LULU SIGNS A MAJOR DEAL WITH DECCA RECORDS, CELEBRATING 50 YEARS AS A RECORDING ARTIST BY RETURNING TO HER FIRST EVER LABEL.
HER BRAND NEW ALBUM “MAKING LIFE RHYME” WILL BE RELEASED ON MARCH 30.
LULU has signed a new deal with Decca Records, the company to which she first signed at the tender age of 15.
The forthcoming album “Making Life Rhyme” is Lulu’s first ever complete collection of self penned songs and marks a departure for the legendary singer/songwriter, capturing the artist during a period of huge change.
The album was recorded in London and features lyrics which are at once highly confessional, questioning and ultimately redemptive, written by an artist who recognizes that, “I need a little peace but I never seem to find the space – having trouble getting to sleep cos the party is always at my place”.
The legendary singer, who has worked with artists as disparate as David Bowie, The Beach Boys, Bobby Womack, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Take That, Jools Holland, Arif Mardin, Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and Barry Gibb will tour the UK this year. The tour opens on May 10 and includes a major London date at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane on May 17.
Lulu said today: “I’m really proud of this record. I’ve made a lot of records over the years but this one comes at a time in my life when I’m re evaluating everything. Life changes, people change, and this album sums up what I see as my place in the world at this time. For that reason it’s especially gratifying to me that the album will appear on Decca, my first ever label”.
President of Decca Records Group, Dickon Stainer, comments: “We are delighted to welcome such an iconic singer back to Decca, where she started her career”.
