Jamie Cullum collaborates with UK's Queen of Soul Beverley Knight

I for one am extremely excited about Soulsville, the upcoming release from the incredibly talented Beverley Knight on June 10th! Her eighth studio album, it was recorded in one week in Memphis, at the famous Royal Studios. 

I was fortunate enough to get a preview of the new album which Beverley showcased for the first time with her amazing band recently at Cheltenham Jazz Festival on April 30th. Already a massive longtime BK fan, I was honestly blown by the new material. More than ever, Beverley's vocal ability is undeniably outstanding, her stage presence warm and authentic and the way she digs so deep into her soul just makes you love her even more! I must admit I shed many tears at that show, the emotion was so raw.

Another reason to be very excited about the new record is that Beverley has collaborated with Jamie! They duet on the classic William Bell and Judy Clay’s Private Number.  Pre-order the album now.

Beverley is currently touring the UK and then will return to the role of Rachel Marron in the West End production of The Bodyguard in July.
