EMMA BLACKERY has announced a series of HMV signing events around the country to launch her debut album, VILLAINS, out 31st August 2018. Emma will sign copies of the album and meet fans at Nottingham HMV on Sunday 2nd September. 

 

Rising pop star Emma Blackery has released her brand new single ‘Take Me Out’, taken from her forthcoming debut album Villains out August 31st through RWG Records.

‘Take Me Out’ is a huge pop banger stacked with attitude and boasting a massive chorus. Regarding the single Emma says, “I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. It’s a song I really connect with and one of my favourites from Villains. The song deals with feelings of paranoia when you are feeling exposed and isolated by your friends.”

Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) has produced ‘Take Me Out’, and was also behind Emma’s recent singles ‘Icarus’, ‘Agenda’ and ‘Dirt’, which are all taken from her forthcoming album Villains.

Villains is a record inspired by a period of reflection and one that invites listeners on Emma’s journey from, as she explains, “feeling so paranoid that I risked becoming a person I didn’t like, to letting go of all of that hurt”.

The atmospheric album opener ‘Villains Pt. 1’ sees her declare, “I am a nightmare… designed to destroy” over a beat that drips with menace. Elsewhere, ‘Petty’ (“You used to call me pretty, then you took out the “r””) flirts with tropical house, and her restrained vocal on ballad ‘What I Felt With You’ simmers with longing. By the album’s explosive closer, ‘Villains Pt. 2’, Emma is forced to consider her own part in her downfall, asking, “Am I kidding myself, blaming somebody else, I’m my own biggest villain.” On creating the album Emma says, “Writing the album was so cathartic. Music is my therapy.”

In support of the album’s release the Essex-born singer has announced an HMV in-store tour where she will be signing copies of Villains and performing songs from the album live. HMV will be stocking exclusive yellow edition colour vinyl of the new album and the tour will call at seven stores across the country.

Following this Emma will be head out on an extensive headline tour across the UK and Europe, which will finish with a headline show at London’s KOKO on October 25th. Full Emma Blackery tour dates can be found below:
