Lucy Rose has announced details of a new album for the Summer. ‘Work It Out’ is released on the 6th July through Columbia Records. It features her recent, Radio 1 playlisted returning single ‘Our Eyes’, and will coincide with the release of a second single, ‘Like An Arrow’ on the same date.
Recorded at Snap Studios in London, ‘Work It Out’ enters a whole new sonic space for the young Warwickshire musician. Where debut album, 2012’s ‘Like I Used To’, introduced a fascinatingly assured acoustic artist, rich of melody and deft of touch, ‘Work It Out’ is the sound of Lucy Rose creating a bold new context for that voice. No apologies. The acoustic guitar remains present, but there’s nothing folk or shy about this record. It’s all Lucy Rose.
Produced by Rich Cooper (Banks, Mystery Jets, Josef Salvat), Lucy has written a collection of songs that add vivid colour, fizz, and texture to her original sound. She incorporates a healthy dose of Summer into the music, and it pushes her forcefully into a different lane without removing her wholesale from the last one.
Her voice, the secret weapon of Bombay Bicycle Club’s recordings, shines throughout, but it’s both the punchy directness of these compositions and the soaring electronic flourishes that positions Work It Out as one of the most intriguing of 2015 to date.
“This record, it’s hopefully going to sort a few things out. Who am I. what I do. It’s direct. I love it.” – Lucy Rose
