VV Brown’s 2nd album “Lollipops and Politics” will not be out until February 2012. On November 2, 2011 in New York, VV Brown premiered her new album live for an adoring crowd at Mercury Lounge. As you will see/hear, VV’s favorite song is the ultra sexy “Like Fire.” Get an exclusive sneak preview of the song here.
Do you love it as much as I do? Leave us a comment, loves!
VV Brown is back! If you missed her 2010 debut album “Travelling Like The Light,” I recommend you remedy that right away. The album is a wonderful mixture of soul and rock and VV Brown blends a vintage sound while still being totally fresh. I liked the album so much, in fact, that it made my Top Albums of 2010. I’ve been very excited to hear new music from VV Brown and I got my wish on November 2, 2011 at a sold out show at Manhattan’s Mercury Lounge. The new album will be called “Lollipops and Politics,” and it’s set to be released in February 2012. VV Brown told the crowd that she wanted to do a brief tour to perform the songs live to give her fans a preview of things to come and we got to see the second ever public performance of her new material. I am very happy to say that her new tracks are great and if you loved her debut, you will be very excited. Her new single “Children” is very funky and has a great beat. It’s one of many songs that was written about the sad state of affairs this world is in, but it’s got a positive message. “Tough Like Glue” and “Famous” are upbeat and bouncy and would not be out of place on her debut. Many songs like “Red Balloon” sound like anthems and I know it’s going to be a crowd favorite once the album is released.
VV Brown. Lollipops and Politics - Coming February 2012
The song “Be Yours,” is a slower track (reminiscent of “Back in Time” from her debut) and it was definitely one of my favorite songs of the night. VV talked about recording in her home studio, Have A Cup of Tea Studios, and when she announced the epic love song “Like Fire,” she said it is her favorite new song off the record. It will also be the album’s closer and it’s really beautiful. She talks about an amazing love that feels like fire. The crowd loved every song, but “Like Fire” got a lot of applause at its conclusion. It wasn’t all new songs at Mercury Lounge, however. She also played “Quick Fix” and a new version of “Shark In The Water,” which was slowed down, from “Travelling Like The Light.” The evening closed out with the new songs “10 Feet Tall” and “Children.” I am really looking forward to her new album “Lollipops and Politics,” which is scheduled for release in February 2012. VV Brown chatted with the crowd afterwards and it was great to see the audience personally let her know how much they loved the new material. A video from this show will be coming soon, so watch this space. Welcome back VV!
Happy birthday to British singer VV Brown! Her 2010 debut album “Travelling Like The Light” made my best albums of the year list. She’s got funk, soul, pop and R&B in her music and she’s fantastic live. Why she didn’t strike it big in the USA when non-talented singers like Rihanna rule the charts is beyond say! VV Brown’s 2nd album will be coming out later this year or early 2012 and I am really looking forward to it. Happy birthday VV!
I’m so happy that 2010 was a great year for music! Last year, I struggled to find 10 albums I liked enough and this year, I had to stop myself at my favorite 12. I was fortunate enough to meet 11 out of the 12 artists in 2010 (Arcade Fire being the exception) and I saw 11 out of the 12 albums performed live (with Kele being the exception) and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the artists again for making my ears so happy in 2010. I’ve listened to all of these albums so many times this year and I love them all dearly.
Attention fans of good music! The incredibly talented VV Brown has a new EP that’s out today. “I-Tunes Live From SoHo” features 6 live tracks from her wonderful debut album “Travelling Like the Light.” The track list is:
2. Game Over
4. Back In Time
5. Quick Fix
6. Shark In the Water
If you haven’t heard her music yet, I urge you to do so. She’s got a sexy smooth voice that has elements of Amy Winehouse, but without the drug addiction! I will be horribly disappointed if VV Brown is not a huge star across the world next year at this time.
