TUNE Lulu James - Closer
‘Closer’ is Lulu’s first single release on RCA, out on 8th April 2013. A standout track sprung from her writing and recording sessions with The Invisible’s Dave Okumu. His ability to bring the best out of her lyricism and vocal talents is beautifully displayed in this 21st Century soul single.
Lulu James first entered our consciousness with her self-released debut EP ‘Rope Mirage’ in 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 Black Butter in November. 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 will be playing live, supporting Jessie Ware & Laura Mvula on Wed 13th March at Shepherds Bush Empire. As well as performances at Liverpool Sound City, Live At Leeds, YO1, Bestival,
Evolution Festival, with more shows TBA.
