DescriptionAmerica’s hottest new singer songwriter, Christina Perri has announced the UK release of her debut album ‘Lovestrong’ on 19 September.
Her debut single ‘Jar Of Hearts’, which was released in May - and featured on the hit TV show Glee on the day of release - has become an overnight sensation both Stateside and here - selling over 130k in the UK alone and peaking at No. 4 in the UK charts. The official video for the single has now accumulated over 30 million views on her YouTube channel and has sat on the A list at Radio 1, Radio 2 and Heart for several weeks now.
Produced by Joe Chiccareli (White Stripes, Tori Amos) and mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Regina Spektor), ‘Lovestrong’ boasts a bold creative vision that is very much in keeping with Perri’s spirited personality. A petite, tattooed ball of energy with an engaging smile, she has always embraced life to the fullest. Her adventures have included touring the world as an assistant to a rock band, spending a year at a prestigious university, producing popular music videos and even making olive oil in Italy.
The 24-year-old Philadelphia native was a struggling singer-songwriter and musician last June, when she was supporting herself as a café manager in Beverly Hills. Her life changed dramatically when she was asked to perform her self penned song, a defiant break-up anthem on the Fox show So You Think You Can Dance. The raw, emotional quality of her performance connected with viewers and catapulted her into the public eye and ‘Jar of Hearts’ went on to sell a million downloads and led to Perri’s deal with Atlantic Records. Her debut lovestrong was released in the US in May and went straight to No. 4 in the Billboard 200, proving exactly what everyone now knows – this girl is a born star.
