Soul superstar, MARY J BLIGE, has announced the release of a brand new album… ‘The London Sessions’ which will be released on November 24th. Written and recorded in the capital, Mary calls the album, “the most innovative album of my 22 year career”.

The long player features collaborations with the cream of the contemporary UK music scene – people like Sam Smith, Disclosure, Emeli Sande and Jimmy Napes. The album’s lead single will be ‘Right Now’. Produced by Disclosure, it will be available from October 27th while a month earlier Ms Blige will be debuting a selection of the songs at the I Tunes Festival at London’s Roundhouse.

Mary says, “It (the album) is all about the London Music scene and I’m so excited to have been part of it, to record my album. The songs are fun, therapeutic and soulful. This is a beautiful change for me and I’m proud of what we have done here.”

A trailer containing a glimpse into the making of this album has just been launched on Pitchfork and the footage follows Blige on her musical journey in London.
