The record follows the singer’s last studio album, ‘Girl Who Got Away’, which was released in 2013, was released in 2013 to critical acclaim, reaching number five in the charts. The album’s lead single, ‘Hurricanes’, which was released on Spotify at the end of last year, has garnered nearly two million streams on the platform to-date.
