Mixed Emotions is the third studio album by Beverley Craven, released in 1999. The album was released after a 5-year hiatus, in which Craven gave birth to two daughters and took time off to take care of her three children.


On this album she did not collaborate with the producer of her previous two albums, Paul Samwell-Smith, and instead Craven fully produced the release.

The lead single, "I Miss You", was released as a promo single and a videoclip was made for it. However, the record label refused to release the single commercially[ citation needed ]. The album received mixed reviews and it charted at #46 in the UK Albums Chart, staying 2 weeks in the Top 75. Craven made a small tour around the UK to support the album.

No further singles were released from the album, and Craven parted ways with her label Epic Records shortly after. She disappeared from the music scene for ten years before returning in 2009 with her fourth album Close To Home .

Two songs on the album were originally written for film scores, "I Miss You" for the 1996 film The Adventures of Pinocchio , and "We Found a Place" for the 1998 film The Theory of Flight . Both were rejected, however, and not used in the films[ citation needed ].
