After spending the craziest year promoting “The 18th Day”, Estelle has been busy recording her sophomore album in London, New York and LA.  The new material, scheduled to be released on V2/J-did early in the new year, has been co-produced by Estelle, who has been developing her talents in the studio, as well as perfecting her lyrical skills.
 
EstelleShe has also hooked up with producers Dave Tozer, Michael Angelo (Raphael Saadiq, Jill Scott), Devo Harris (John Legend), Joe Buddha, Mark Ronson (Jay Z, Sean Paul, Rhymefest) and John Legend, for what promises to be a raw and infectious blend of hip hop and soul, and a real step forward for a homegrown artist who has already achieved much in her career.  In her own words:  “the next album will still be soulful and melodic, but a lot more gritty and real.”

Adding more strings to her bow, Estelle has just co-directed the video for promo release “Dance With Me” featuring Big P, Nathan, and Vis.  This will be released alongside a new mixtape on her own Stellarents label on 17th October.  “I have always released mixtapes and tracks on my own label, before and after I was signed.  I am constantly being asked when I am putting out new music and Stellarents allows me to keep people happy on a street level, while working on my album.”  “Da Heat Part 4” features JD, Asher D, Kele Le Roc, Royston, K9, Kardinall Offishall, Haidara and Skeme.
