GLOBAL ALBUM LIVESTREAM EVENT ON 7 AUGUST
Following a string of teases across her social platforms this week, Anne-Marie has revealed the full tracklisting of her highly anticipated and soon-to-be-released new album, Therapy, out 23 July through Asylum/Major Toms. To join with the announcement, the UK star has confirmed that her upcoming single, ‘Kiss My (Uh Oh)’ with Little Mix, will be released on the same date.
A long-awaited collaboration that’s generated huge excitement amongst both Anne-Marie and Little Mix fanbases, ‘Kiss My (Uh Oh)’ has all the ingredients to become the break-up anthem of summer ’21. Sampling Lumidee’s early 00’s R&B classic ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oh)’, the slick production and all-out, empowering track documents the liberating feeling that comes with walking away from a toxic relationship – a narrative that has seen protagonist, Anne-Marie, earn huge success following the releases of ‘Ciao Adios’, ‘FRIENDS’ and ‘Alarm’. Anne-Marie co-wrote the track with Kamille (Little Mix, Headie One) and production comes from Lewis Thompson (David Guetta, Joel Corry) alongside Mojam (Summer Walker, Aitch).
Anne-Marie is currently riding high in the UK charts with her Niall Horan collaboration, ‘Our Song’, which peaked in the UK Top 15 (OCC) last week and is enjoying huge rotation on Radio 1 (A List), Capital (A List), Radio 2 (B List) and Bauer. Tomorrow night, Anne-Marie will be joined by her close friend Ed Sheeran for Celebrity Gogglebox at 9pm BST on Channel 4.
On August 7th, Anne-Marie will be performing the new album in its entirety for the first time, that’ll take shape as a global livestream event hosted on streaming platform, ON AIR.
Announced in May, Anne-Marie’s second studio album, Therapy, is the official follow-up to her multi-platinum and four million-selling 2018 debut, Speak Your Mind [the UK’s biggest-selling debut release of that year]. An artist whose everywoman candour and knock-you-down vocal range has reverberated across the globe, Therapy is a collection of songs that embody A-M’s characterful artistry, self-effacing attitude and beautiful honesty; attributes that have not only catapulted Essex-born Anne-Marie to platinum status in the UK to the USA and everywhere in-between, but ones that have seen her reign supreme as a fearless Gen Z role model.
An album of candour and vivacity in equal measure, Anne-Marie wrote Therapy with Max Martin (Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift), Kamille, MNEK, Raye, TMS, Blake Slatkin (The Kid Laroi, 24kGoldn), Ed Sheeran, Nathan Dawe and Plested (Lewis Capaldi) – production comes from Mojam (Aitch, Fredo), Fred Ball (Rihanna), TMS and Blake Slatkin.
Speaking about the forthcoming LP upon its official announcement, Anne-Marie said:
“Ugh, it feels SO GOOD to announce my new album, Therapy.
Music is a source of healing for everyone and music is therapy itself, right?! I hadn’t realised until we were hit by the pandemic just how much I NEEDED music. I need to perform. I need to write. My lyrics are my open diary to you all and writing this album has helped me focus and understand my feelings. I needed this album.
As well as seeking therapy from writing and music in general, I’ve also been on a journey of seeing a psychiatrist this past year and it has changed my life. I’ve always tried to be as open as I can with my fans about my own journey and through seeing a professional, I’ve been able to start combatting and understand the anxieties my brain has dealt me over the years. I am learning, and I am progressing.
This album helped me get to that place too and it encapsulates lots of feelings and emotions, whether it’s tracks that focus on my own ride, or the ones that I have just loved making, and I hope you can lose yourself in it.
I made this for you and me.”
