Video: Alice Russell (w/Harry Shearer, no less)


Advance taste of
upcoming 2013 album.


By Blurt Staff


British soul-shouter Alice Russell’s 2009 album Pot of Gold was an under-the-radar gem,
and her more recent Latin-infused work with
producer/deejay/multiinstrumentalist Quantic
justifiably raised her
international profile. Now word comes that Russell has signed with the
tastemakers of Tru Thoughts. Her first single for the label, “Heartbreaker,”
arrives digitally on Nov. 20 and will feature the original version, acoustic
version, and a remix by producer Falty DL (Ninja Tune). Watch for the
full-lengthy To Dust in February.


“It is a broken hearted love song about the end of a
relationship,” explains Alice,
of the tune. “It’s about that time when you’re just emotionally exhausted by it
all and you are at the stage where you know you just have to let it go, and you
are resigned to it all being over.” Meanwhile, Tru Thoughts have premiered
the official
first video
 for the single featuring none other than the legendary
actor/radio presenter Harry Shearer.
