Sara Bareilles - The Blessed Unrest (Preview)
US singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles is set to release her single Chasing The Sun through Epic/Sony Music in the UK on June 16.
The track is taken from her current album The Blessed Unrest, which is being released in the UK on May 26. She makes her UK live debut at Islington Assembly Hall on June 2, 2014.
Following Sara’s performance with Carole King at the Grammys, her two Grammy nominations, including album of the year for The Blessed Unrest and best pop solo performance for previous single Brave, and her huge US sales success (1.75 million albums, 4 million singles to date), Epic UK are set to release the US album The Blessed Unrest this spring.
Sara Bareilles has sold over 86,000 albums in the UK to date, and her previous hit single Love Song, which charted at Number 4 in the UK in 2008, has sold over 200,000 copies.
This is what Sara has to say about the album: “The Blessed Unrest is my third full-length release, recorded over the last 6 months and mostly written within the past year of my life. Last year was a transformative year for me personally, and I’m currently reeling from and revelling in the new. Among many life changes, I am a brand new resident of New York City.
“Most of this record was written and recorded here, which I believe has informed its sound in a most profound way. With the help of my producing partners, John O’Mahony (Metric, Coldplay), and Kurt Uenala (Depeche Mode), I co-produced more than half of this record and I’m very proud of that.
“In addition to the production here in New York, I was able to work with Mark Endert (Maroon 5, Fiona Apple) and Eric Rosse (Tori Amos, Sara Bareilles…that’s me) to complete the record.”
