Petula Clark reveals video for ‘Sacrifice My Heart’ from Album ‘From Now On’ released 16th September

With three Grammy Awards and millions of sales to her name, Petula Clark is the iconic artist behind countless huge global hits including ‘Downtown’, ‘I Know A Place’, ‘My Love’, ‘This Is My Song’ and ‘I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love’. Still blessed with a continuing love for creating music and an ability to inspire audiences all over the world, her career is a story that new artists can only aspire to emulate.

The latest chapter in Petula Clark’s enduring career comes with first single ‘Sacrifice My Heart’, from brand new studio album titled ‘From Now On’.  Despite a charting career spanning 60 years, this is the first promotional video ever that Petula Clark has ever made – a fascinating fact considering that not only has she been an Iconic singer for that time, but also a star of the screen.

‘Sacrifice My Heart’ is an electronically-charged, shimmering gem of a song, where Clark’s voice is allowed to breathe freely: you can hear the joy in her doing backing vocals with herself, enjoying getting lost in her own voice. “Getting the personality of your own voice out is important. I’m learning all the time, and it never stops. And to do new songs – it’s like having love affairs. They’re always my favourites because they’re sort of slightly unknown. I love singing the old songs, but I’ve done that. Newness is important to me. Moving on is important to me.”

A prodigious child singer who made her BBC Radio debut in 1942, Petula Clark’s career has been both multi-faceted and truly international in its nature. After scoring her first hit in 1954 with ‘The Little Shoemaker’, a simple show in Paris in 1960 with no grand plans behind it, sparked success in France that paralleled the reception that she had already received back home.

Her best-known flush of flame came with a run of famous Sixties classics and her ability to sing in French, Italian, German and Spanish allowed her music to be discovered across the globe – as a result, Clark has scored a staggering total of 159 Top 40 hits all around the world.

Her long list of collaborators and admirers stretch across both eras and genres – John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, Tom Jones, Dean Martin and Paolo Nutini, to name just a few. She even introduced The Carpenters to A&M Records.

Throughout her journey, Petula Clark has continued to make music on a consistent basis. Her most recent album, 2013’s ‘Lost In You’, emerged to widespread critical acclaim. The Guardian described it as “sleek and surprising” and drew comparisons with Lana Del Rey, while The Telegraph stated: “The really astonishing thing is that it sounds utterly contemporary… it could pass for the debut of some hip young singer-songwriter a quarter her age.”
