"Sweet Revolution" Is Out November 3rd
Hannah White, one of the UK's fastest-rising singer-songwriters, will release her highly-anticipated new album Sweet Revolution on November 3. Having created an impressive songbook in recent years with her uniquely poignant compositions, the record is Hannah's first for The Last Music Company.
The album will arrive on the heels of its upcoming, atmospheric, driving first single 'Chains of Ours,' as White and her band continue a busy summer of festival performances including The Long Road in Leicestershire on August 25. She and husband and guitarist Keiron Marshall then embark on a prestigious itinerary as opening guests on revered British vocalist and writer Paul Carrack's UK tour from September 22.
It's the exciting culmination of a memorable year for London-based White, who began 2023 by winning Best UK Song for 'Car Crash' at the Americana Music Association UK Awards. The searingly autobiographical song came from the About Time album, which won rave reviews across the UK and far beyond. Now comes Sweet Revolution, a bold new chapter in a singular story, in which White has confronted and overcome the formidable challenges that inform her lyrics and make her work so strikingly personal.
The album is produced by Michele Stodart of UK folk-pop mainstays the Magic Numbers who, like pedal steel player Holly Carter and drummer Emma Holbrook, is a regular member of Hannah's live band. Sweet Revolution features 11 new compositions, all written solely by White, who sings all lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar and, on the song 'One Foot,' dulcimer, percussion and even didgeridoo.
The album also includes notable contributions by Marshall on electric and baritone guitar and vocals; Lars Hammersland on Hammond and Rhodes; and other friends such as BRIT Award nominee Beth Rowley, multi-instrumentalist Daisy Chute and (on the closing 'A Separation') Deacon Blue frontman Ricky Ross, with whom White became fast friends after she supported him on his extensive UK and Irish tour in the autumn of 2022.
Says Hannah with her customary openness: “This is a collection of songs about going from growing up on a council estate, and all of the hopelessness, the sadness & the loneliness, to homelessness and then finding a sense of power through words and music, and becoming an artist. This is the sweet revolution in my life.”
