Are you ready for this and one of our FAV ladies unleashes her solo album and we LOVE HER!!!!
Claire Richards is excited to announce today that she has signed to Sony Music and will release her debut, solo album on 2nd November. The album, My Wildest Dreams, is available to pre-order now from http://smarturl.it/CR_MWD. The first single, On My Own, is out now following the premiere on Radio 2 this morning. Listen to the single here.
My Wildest Dreams is the first time that Claire Richards has branched off alone. As 1/5 of Steps, who stormed the charts last year with their #1 single Scared of the Dark and #2 album Tears On The Dancefloor, Claire has achieved a huge amount of success around the world. While the band take a well-earned break from touring before starting on a new album in 2019, Claire has jumped at the chance to pursue one of her lifelong ambitions and work on an album of her own. Speaking of the record, Claire adds ”This album is literally beyond my wildest dreams – it’s something I've wanted to do since I was very young. I am so proud of this album – it was important to me that every song tells a story and is filled with real emotion and I think we’ve achieved that.
Being in Steps means so much to me, I love every minute, and I am beyond lucky to be a part of Steps and also to be able to do a project of my own.” The first taster of Claire’s new music is the brilliant On My Own, and it beautifully showcases Claire’s phenomenal voice. A very special one to Claire, she comments “On My Own feels very fitting as my first solo single. It’s empowering and really tells the story of the ups and downs I’ve experienced over the years both growing up feeling a bit insecure to the pressures of being in the public eye.” Claire has worked with some of the world’s biggest songwriters and producers on My Wildest Dreams including Diane Warren (Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Cher), Steve Anderson (Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Girls Aloud) and Biff Stannard (U2, Ellie Goulding).
The rest of the year is certain to be a busy but exciting one for Claire. Next week, she announces some intimate UK dates and she already has a slew of promotional appearances lined up. Stay tuned to http://www.clairerichards.co.uk or visit her at the following for further news
