Heather Peace has announced that she will release her much
anticipated debut studio album, Fairytales on 21 May via her own
label: Kaleidoscope Records.
The album will follow the release of debut single Better Than You
on 30 April.
Produced by the Oscar nominated Nigel Wright, Fairytales is a
collection of songs that "tell tales of past bad relationships,
sabotaging good ones, friendship and battling demons."
"There are quite a lot of dark songs on the album, I really
spilled my guts out into the lyrics so the title Fairytales might
be misleading," Peace told DIVA.
"But my favourite Fairytales were always the Grimm's Brother
versions anyway, I just think everyone writes better songs when
they're a bit miserable. When you're happy you're with your friends
in the pub aren't you?"
The whole album has been funded in part by Heather's 2011 sell out
UK tour and in part by Pledgemusic.
She met her Pledgemusic target within seven hours of her page
going live, such is the demand from her fans to get their hands on
"Making this album has really been a massive labour of love for
me. I've wanted to do it for a long time but it hasn't felt quite
right until now. To have been able to do this on my own without a
record label is really down to the relationship I've built with my
fans - they have been amazing," she adds.
"They've come to see my gigs over and over, bought merchandise and
pledged their hearts out! Now, I can't wait for them and everyone
else to hear it."
