Joan Armatrading's New Album 'Starlight' Set for 2/26 Release

429 Records is set to release "STARLIGHT," an all new collection of compositions by celebrated songstress Joan Armatrading. "STARLIGHT" is a collection of 10 songs which emphasize her unequaled prowess as a singer and arranger. Always the consummate songwriter, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Armatrading explores new vocal phrasing technique with "STARLIGHT" which add new emotional dimension and depth to her always incisive explorations of love and the human condition. The lively jazz-inflected musical arrangements serve to buoy the constantly shifting lyrical moods. As on her last 429 Records studio albums "Into the Blues" and "This Charming Life," Armatrading produced the album and plays every instrument to spectacular effect. "STARLIGHT" will be released on 429 Records February 26th.

Long recognized as a pioneering force with a career spanning three decades, the Saint Kitts born Joan Armatrading has maintained an acclaimed and storied career. The three times Grammy nominated British artist has garnered countless accolades which include Top 10 albums and singles ("Love and Affection," "Willow," "Drop The Pilot," are but a few), not to mention a #1 debut atop the Billboard Blues chart in 2007 (a first for a female artist from the UK). She has made VH1's list of the 100 Most Influential Women in Rock, has been nominated for a Brit Award, gave a command performance for Nelson Mandela on his 70th birthday at Wembley Stadium, received an Honorary Degree from Birmingham University.
