Lulu James Announces New Single 'Closer' Released April 7th 2013

Lulu James first entered our musical consciousness with her self-released debut EP 'Rope Mirage' in late spring 2012. After a busy summer of live shows and writing sessions the young lass from Tyneside signed to RCA before releasing her second, independent single 'Be Safe' on influential new label Black Butter in November.

'Closer' is the first release proper on RCA - a standout track sprung from her writing and recording sessions with The Invisible's Dave Okumu - a musician and producer Lulu instantly hit it off with in the studio. His ability to bring the best out of her lyricism and vocal talents is beautifully displayed in this 21st Century soul single. Remixes will come from Kidnap Kid, Brolin and Domzilla.

In shaping her sound Lulu cites influences as varied as Whitney, India Irie, and Aretha to Fly Lo, Mount Kimbie and Jamie XX. For her debut album she's working with her long-standing collaborator Domzilla, as well as Dave Okumu and Two Inch Punch. Her debut album will be released in the summer.

Lulu James will be playing live over the coming weeks including a support slot with Jessie Ware at Shepherds Bush Empire on March 13.

Upcoming shows:
08/03 - The Other Rooms - Newcastle
13/03 - Shepherds Bush Empire - London (w/ Jessie Ware and Laura Mvula)
25/04 - Rescue Rooms, Nottingham W/ Rudimental
+ shows confirmed at Liverpool Sound City, Live At Leeds, YO1,
Evolution Festival and Bestival so far.
