The supremely talented singer, songwriter and actress Kerry Ellis has today announced the release of her 4th studio album, Kings & Queens and a new UK tour.

Kings & Queens will be comprised of 12 tracks, including mainly original songs, along with a handful of hand-picked covers, this is the album on which Kerry truly finds her voice, fusing her signature musical theatre style with the contemporary country rock theme with which she has become synonymous. The album will be released by Westway Music on 12th May 2023.

Recorded in LA and London, and produced by the award-winning Mike Stevens (Annie Lennox, ELO, James Morrison, Take That), the album sees Kerry collaborate with some of music’s biggest names, including esteemed singer-songwriters Newton Faulkner and Jamie Lawson, as well as legendary Queen guitarist and personal friend Sir Brian May.

Also including a selection of stunning cover tracks, including Fire & Rain by James Taylor, the seldom re-recorded Tina Turner track Be Tender With Me Baby and a reimagined version of Carrie Underwood’s Love Wins.

This Spring she will embark on a UK tour performing these tracks live for the very first time. Playing at the Salford The Lowry, Birmingham Town Hall and the stunning London Adelphi on 14th, 15th and 16th May respectively, tickets are on sale from Friday 10th February.

Hailed as the West End’s favourite leading Lady, Kerry was catapulted to fame in 2002 when she landed the role of Meat in the original London cast of We Will Rock You. She has gone onto star in a range of acclaimed productions on both Westend and Broadway, including Les Misérables, Wicked, Oliver!, Cats and most recently the UK & Ireland tour and Barbican Theatre residency of hit musical Anything Goes.
