Lemar to release new album ‘Page in My Heart’ in March

Lemar is back with new music, his first new material in eleven years, as he announces the release of new album ‘Page in My Heart’.

Released via AMP on 24th March 2023, the album features the lead single ‘Future Love’, which is available now. Watch the lyric video below:

Lemar says, “With this new album, I wanted to make something for anyone who ever bought ‘Dedicated’, as this year is 20 years since its release. I thought I’d like to make something for the people who got behind that album, something that they would appreciate and like. That’s really reflected in the first single ‘Future Love’. It’s more uptempo, it’s got that soulful feel, it’s a bit looser, a bit Chaka Khan. A bit ‘Dance (With U)’… it’s got that kind of energy to it.”

For the record Lemar has worked with longtime writing partners Craig Hardy and Mathias Andermo. ‘Page in My Heart’ is being released on Lemar’s own label, which gives him full creative control.

While taking a break from the spotlight, Lemar has been producing for other artists, gaining credibility as an actor, making a string of TV appearances including ‘Little Darlings’ which aired on Sky Cinema in 2022, and hosting his own podcast, ‘The Lemar Show’.

‘My fans have been really, really patient,’ he says. ‘I always say soon, soon, soon, soon. And they’re like, well, when’s that? I’ve been doing some acting, I’ve done other TV bits which they have supported, but I didn’t want to announce a show celebrating the first album without giving them something new. I’m always writing songs, but I’ve been writing songs for other things over the years. So I thought, let me make sure that I get a new offering on the table.’

Lemar will celebrate two decades of music and the 20th anniversary of ‘Dedicated’ live with two special nights in Manchester and London on the 27th and 28th of April. Tickets go on sale on 10th February at 10am.

Tickets will be available here and at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
