Rebecca Ferguson has announced that her long-awaited second album Freedom will be released on 2nd December.
The album is the follow-up to 2011 debut Heaven which sold over 600,000 copies in the Uk and peaked at number 23 in the US. Rebecca has co-written all of Freedom working with collaborators including Jarrad Rogers, Mr Hudson and Toby Gad.
Talking about the album Rebecca said, ‘Since the release of Heaven, so much has changed in my life. I feel like I’ve learned more in the past two years than in the rest of my life put together and this is reflected in the music on this record. Ive put my heart and soul into it. If its passionate, vulnerable, soulful and raw thats because everything I’ve gone through when making the record has driven the music and lyrics. I’m not someone who can just go into a studio at any time and just create I need drama and passion. If the first album was a collection of great songs, this new album is more of a coherent statement. I’m excited again!’
The tracklisting and first single is expected to be announced soon.
