Following the launch of her mammoth new single “FRIENDS” alongside Marshmello, Anne-Marie is delighted to announce details of her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Speak Your Mind’, set for release on MAY 4, 2018.
‘Speak Your Mind’ is the rich fruit of the past two years’ work and a hyper-confident artistic statement. On her debut offering Anne-Marie’s playfully infectious pop spirit entwines with her celebrated humour, charisma and idiosyncratic storytelling – attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the UK’s most-loved female breakthrough stars of recent years. A sonic masterclass, ‘Speak Your Mind’ spans a number of personal yet relatable topics that only Anne-Marie could unite so compellingly: album opener “Cry” is a message to the ex-boyfriend who wants you back after ditching you for someone else; the empowering “Perfect” is an ode to self-love and appreciation; the vulnerable “Machine” imagines a world free of the negativity and worry that life throws at you; while “2002” – a track Anne-Marie co-wrote with long-time friend and champion Ed Sheeran – recalls memories of a childhood sweetheart. Including her hit singles “Alarm” [2016’s biggest-selling UK debut single], the UK Top 10 “Ciao Adios” and recent smash “FRIENDS” alongside Marshmello, the Essex-born star commands an all-star cast of producers on her debut LP including Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran), Nana Rogues (Drake), TMS (Emelie Sande), Tom Meredith (One Direction) and of course Marshmello. Co-writes come from Emily Warren (Chainsmokers, Shawn Mendes), Ina Wroldsen (Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne), Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day) and the aforementioned Ed Sheeran.
