Having just returned from an incredible weekend at Glastonbury which saw her perform to packed out crowds on both the Pyramid and Park stages, Laura Mvula announces the release of new single 'She', out 18th August through RCA Victor (Sony).
Taken from Laura's debut album, 'Sing to the Moon' which debuted in the top 10 official UK album chart when released in March, 'She' is the track that started it all. So lyrically poetic and stirring that it simply speaks for itself. The Sunday Times Culture said, "Laura Mvula is so far ahead of any other most-likely-to British Newcomer for 2013, it's scary. Listening to songs such as She is like an awakening".
The single will be released as a remix bundle and contains remixes of 'She' by MJ Cole, Jakwob, Linslee, Eagle For Hands and Robin Hannibal.
Laura has had an incredible year - selling out her own regional tour and touring with Jessie Ware and Paloma Faith, Laura has been wowing crowds around the world. As well as playing the main stage at The Isle of Wight Festival and most recently, the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, she's also performing at T in the Park, Latitude, The Urban Proms and numerous festivals across Europe this summer.
Since announcing the release of her debut EP back in November 2012, Laura has been picking up critical acclaim and support from some of the biggest tastemakers out there. Laura's unique sound has entranced critics, helping to make her one of the names on everyone's lips in 2013 and has led to her being described as "The voice of 2013" by The Evening Standard and her album hailed as "One of the most striking and original debuts from any British artist in many a year." by the Telegraph.
Her voice, layered and sensuous, is a one-woman symphony, it's easy to see why she is being hailed as the face to watch. A graduate from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition, the 27-year-old was nominated for the 2013 BRITs Critics' Choice Award and ranked highly in the BBC Sound of 2013.
As one of the most exciting new musical talents to come out of the UK, this young lady deserves every bit of attention that she gets.
