With production by super producers Fraser T Smith, Rodney Jerkins, TMS and Oak, last year’s X-Factor runner up Fleur East releases her eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Love, Sax and Flashbacks’. The record was preceded by enormous pop/funk smash ‘Sax’. Watch the video below:
From the very beginning Fleur confidently demands ‘give it to me’, before the slick production of Norwegian duo Electric kicks in to high gear.
The stomping bassline is accompanied by sprightly guitar riffs, clapping, call-and-response chants, an instantly memorable saxophone hook and an explosive chorus. The song, written by Fleur alongside Electric, JHart and Camille Purcell is a triumphant statement that we are witnessing the emergence of a superstar.
‘Sax’ is the first single to be taken from Fleur’s debut album due out this November. Fleur has spent the last eight months writing and recording the record working with luminary producers such as Fraser T Smith, Rodney Jerkins, TMS and Oak. The video for ‘Sax’ was shot recently in LA and will premiere soon.
Fleur East is one the UK’s hottest rising talents. As one of the X Factor’s most memorable stars, Fleur kept the audience and judges captivated during the 2014 series with her varied performances and undeniable stage presence. Under the mentorship of Simon Cowell her show stopping performance of Uptown Funk was arguably the highlight of the whole series, peaking at Number 1 on iTunes.
