From the very lowest moment in her life the extraordinarily talented Rebecca Ferguson has produced a breathtaking new album, ‘Superwoman’. It is set to be released 14th October and her first single ‘Bones’ will be available from 2ndSeptember (impacting 7th October).
Forged from heartbreak and a tale of lover’s abandonment combined with the bittersweet joy of giving birth to his child, ‘Superwoman’ is infused with the strength of a woman who has finally taken control. Rebecca says of the new release: “It’s my most personal album ever and it’s brought me to a place in my life where I feel strong. I called it Superwoman because I learnt to embrace my vulnerability and accept it as a strength.”
The new album was produced by Troy Miller (Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse), and features collaborators such as Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding, James Bay) and Negin Djafari (Miley Cyrus).
One of the most distinctive voices in pop, Rebecca has previously won critical acclaim for taking on the Billie Holiday songbook in previous release ‘Lady Sings The Blues’. This is her fourth album, something not many ‘talent show’ contestants can say, but from the off there was always something intrinsically sincere about Rebecca’s delivery that set her apart from everyone else. Since her break on X Factor six years ago, the once shy and insecure artist has gone on to win fans on both sides of the Atlantic, touring Britain, Europe and America winning plaudits from Adele and comparisons to her heroes Macy Gray and Aretha Franklin.
