Lisa Stansfield - Deeper [2LP]
Standard Edition / Also Available As 2LP + CD Box Set
Hearing Lisa Stansfield sing takes you back. In the late ‘80s and throughout the ‘90s, the smiley singer with the Elsie Tanner accent was the coolest pop star on the planet. Her seductive, soulful vocals and timeless dance-pop songs saw her top the charts on both sides of Atlantic, duet with George Michael and Queen, win multiple Brits and Ivor Novello awards, collect Grammy nominations and feature on The Bodyguard, the biggest-selling film soundtrack of all time. Four of her albums were international hits, selling more than 15 million copies and spawning over 20 hit singles.
On Deeper, Stansfield challenges herself without compromising her signature blend of pop, jazz, dance, Motown and Northern soul. It showcases some brand new signature songs, like the club-oriented "Everything" but at the same time reveals the British queen of white soul in a more melodic light with tracks such as "Billionaire." The smoothly interlocking collection is carried by Stansfield's bulky and multifaceted voice throughout. Deeper features funky groovy disco tracks, well-tempered soul-pop ballads, as well as laid-back easy-listening songs and it all comes together to form a well-crafted blend which sounds as strong-willed as Lisa Stansfield has proven to be.
