Katie Melua preps album number six
Katie Melua releases Ketevan, her sixth studio album, on 16th September.
Melua says of the new album, "I hope people enjoy the songs, the variety of ideas on this record, with romance, melancholia, with rootsy blues and then a few retro inspired jazz songs. We probably don't listen to albums in the same way we used to but I hope the full spectrum of this album gets appreciated."
The record sees Melua return to songwriting and working with Mike Batt and two new collaborators, Mike's son Luke (who has co-produced the album) and Toby Jepson. "It is great to be back in the studio with Mike, one of the greatest songwriters alive, who has penned some timeless new songs, and to be back writing myself. Luke and Toby brought a new dynamic to the studio....I love the creative spark that happens when the right group of people come together."
Katie will be performing a special 10th anniversary concert at The Roundhouse in London on October 2nd.
