British soul singer and West End star Beverley Knight will release her 8th studio album, Soulsville, on June 10th 2016.
Soulsville was recorded in a week long session at Royal Studios in Memphis and features a collection of original songs plus a handful of Memphis classics.
The album celebrates the music, sounds and legacy of the city she fell in love with while preparing for her Oliver Award-nominated role Memphis the Musical, and is named after the Memphis neighbourhood that was home to Stax Records and where Royal Studios still is.
To coincide with the release, Knight heads out on a tour of the UK on May 21st, before returning to star in the theatre production of The Bodyguard the Musical.
Watch Knight perform album track ‘Hound Dog’ live on BBC Two’s Later With Jools.
