Annie Lennox undergoes back surgery

Singer is currently recovering at home

Annie Lennox undergoes back surgery
Annie Lennox has undergone back surgery to release an impinged nerve after she recently suffered a back spasm in Mexico.

The former Eurythmics singer was attending an Aids conference in Mexico when she suffered the spasm, then was flown back to the UK to go under the knife, reports BBC News.

Lennox's spokesperson said that the singer was recovering in her London home and that the surgery went to plan. Lennox said that the spasm caused her to feel "more pain than I've ever experienced in my life".

She also added that she "felt a bit like Elizabeth Taylor" as she was wheeled off the aeroplane when she arrived in the UK.

The release of Lennox's forthcoming compilation album, 'The Annie Lennox Collection', has been postponed until next year after initially being scheduled for release on September 15.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Keane's Tom Chaplin has written a song for Annie Lennox, 'Pattern Of My Life', which will feature on the album.
