It has taken five long years but Beverley Knight has returned to her first love of music with a new album titled Soulsville.
After spending the last few years conquering the West End with critically-acclaimed performances in The Bodyguard and Cats, Knight has crafted an album which she says embodies her own sound without conforming to the trends currently dominating the charts.

Knight, 43, rose to prominence more than 20 years ago with hit singles including Greatest Day, Shoulda Woulda Coulda and Come As You Are. Even after all this time in the industry and a five-year hiatus, Knight is still able to find inspiration and create music which evolves with each album.

Addressing her lengthy spell away from music, Knight told IBTimes UK: “I couldn’t write an album while I was in the thick of West End shows – other things just took over. I would have had this album out ages ago but I got married and straight after that all these West End opportunities came up so I took them while I had them.”

It may have been some time since Knight released fresh material but there wasn’t a case of writer’s block when it came to putting pen to paper. The singer explained: “You’ve always got ideas, the creative mind is always creative and restless. As long as there are things to inspire, you can get on with it. So many things have been going on in the world that there’s so much towrite about.”
