Back in April, Lisa Stansfield released her eighth studio album "Deeper," written by Lisa and long-time songwriting partner Ian Devaney. In addition to singing on and writing the album, Lisa stepped in as executive producer, working alongside Devaney and Mark "Snowboy" Cotgrove.
Bolstered by an electrifying set of remixes from dance music masters, Mike Cruz and Rob Hardt, Lisa's latest single, "Never Ever" was catapulted onto the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart, becoming the#1 most added song during the first week of April, and peaking at No. 6 on the chart-becoming her tenth Top 10 Hit on the U.S. dance charts. Listen HERE.
"Deeper" is out now and available via digital download, CD, Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set and 12" vinyl.
As a pop, R&B and dance music staple in the late '80s and throughout the '90s, Lisa Stansfield's music saw her top the charts on both sides of Atlantic, duets with George Michael and Queen, win multiple Brits and Ivor Novello awards, collect Grammy nominations and feature on "The Bodyguard," the biggest-selling film soundtrack of all time.
Four albums were international hits, selling more than 15 million copies between them and spawning over 20 breakout singles, including international hits such as "All Around The World," "The Real Thing," and "Treat Me Like A Woman." Lisa Stansfield has been a force on the dance floor for decades.
Speaking about the new record, the Grammy nominated, multi-BRIT, Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award winner said "creating this album was a wonderful adventure. I really believe there's a special something in this record. I'm so excited to let it go out into the big wide world with pride."
Following the release of the album teaser track, "Everything" (which recently topped the UK Soul Charts) Lisa unveiled the shimmering music video for "Billionaire," a glittering example of Lisa's songcraft and unique ability to capture a soap opera in a song. According to Lisa, the song is "all about love. It's all about money. The rest is up to you..." In addition to the single version, an 8-track remix EP is also available, featuring mixes by Until Dawn, Rob Hardt and E11even. Listen to "Billionaire" HERE and watch the official video HERE.
Lisa's contribution to British soul is undeniable with a string of hit singles including "All Around The World," "All Woman," "The Real Thing" and many award winning albums. Her unmistakable voice has been a constant presence on the dance floor and airwaves ever since 1989, including seven #1's on the Billboard Dance Charts, and three #1's on Billboard's R&B Songs Chart, with her debut album Affection going platinum and hitting the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Most recently she returned to the Top 20 of the UK album charts with her 7th studio album Seven. A gorgeous and personal collection of her trademark soul, the 2014 record was a reminder of why Lisa has sold nearly 20 million records worldwide and had a string of international top 10 hits.
Lisa Stansfield's upcoming North American tour kicks off October 9th (TICKETS).
