Laura Mvula Announces The Release Of New Single 'That's Alright' On 5th May 2013

Nominee for the 2013 BRITs Critics' Choice Award and ranked highly in fourth place for the BBC Sound of 2013, Laura Mvula announces the release of new single, 'That's Alright' on 5th May 2013 through RCA Victor (Sony). 

'That's Alright', is a sassy stomping hymn to empowerment, infused with big crescendos of brass which The Guardian proclaim, "could well become a summer anthem". 

The new single is taken from Laura's debut album, 'Sing to the Moon' which debuted in the top 10 official UK album chart when released in March. Laura has had an incredible year - having just finished touring with Jessie Ware and making her mark at SXSW, she's due to start her own sold-out regional tour in April and support Paloma Faith in June.  Not bad for a former supply teacher from Birmingham. 

Since announcing the release of her debut EP 'She' back in November last year, Laura has been picking up critical acclaim and support from some of the biggest tastemakers out there. Laura's unique sound has wowed critics, helping to make her one of the names on everyone's lips in 2013 and has led to her being described as "The voice of 2013" by The Evening Standard and her album hailed as "a masterpiece" by The Sunday Times Culture. 

The classically trained, singer-songwriter's music fuses orchestral soul with velvety harmonies and emotional vocals giving nods to Nina Simone, George Gershwin and Björk amongst others. A graduate from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition, the 26-year-old is a unique collision of her Caribbean background and classical music. 

As one of the most exciting new musical talents to come out of the UK, this young lady deserves every bit of attention that she gets. As Clash magazine say, "Beautiful in voice and soul, lift your eyes skyward and watch this girl soar". 

Live dates: 

Tuesday 30th April - Brighton, Komedia 
Wednesday 1st May - London, Islington Assembly Hall 
Saturday 4th May - Leeds, Live at Leeds 2013 (Met Uni) 
Sunday 5th May - Glasgow, Oran Mor 
Tuesday 7th May - Manchester, Deaf Institute 
Wednesday 8th May - Birmingham, Glee Club
