FOXES ALBUM ALL I NEED AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE TODAY 2/5
WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING ABOUT ALL I NEED:
” The U.K. singer’s second album is full of unabashedly hungry and hurt songs designed for the dancefloor and radio. Her music is both familiar and twisty, blowing up live drums into huge beats, telescoping her throaty voice into massive choruses, and diving into the trashy transcendence of Eurodisco power ballads..a gospel choir lifts up the chorus of “Better Love,” [and] “Wicked Love” explodes into Kate Bush vocal arpeggios — it’s a reminder of how just much fun the communal part of pop can be.” – Rolling Stone
“Body Talk,” the debut single from her second album [is a] girly 80s synthpop via driving, handclapping French house, it was one of the best songs of the year. Just as impressive were its lyrics, which saw Allen in the aftermath of a relationship, oscillating between the pull of a lingering, debilitating bond and feelings of euphoric release.” – The Guardian
” ‘Body Talk’ remains the standout, but every track here could work as a single, from the modern Soca of ‘Cruel’ to ‘Wicked Love’ and its light indie-pop stylings. ‘Better Love’, written with Bastille’s Dan Smith, is a homegrown anthem, while ‘If You Leave Me Now’ is hugely commendable for doing 80s pop melodrama without, for once, resorting to pastiche. A singer-songwriter’s pop album through and through, strong melodies and fluid songwriting take precedence over the usual disjointed melee of devices and decontextualised hooks that come about when producers write albums.” -NME
[New York- February 5, 2016] Grammy Award-winning recording artist Foxes releases today her sophomore album All I Need on Big Picnic/RCA Records.
The album, All I Need was recorded over the course of a year in London, Hay-On-Wye and Los Angeles and notable collaborators include Mark Ralph (Years & Years), MyRiot (London Grammar), Dan Wilson (Adele) and Jesse Shatkin (Sia). The songs on the album include themes such as moving on from past relationships and gaining new confidence as a person and an artist. The disco-tinged strut of “Body Talk,” the first single from the album which was featured in a worldwide H&M campaign, the emotional appeal of “If You Leave Me Now” and stunning heart-felt belter “Better Love’” have all given fans a taste of what’s to come.
NME calls Foxes second album, “… the pop belter Britain needs…This is pop music straight from the British grassroots – personal and organic, fresh and contemporary without [the] patchwork of underground hipster touchstones – but ‘All I Need’ is also just as universal, satisfyingly expensive-sounding and lustrous as any soulless blockbuster cast from the musical establishment…‘All I Need’ is Britain’s pop industry going head-to-head with America’s heaviest hitters, and triumphing.”
Foxes also received critical acclaim for her debut album Glorious with Daily Mail calling her “A soulful singer and confident songwriter…this beautifully crafted debut takes listeners on an ethereal pop tour,” while The Financial Times describes the record as filled with “Hammering tribal drums, dramatic orchestrations, powerful singing,” and USA Today proclaims Foxes as “a vocalist you remember and want to hear more from.”
In 2014, London’s own Louisa Rose Allen, better known as Foxes won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording for “Clarity” with Zedd which they performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! and Late Show with David Letterman. She also made her solo TV debut on UK’s Alan Carr Chatty Man.
The stunning Foxes has graced the cover of UK’s Fabulous and The New Review as well as gorgeous features in UK’s InStyle and stateside in the likes of Flaunt, Elle, Marie Claire and NYLON.
In 2015, Foxes sold out two UK tours, starred in an international H&M campaign, performed with a 48 piece orchestra at London Jazz Festival, won a Guinness World Record for “most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities” from debuting her track “Body Talk” live in 7 cities across the UK, and fronted a campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
While readying her sophomore effort, she is also gearing up for her biggest UK tour to date beginning this February, which includes a stop at the iconic Roundhouse in London.
