It has been announced that Rebecca Ferguson will release her latest album Superwoman on October 14. This will be her fourth album, following on from Heaven, Freedom and Lady Sings The Blues.
The breathtaking album is set to be a personal affair. Derived from Rebecca’s heartbreak, it tells the tale of a lover’s abandonment combined with the bittersweet joy of giving birth to his child.
Superwoman is infused with the strength of a woman who has finally taken control – Rebecca is living proof that you can come back fighting, stronger, happier and more fearless than ever. The album will be the ultimate soundtrack for anyone who has ever had to build themselves back up after a heartbreak.
Of the album, Rebecca said: “This is honest and emotionally complex, I found strength and security writing this album”. She added:
It’s my most personal album ever and it’s brought me to a place in my life where I feel strong. I called it Superwoman because I learnt to embrace my vulnerability and accept it as a strength.
Superwoman was produced by Troy Miller (Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse), and features collaborators such as Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding, James Bay), Negin Djafari (Miley Cyrus) and previous collaborator Eg White (Adele, Florence And The Machine, Sam Smith).
The first single from the album is called ‘Bones’, which will be available from September 2. She is due to perform the song on the Strictly Come Dancing launch on September 3.
To coincide with the album release, Rebecca will embark on a UK tour later this year.

It is clear to see that Rebecca has grown from strength to strength since she made a name for herself on the X Factor in 2010. Since coming second to Matt Cardle on the show, the once shy and insecure artist has gone on to win fans across both sides of the Atlantic. Rebecca has toured across the UK, Europe and America and has won critical acclaim along the way. Not only has she been compared to her heroes Macy Gray and Aretha Franklin, but she has also been recognised for having one of the most distinctive voices in pop music.
