Speech Debelle - Spinnin'

The Mercury-nominated Speech Debelle returns with Spinnin', the purest pop moment from her widely acclaimed debut album, Speech Therapy. 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. That's 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.

Press Release :
The Mercury-nominated Speech Debelle returns with "Spinnin'," the purest pop moment from her widely acclaimed debut album, "Speech Therapy."

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. That's 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 BBC's 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 BBC1's 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, she's not stopping now…

Recent press:
"If you ask us, Speech has got the best shot of them all at taking home the award in September" - Time Out

"Like Elbow's Guy Garvey, like Aidan Moffat, Kele Okereke, Alex Turner, Jamie T, Emmy The Great, Roots Manuva and Jarvis Cocker, she can make something arresting out of everyday words, where so many others merely shuffle them into cliché." - The Sunday Times

"The inclusion of Speech Debelle's debut album in this week's Mercury Prize nominations confirms the arrival of a great new British talent." - The Daily Mirror

"Though the opening odds are long it will become a front runner in the days leading up to the Awards" - The Times

"Debelle's troubled back story and glowing comparisons with Lauryn Hill make her the most intriguing candidate" - The Independent

"Is she a Mercury winner? Very possibly. My tenner's heading her way at William Hill anyway" - Evening Standard

"That's great isn't it? All the bookies are getting themselves in a twist and a spin over the Mercury Music Prize. Florence and the Machine are frontrunners at the moment, obviously, but Speech Debelle could climb that, I think… just a prediction." - Zane Lowe, Radio 1, 28.07.09

"Personally I'm putting a quiet pound on Speech Debelle." - The Guardian
