Eleanor McEvoy to release new album

I’d Rather Go Blonde hits the racks in September.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 21 Jul 2010

Eleanor McEvoy has announced details of her eighth studio album.

Out here on September 17, I’d Rather Go Blonde features nine new McEvoy tunes, a co-write with ex-Beautiful South man Dave Rotheray and a cover of Sam Cooke’s ‘Good Times’.

“I always try to express myself clearly and honestly,” McEvoy says of her inspiration for the record. “I was the odd one, the tubby girl with glasses who had to go to violin lessons after school. The ray of sunlight was the radio with its music. The escape was learning to sing and play instruments and play with others and write and just get out there. Anyway this album is all me, and I am very proud of it.”

The good news for audiophiles – no, it’s not a jailable offence – is that it’ll be available as a 12-track stereo hybrid SACD/CD and on heavy-duty vinyl as well as standard CD.

Expect a full headlining tour in October.
