The Mercury-nominated Speech Debelle returns with Spinnin, the purest pop moment from her widely acclaimed debut album, Speech Therapy. Out on Big Dada on 14th September 2009.
Produced by Tunng mainman Mike Lindsay, Spinnin is a hugely catchy singalong of a tune, a feelgood route into the sometimes dark and emotional world of Ms Debelle.
Thats not to say the girl sacrifices any of her lyrical intelligence. Her words are packed with barbed one-liners, clever asides and great imagery. The press has been quick to proclaim her a star in the making and on Spinnin she takes the opportunity to shine.
The world most certainly keeps spinning for Speech Debelle. In the last few weeks she has featured three times on the BBCs Glastonbury coverage, had her photo on the front page of The Independent, been interviewed for major features in the Daily Mirror and the Sunday Times, appeared on BBC1s breakfast telly couch and insured that her rise from hostel dwelling and bad deeds to articulate, honest and abrupt pop star has become the biggest story of the Mercury season. And believe us, people, shes not stopping now
