WILD YOUNG HEARTS, the long-awaited second album by effervescent UK pop trio Noisettes, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes UK album chart – will be released in the U.S.on Mercury Records in September. The new album’s hit single, “Don’t Upset the Rhythm,” was a #2 smash on the UK national chart. The follow-up single, the ’60s-tinged soul gem “Never Forget You,” is scheduled for release on both sides of the Atlantic on iTunes on July 7th.
WILD YOUNG HEARTS, produced by Jim Abbiss (Adele,Arctic Monkeys, the Rakes) shines the spotlight on versatile singer Shingai Shoniwa, joined by fellow Noisettes Dan Smith on guitar and bearded drummer Jamie Morrison. Shingai has been compared over the years to great voices ranging from Kate Bush and Deborah Harry, to Billie Holiday and Diana Ross, but Shingai – steeped in a panorama of blues, soul, jazz, disco, and funk – is totally unique.
