UK artist Lucy Rose is premiering the video for her single “All That Fear” via Billboard; read HERE. Lucy’s highly anticipated North American begins March 6 atThe Troubadour in Los Angeles. She tours in support of her third studio albumSomething’s Changing (out now on Arts & Crafts) See below for a complete list of North American dates.
Following the tour for her second album Work It Out, Lucy noticed a steady stream of tweets from Latin America, and the unlikely statistic that geographically her music was most popular on Spotify in Mexico City. Inspired by this news, Lucy offered her fans in Latin America a deal: “If you book me a gig, I’ll come and stay.”
For two months Lucy toured Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico, playing free shows, staying with fans and “falling back in love with making music.” Rose’s husband also filmed the experience along the way and produced a documentary of the trip. The documentary was inspired by “the kindness and faith in music of those she met including fans blocking the street outside a gig above a launderette, trying to sleep on endless inter-city bus rides and living with families in out-of-the-way towns.”
With the insight gained during her travels, Lucy set out to make the third album on her own. She began to collaborate with Brighton producer Tim Bidwell, and in the comfort of his home studio, created the new album in a mere 17 days.
The record also contains contributions from Bidwell, in-house bassist Ben Daniels and drummer Chris Boot as well as guest appearances by Daughters’ Elena Tonra, Marcus Hamblett and Matthew and The Atlas’ Emma Gatrill. On two tracks vocal harmonies are provided by The Staves (“Floral Dresses” and “Is This Called Home”).
“The songs just came more naturally after that trip, from feeling good and from learning so much about myself,” explains Lucy. “I feel more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever felt in my life. So there is a lot of searching as well as a lot of discovery on this record.”
