Jools Holland will return with an all-star female cast including Kylie Minogue and Amy Winehouse for his new album ‘Sirens of Soul’.
Following the hugely successful release of Golden Age Of Song in 2011, which sold close to 200k copies in the UK alone, Jools Holland is back with a brand new album and an elite gathering of world-class female artists.
Sirens Of Song highlights Jools’ talent for amazing collaborations and features duets between the music maestro himself and some of the most iconic female voices in contemporary and classic music: Kylie, Emeli Sande, Joss Stone, Laura Mvula, Imelda May and Rumer to name just a few.
Sirens Of Song will be released on Monday, November 24 by East West.
Jools Holland said: “It’s a privilege and honour to celebrate and bring together, for the first time ever, some of the greatest female vocalists and writers of our time on this new record.”
“I’m so grateful to have had the support of these incredibly gifted women in music who bring that magical female perspective to every track. Collaborating and working with this diverse and dazzling array of talent, who hail from all sorts of genres spanning from today and back to the jazz age, has been an inspiration and something rather special. Enjoy”.
Sirens Of Song is a true showcase in musicianship and combines an array of wonderful performers with Jools’ outstanding talent, with big band support from his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. The 14 track album features a selection of originals and reworked classics.
