Fresh From The Masked Singer, Gabrielle Is All Set To Do It Again With New Album And Tour

Harlequin proved to be hugely popular with audiences during the current season of ‘The Masked Singer’.

Ever since Gabrielle debuted with her take on Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’, she demonstrated a vocal talent which naturally demonstrated passion and poise, masterly control and an abundance of character.

While some guessed that the artist behind the mask was Gabrielle, for many it was their first introduction to one of the UK’s greatest voices.

Having departed the show at the weekend during the semi-finals, Gabrielle has a new album coming out - ‘Do It Again’ will be released on March 5th via BMG. The album has been launched alongside its lead single ‘Stop Right Now’,

The ‘Do It Again’ album features stellar studio recordings of the songs that Gabrielle performed on ‘The Masked Singer’. From elegant, timeless twists on recent favourites such as Billie Eilish’s ‘Everything I Wanted’ and Harry Styles ‘Falling’ to revisiting classics such as ‘Smile’ and ‘Fast Car’.

The album also features Gabrielle’s take on other iconic compositions, including ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song’ (most memorably recorded by both Roberta Flack and The Fugees) and Sam Cooke’s ‘Bring It On Home To Me’.

Gabrielle commented:
“I have loved putting my own stamp on the songs I sang on The Masked Singer along with some of my favourite covers and two new songs I wrote. The new single ‘Stop Right Now’ was written with Ben Cullum. It’s a song I’ve wanted to release for a while and I would dance to it in my kitchen. I always felt it needed to see the light of day! I am so happy that day has come. I’m really excited for people to hear this album and I hope they enjoy my take on the covers and the new songs too.”

Gabrielle recorded ‘Do It Again’ with Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith), who produced, mixed and mastered the album.

Gabrielle will follow the album release by embarking upon the ‘Rise Again Tour 2021’ this November. Any remaining tickets for the shows, listed below, are available here.
