Katie Melua has confirmed details of a new album.

‘Album No.8’ will arrive on October 16, marking the singer-songwriter’s first full-length effort since 2016’s ‘In Winter’. The announcement arrives in conjunction with the release of the gorgeously cinematic video for lead single A Love Like That, which complements the track’s swooning jazz section and Melua’s slinky vocals. Check it out below, alongside the new album’s tracklist and artwork.

She said:

“This song is asking the essential timeless question about mad love, ‘How do you make a love like that last?’ But before it became about love between a couple, it started its life centred on my relationship with work and the stamina required to keep being an artist in the music industry. It was only after my co-composer Sam Dixon and I wrapped our session, that I retreated to a cottage in the Cotswolds for three weeks to wrestle with the song’s lyrics. A Love Like That continues a narrative that is across the new album. And in the context of love - it is about having the courage to speak openly and freely.” 

Katie Melua is set to head out on an extensive UK and Ireland tour throughout the autumn. However, it is uncertain if all dates will go ahead as planned due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Keep up to date in real time with new information via Stereoboard.
