Good things come to those who wait…. and such is the case with the fourth album from multiplatinum selling singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald. Eleven brand new songs written and recorded in the Summer of 2016 and now set for release on February 17th 2017. Following two sell-out “underplay” shows in London and Glasgow in November 2016, Amy is beyond excited to announce a full UK Tour for 2017 – including her first ever show at the Royal Albert Hall – and of course the release of “Under Stars”. The superb new album is available on CD & vinyl with eleven tracks, plus a Deluxe CD version with eight acoustic tracks, record at RAK Studios in London - one of which is her superb take on the Bruce Springsteen song “I’m On Fire”.

Amy Macdonald is a Scottish singer-songwriter, guitarist, and recording artist. She has sold over 9 million records worldwide. The collection includes 'This Is the Life' & 'A Curious Thing' in a double disc deluxe editions and 3-disc live album ‘Love Love: UK & European Arena Tour LIVE 2010’.
Nearly three years after the release of her highly acclaimed debut album This Is The Life, Amy Macdonald returns with another collection of bittersweet indie pop that oozes innocence and world-weariness in equal measure.The success Macdonald has enjoyed since her debut hasn't dulled her ability to write lyrics that display a maturity way beyond her years, which she marries to a wistfulness the most hardened bluesman would envy. Musically, there hasn't been a huge progression in style, but when there's nothing broke, there's little reason to fix it. Her songwriting (in both style and substance) recalls the early days of Kirsty MacColl, while her deeper vocals have more in common with Alison Moyet. It's a match made in heaven.
The buckle-polishers and skirt-swirlers are back! Presenting 28 rare goodies from Louisiana and South East Texas. The variant of rock’n’roll that emanated from the Gulf Coast of South Louisiana and South East Texas in the 1950s-60s is as evocative of the area as chicken gumbo, crawfish étouffée and red beans and rice. The youthful Cajuns of the period threw themselves into r’n’r like teenagers across the globe, but had additional influences, not just the hillbilly and blues that created rockabilly, but the ethnic music of their parents and, most telling, the R&B sounds carried over the airwaves from New Orleans.
