Details

If you don't know Imelda May, prepare to be blown away. If you are already a fan, get ready to hear her as you never have before. She has found a new groove, exploring blues, soul, gospel, folk, rock, sensitive acoustica, cinematic drama and explosive balladry on a set of the boldest, most personal and intimately autobiographical songs she has ever written.

Long celebrated by peers as one of the most sensational singers of contemporary music, Imelda has made the album of her life. ‘I’ve called it Life Love Flesh Blood because that encompasses everything,’ she says. ‘It’s all in there: birth, sex, love, divorce and death. It’s the story of my life.’

Her musical range is breathtaking, from the classic fifties rock and soul melodrama of bitter ballad Black Tears to the slinky, sensuous How Bad Can A Good Girl Be? Imelda doesn’t just sound different. She actually looks different: darker, stronger, more sensuously feminine and adult.

So meet the new Imelda May and prepare to be amazed.
