Katie Melua announces new studio album”Album No.8″ and releases first single “A Love Like That”

Following Katie Melua’s platinum-selling album “In Winter”, Katie has returned with her 8th studio album, aptly entitled “Album No.8”.  She has also released the first single from this album “A Love Like That”. The single was written by Katie and produced by Leo Abrahams who has produced for the likes of Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins and David Holmes.

This love song sets the tone for the rest of the album. Expert musicianship and beautiful lyricism is to be expected. The accompanying music video is set to be released today at 5 pm BST. Directed by award-winning director Charlie Lightening; famous for his work with Paul McCartney, Liam Gallahger and Kasabian and featuring English actor Billy Howle who has acted in Dunkirk, MotherFatherSon and Star Wars.

“I’m really proud of the video. I loved working with Charlie Lightening, we had lots of talks about how to make it a meaningful work and deal with the new limits on filming. We went with just me and Billy Howle on screen, we tried to show with subtle gestures and nuances the truth of love in its early stages. Hopefully, everyone can enjoy watching it.” Katie recalls working with Charlie.
