Rebecca Ferguson will be visiting HMV to sign copies of her new album ‘Lady Sings The Blues’.
Rebecca Ferguson releases her eagerly anticipated new album ‘Lady Sings The Blues’. The album is Rebecca’s interpretation of songs recorded by the legendary Billie Holiday, some of which featured on Holliday’s iconic record itself titled ‘Lady Sings The Blues’. Holiday’s album and story led to the multi award winning film and record starring Diana Ross but Ferguson now brings her own experience and story to these classic songs for a new generation.
Rebecca wanted to record in a studio where Billie herself had recorded, so chose the famed Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, the legendary studio where classic recordings were also made by artists including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald. ‘Lady Sings The Blues’ is produced by Troy Miller, who has previously worked with Amy Winehouse, Rumer, Laura Mvula and Chaka Khan.
The release of ‘Lady Sings The Blues’ is accompanied by a series of seven intimate shows between February 16th and March 21st at London’s St James Theatre.
