Imelda May has announced her first UK tour in over three years in support of her highly anticipated new album ‘Life Love Flesh Blood’ due for release in March 2017.
If you don’t know Imelda May, prepare to be amazed. If you are already a fan, get ready to hear her as you never have before. The truly unique artist has found a new groove, exploring blues, soul, gospel, folk, rock, sensitive acoustic, cinematic drama and explosive balladry on a set of the boldest, most personal and intimately autobiographical songs she has ever written.
Long celebrated by peers as one of the most sensational singers of contemporary music, Imelda May has made the album of her life. Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in LA and features some of the most well renowned musicians in America (the same as on T Bone’s Alison Krauss and Robert Plant’s celebrated ‘Raising Sand’ album) with guest appearances by long-time supporters; guitar hero Jeff Beck & piano maestro Jools Holland.
Taking the biggest band line up she has ever toured, the shows promise to delight both old and new fans of Imelda’s music. Featuring members of her long-time band with some additional finest musicians in the UK, the new line up brings the wonderful new material and old favourites to full colour whilst also showcasing Imelda’s unique ability to evoke the purest of emotion using her voice as her sole instrument.
It is clear that one of Ireland’s biggest exports has found a new groove.
