Rebeccas Ferguson Lady Day Sings The Blues

Scouse soulstress Rebecca Ferguson will take on Billie Holiday classics as she performs a series of intimate shows.

The former X Factor star is set to release her third album, Lady Sings The Blues, on March 9 – which marks 100 years since Holiday’s birth.

Rebecca’s follow up to 2013 Freedom was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, where artists including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald have recorded.

Her album, inspired by the legendary 1956 Billie Holiday release of the same name, will include her own twist on tracks Blue Moon, Good Morning Heartache and Autumn In New York.

It was produced by Troy Miller, who has previously worked with Amy Winehouse, Rumer, Laura Mvula, Dexys Midnight Runners and Chaka Khan.
