SuRie announces details of new album [ˈdʌz(ə)n]

SuRie has today announced details of how you can get involved with her latest album Dozen [ˈdʌz(ə)n]

The singer who represented the UK this year has posted a link to a kickstater page with a message from her Label Manager Bjorn Dobbelaere saying:

Dozen [ˈdʌz(ə)n] is a concept album, dedicated to you; my family, my friends, my supporters and fans. I hope it will be a soundtrack for you throughout the year, the months, any season, any weather, and any mood.

The page then talks about releasing further material in the future saying:

Taking the decision to create a cover album before releasing new material of my own did not come easy, but having felt the connection with audiences throughout the UK during my “Eurovision Unplugged” tour, performing my own versions of timeless ESC songs, it felt right to take things a step further.

For this project, I carefully picked one song for each month of the year, the two conditions being that the song had to have the name of the month concerned in it, and, obviously, that it would be a song I connected with.

The result has become an eclectic collection, with songs by Nina Simone, The Foo Fighters, Prince, Carole King, Tori Amos, and others.

I set out to break them down to their bare bones, re-arranging them for my voice, my grand piano, supported by a live string section. I have always believed a good song still stands when performed with nothing more than a piano or a guitar, and it has been an amazing experience to do just that with the songs on [ˈdʌz(ə)n]. No drums, no synths, no fancy effects. They remained reflective, intense, and bursting with energy and love.

I hope [ˈdʌz(ə)n] brings you joy, surprise, relief, a release, insight, a smile, a tear, or whatever you need as we all find our way through the months and times together.

Risks and challenges

Whatever the outcome of this Kickstarter campaign, rest assured that the new SuRie album [ˈdʌz(ə)n] will go ahead and be recorded and launched in February 2019. However, without your help at this stage, it will certainly be a struggle to make all aspects of the album and live launch happen. As an independent artist, on an independent label, SuRie is so grateful for your continued support.

Bjorn Dobbelaere,
[ˈdʌz(ə)n] Producer
MMP label manager

    Hi Matthew. Regarding your comment, surely 1997 was the first year someone knowingly from LGBT community won? Regards 🙂

    1. Matthew Grocott says

      Hi Tina. Yes, Katrina was the first, but I don’t think she was out at the time that she won.
