment on Lauper’s departure.
“Merry Christmas” includes standards like “Silent Night,” plus originals by Lauper with co-writers, including Jan Pulsford and Rob Hyman, with whom she wrote “Time After Time.”
