If you don't know Imelda May, prepare to be blown away. If you are already a fan, get ready to hear her as you never have before. She has found a new groove, exploring blues, soul, gospel, folk, rock, sensitive acoustica, cinematic drama and explosive balladry on a set of the boldest, most personal and intimately autobiographical songs she has ever written. Long celebrated by peers as one of the most sensational singers of contemporary music, Imelda May has made the album of her life with her 2017 release, Love Life Flesh Blood.
“I called it Life Love Flesh Blood because that encompasses everything,” says Imelda. “It's all in there: birth, sex, love, divorce and death. It's the story of my life.”
Imelda May completes the line-up for The Who's huge Wembley Stadium show in July, alongside Eddie Vedder and The Kaiser Chiefs. You can also catch her at the London Palladium in May performing an Evening of Celtic Soul – a special concert recorded for BBC Radio 2's Friday Night Is Music Night – which will see her backed by the 24-piece Leo Green Orchestra while performing hits by Van Morrison, U2, The Chieftans and Glen Hansard, plus others including Damien Rice, The Cranberries and Thin Lizzy.
