Katie Melua Announces New Album “Album No. 8”, Releases New Song “A Love Like That”
- Georgian-British singer-songwriter Katie Melua announced her eighth studio album “Album No. 8” will be released on October 16, 2020. It is her first LP in four years.
From the album, the leased single “A Love Like That” was released on June 30th, produced by Leo Abrahams.
Katie Melua said of the song, “This song is asking the essential timeless question about mad love, 'How do you make a love like that last?' But before it became about love between a couple, it started its life centred on my relationship with work and the stamina required to keep being an artist in the music industry. It was only after my co-composer Sam Dixon and I wrapped our session, that I retreated to a cottage in the Cotswolds for 3 weeks to wrestle with the song's lyrics. 'A Love Like That' continues a narrative that is across the new album. And in the context of love - it is about having the courage to speak openly and freely.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Charlie Lightening, starring Billy Howle and Katie Melua.
Katie Melua said, “I'm really proud of the video. I loved working with Charlie Lightening, we had lots of talks about how to make it a meaningful work and deal with the new limits on filming. We went with just me and Billy Howle on screen, we tried to show with subtle gestures and nuances the truth of love in its early stages. Hopefully everyone can enjoy watching it.”
