Story by Jack Foley
PETULA Clark has announced her first full UK tour in five years this October (2013) in support of her new album, Lost In You.
The lead track from her new album, Cut Copy Me, is a contemporary surprise, while the title track reverberates around a simple, yet beautiful piano refrain.
The album as a whole features a mix of new songs and covers with her own unique slant.
