British alternative Pop/soul singer VV Brown will continue to experiment with bending the lines between music genres on her forthcoming sophomore album.
“I was going to the kind of experimental place I hadn’t been before,” said Brown.
For the untitled sophomore album, she has brought together a cast of producers and songwriters from several musical style including Evan Bogart (Beyonce), Jean Baptiste (Black Eyed Peas), Mr. Griffiths (Jem) and Bjorn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John), and Chuck Harmony (Ne-Yo).
As a maturing artist, Brown centers her attention on a serious topic with first single entitled “Children.” With the assistance of rapper Chiddy, Brown sings about “a generation that has uninspiring aspirations and believes material wealth is what happiness is.” The topic hit close to home with VV because of this summer’s riots in London. “Everyone has to be heard, because otherwise they will make themselves heard,” she says.
“Children” will be available September 20, 2011 and the second album will be released in 2012.
