Our now infamous Friday night Parade and Street Party returns with another headliner concert featuring Lisa Stansfield in her first-ever Pride concert!
Britain has produced some of the world’s best-loved divas over the past four decades—but few, if any, have been as soulful as Lisa Stansfield. Lisa is not your typical glitzy diva. In fact, the word prima donna doesn’t fit the down-to-earth honesty that characterises the girl from Rochdale, Lancashire, North West England, who has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide.
In 2015, Lisa set about working on her eighth studio album. Bringing in long term friend and faithful band member since 1990 Mark ‘Snowboy’ Cotgrove as the co-producer together with writing and musical partner Ian Devaney. Over two years in the making, Lisa proudly announced in October 2017 that the new album will be called Deeper, released April 2018 accompanied by a worldwide tour.
Speaking about the record, Lisa 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.”
An album teaser track ‘Everything’ was made available in early January 2018 for direct download from pre-ordering the album before it’s release date. With its groove, funk, soul and Lisa’s signature vocals, the song was an exciting taster of what to expect from the new album. After two weeks of radio airplay, ‘Everything’ went straight to Number 1 in the UK Soul Chart, receiving rave reviews from music critics far and wide.
‘Billionaire’ was announced as the first official single release from Deeper. The track is a fine example of Lisa’s songcraft with her ability to capture a soap opera in a song.
