In what is surely a marriage made in musical heaven, the inimitable Lisa Stansfield returns with her sixth and most accomplished studio album to date, ‘The Moment’, produced by the innovative and hugely influential Trevor Horn.
‘The Moment’ is released September 27th on ZTT Records and follows last year’s platinum greatest hits collection, ‘Biography’.
Lisa has sold nearly twenty million records worldwide, confirming her position as one of Britain’s most popular and gifted female vocalists.
The first single to be taken from the album is to be a Double A-Side featuring the beautiful ballad ‘Easier’ and the bold, brassy and utterly infectious, ‘Treat Me Like A Woman’ and is released September 27th.
The single effortlessly marries the best of old and new Lisa Stansfield and perfectly showcases the sheer power and finesse of Lisa’s unmistakable voice.
‘The Moment’ is classic Lisa Stansfield with a twist. Her totally distinctive, effortlessly powerful voice is better than ever and the album is a testament to her ability to continually evolve and experiment as both a vocalist and an artist.
One of the album’s many highlights is Lisa’s cover of Prefab Sprout’s ‘When Love Breaks Down’ for which Paddy McAloon wrote an extra verse just for Lisa.
Other stand out tracks range from the title track, ‘The Moment’, which features a 40-piece orchestra to the soulful, ‘If I Hadn’t Got You’, written by Chris Difford and Chris Braide.
‘If I Hadn’t Got You’ is quintessential Lisa Stansfield; honest, classy and sensitive. Lisa co-writes a number of tracks on the album including the sublime title track, ‘The Moment’.
According to Lisa, “Recording the album was just really refreshing.
We would write very quickly and just go in and see what worked. Initially we played with a full band and then Trevor would add and take things away.
But there is a live, relaxed feel to some of the vocals, which came from those early sessions. I am a real perfectionist and it was just really exciting to let go.”
