Former Everything But The Girl star Tracey Thorn has teased her new album Record with a single "Queen" - her first new solo release since 2010's Love and Its Opposite - and promises an album in part about freedom and disenthrallment.
Taken from the album Record - due for a 2 March release - "Queen" features drums and bass from Warpaint’s Stella and Jenny.
”I think I’ve always written songs which chronicle the milestones of a woman’s life,” Thorn says. “Different ages and stages, different realities, not often discussed in pop lyrics. If 2010’s Love and Its Opposite was my mid-life album - full of divorce and hormones - then Record represents that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new 'no fucks given' phase of life."
“I wanted it to be a record you’d listen to in the daytime,” Thorn adds. “On your headphones or on the move. Not necessarily in the evening, or in your bedroom.”
