Grammy-award winning artist Estelle has unveiled her new album, Lovers Rock, on NPR‘s First Listen, where she also did an interview which you can listen and read on The NPR website. The full-length record will be available everywhere on September 7 via the artist’s own label, Established 1980 Inc and VP Records.
Lovers Rock traces back to the artist’s West Indian roots and tells her parent’s love story. Estelle has collaborated with a number of celebrated producers including Reefa (Lil Wayne), Jerry Wonda (Wyclef Jean), and Harmony Samuels (Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande). The album also features HoodCelebrityy, Chronixx, Kranium, Luke James, and Nick & Navi, who are also signed to the label.
NPR has described the album as, “The way this album talks about love is deceptively powerful. It seats devotion and self-love comfortably side-by-side. It documents the noble process of fighting for how we wish to be treated in our personal relationships and, by extension, in society.”
