15 Million Records Sold So Far

“This video is sexy, real and empowering for women my age. People were probably expecting something quite different from me, but I didn’t want to be predictable. I want people to say ‘Oh, it’s not what we expected’.”
Louise has announced her first new music in 16 years, a brand new album ‘Heavy Love‘ released via ADA/Warners on 18th October 2019.

‘Stretch‘ is slick slice of mid-paced electric funk pop featuring her unmistakable sweet vocals that make the song instantly ‘Louise‘. The track is sure to excite fans of Louise‘s previous pop smashes, alongside igniting a whole new legion of fans that love pure pop music.
