Cynthia Erivo will release her debut album on September 17.
The Grammy and TONY Award-winner and Academy Award nominated star will release 'Ch. 1 Vs. 1' through Verve Records.
Cynthia said: "In storytelling, chapter one and verse one is the way you always begin, and because I believe I'm a storyteller, that's what I wanted to do with my music. That's what this is about, just starting [and revealing] the human parts of me that you don't often get to see.
“It would be a wasted opportunity to not express all that I am. This is probably one of the first times I'll get to just be myself, and be myself fully.”
Cynthia has also just dropped her pop-soul debut single 'The Good', which she co-wrote, and it is accompanied by a music video about Black queer love, intimacy and break-ups.
The video, directed by Mollie Mills, portrays Erivo as a woman remembering the positive memories of her failed relationship and she wanted to capture the subtleties and nuances of love between two Black women with a care and intimacy often absent from such portrayals.
Cynthia explained: "I wanted to normalise seeing Black women in a relationship on screen, because often it's really fetishistic. It was important to have 'something that felt full of heart' and told the story of a relationship that had meaning to the couple but just didn’t work out."
