Atlantic Records has announced the US release of Seasons of My Soul, the acclaimed debut album from British singer/songwriter Rumer. The award-winning collection arrives on Jan. 24, 2012. Love the Brit queens: Adele, the late Amy Winehouse, Duffy and now we get Rumer! Love!
Rumer will herald the album's release with a number of eagerly anticipated US live performances. The schedule begins Oct. 23, with stops set for New York, Washington, DC and Philadelphia. Additional North American dates are slated for early 2012 – complete details will be announced shortly.
Fueled by the much-admired hit singles "Slow" and "Aretha," Seasons of My Soul was a platinum certified popular success upon its UK release last year.
About Rumer: Rumer left school at 16 and drifted around England, attending Art College in Devon before joining a fledgling indie band, La Honda. Everything changed when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Rumer dealt with her pain by writing a series of intensely powerful songs, documenting her personal journey through grief. She returned to London upon her mother's death in 2003, performing anywhere and everywhere she could, ultimately catching the attention of producer/composer Steve Brown. Together the two musicians began crafting what would become Seasons of My Soul.
In addition, Rumer also had a fateful encounter with one of her personal heroes, the legendary Burt Bacharach, who flew her to Los Angeles after hearing the album's extraordinary first single, "Slow." Earning the master's approval was just the beginning of what's proven to be a somewhat dizzying ride for Rumer.
