Susan Boyle to Have "Hope" This Fall, Embarking on First U.S. Tour
Tue, 16 Sep 2014 12:00:45
Singing sensation Susan Boyle catapulted to international stardom in 2009, smashed music records around the world, sold over 22 million albums and now she returns with an incredible album of inspiration songs and her sixth studio album in five years.
Hope will be released via SYCO/Columbia Records on Tuesday, October 21.
Hope heralds a new era of music for Britain's Got Talent discoveree Susan Boyle, where ballads marry with uptempo songs.
Su Bo is planning to tour the U.S. for the first time in October 2014.
She is coming to America, finally, so can we get a "Yay!?"
Talking about her sixth album, Su Bo said, "I have really enjoyed making this album. I had a huge input in music suggestions and finally have been able to record one of my all time favorites, 'Angel,' originally by Sarah McLachlan. I also am pleased to be able to sing some uptempo songs that show variation in my repertoire. There are also iconic songs, which were a risk to take on but I hope I've done them justice in my own way. John Lennon's 'Imagine' was one of the hardest to record, not because of the music or the vocals but because I wanted to do his song justice. Of course the die -hard Lennon fans will probably criticize but I hope that people like my personal take on the song. I themed this album around inspiration and hope because those are two elements we all need in our life to drive us forward and inspire us to go out and capture our dreams- they worked for me after all."
