Lisa Stansfield - Seven out on October 4th 2013
earMUSIC, the international Pop Rock division of Edel, is delighted to announce a new record deal (worldwide exc. USA and UK) with Lisa Stansfield.
Lisa Stansfield and Edel have already successfully collaborated in the past: The last album by the British artist, titled “The Moment” and released on the label ZTT, was licensed to Edel which handled all marketing and promotional activities reaching 100.000 units sold in Germany (Gold Status) and charting all over Europe.
earMUSIC and Edel are very pleased to now welcome Lisa “back home” for the release of the long awaited new studio album “Seven” on October 4th, 2013.
The last studio album “The Moment” (2005) was a successful chapter in a career filled with achievements: top 10 hits like "All Around The World", "Change", "All Woman", "Treat Me Like A Woman", "If I Hadn’t Got You" and "Someday" made Lisa one of the greatest voices of sophisticated pop music. Lisa has collected Grammy nominations, many Brit Awards, an Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award. Her performance of “I Want To Break Free” with Queen at the Freddie Mercury Tribute is one of the iconic moments of pop history.
After a long absence from the world of recorded music she is now returning in grand style.
“Seven” is an album of soulful, groovy songs like the first single "Can’t Dance" and warm pop ballads that highlight Lisa Stansfield's unique voice and will leave everybody wondering why she has waited eight years before recording it...
“Seven” is Lisa Stansfield’s 7th studio album, produced and written together with her husband and long-time song writing partner Ian Devaney (whose credits include “The Bodyguard” and “Indecent Proposal” soundtracks).
Recorded in Los Angeles and Manchester, it features the collaboration of John "JR" Robinson, known as “the most recorded drummer in history” and Grammy Award winning orchestrator Jerry Hey, both integral to the creation of Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall”, “Thriller” and “Bad”.
“Seven” also marks Lisa’s return to the international stage and confirms her status as one of Europe’s premier live performers.
