Louise Returns With First New Music In 16 Years!

Louise returns with first new music in 16 years! The singer who has sold 15 million records sold so far, will premiere her new song, ‘Stretch’ tomorrow, Tuesday 26 March. It comes ahead of her new album, ‘Heavy Love’, set for release on 18 October via ADA/Warner.

Recorded in Sweden, London and LA, ‘Heavy Love’ is Louise’s first album in 18 years. She has worked on the album with a sensational collection of music luminaries including Clean Bandit, RAYE, Eg White, Sinead Harnett and Karen Poole.

The first song from the album to be premiered, ‘Stretch’, will released tomorrow Tuesday March 26th.

‘Stretch’ is a 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, while igniting a whole new legion of fans that love pure pop music.

The incredible video for ‘Stretch’ will premiere this Friday.

Louise says:

“Making this album has been a real emotional and honest process for me. It’s been 18 years since I went into a recording studio, and with no expectations I’ve come out with a body of work which I am so proud of. I can’t wait for you all to hear it!”

Louise rose to fame as one quarter of pop supergroup Eternal, the first girl band ever to sell over 1 million copies of an album, with their 1993 debut ‘Always & Forever’.

As a solo artist, Louise has had 18 consecutive top solo 20 singles, 6 with Eternal and 12 by herself. Her debut solo album, ‘Naked’ sold over 1 million copies, and overall she has sold over 15 million records worldwide with 5 million of those in the UK. Her previous single, ‘Pandora’s Kiss’ was a Top 5 hit in 2003.

Louise has released three studio albums to date, including the Platinum selling ‘Naked’ (1996), ‘Woman In Me’ (1997), and ‘Elbow Beach’ (2000). She released a greatest hits collection, ‘Changing Faces – The Best Of Louise’, in 2001.

Louise returned to music in 2018 with her ‘Intimate and Live’ comeback tour, seeing the entire run of dates selling out in 3 minutes! Last summer Louise played some of the biggest summer shows in the UK, including the legendary Isle of Wight Festival, The Mighty Hoopla, as well as supporting Britney Spears at the iconic Brighton Pride.
