Beth Hart is on fire. Right now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, working with some of the biggest names in music and rocking the house each night with that celebrated burnt-honey voice.
In 2016, the headline news is Beth’s latest album Fire On The Floor, (out October 14 on Provogue/Mascot Label Group), a release that even this fiercely self-critical artist describes as “pretty frickin’ good”.
Fire On The Floor is sure to build on Hart’s breakneck momentum. The twelve new songs on the album run the gamut of genre, reflecting Beth’s eclectic teenage influences, which took in everything from gospel, soul and classical to the seismic rock of Soundgarden.
As the singer explains, this latest record gave her an emotional release following the bitter-sweet sessions for Better Than Home. If there’s a theme that ties these songs together, it’s a sense of escapism following the hardest of times.
“We were still in the mixing stages for that album and I knew I had to make another record. Making Better Than Home was so painful, because one of the producers, Michael Stevens, was dying of cancer. It was a very emotional record to write and to make. I wanted the songs for Fire On The Floor to get born real quick.”
To celebrate the announcement of Fire On The Floor, Beth has released a lyric video for the title track, one of her favourite songs from the album. “I love Fire On The Floor. It’s just smouldering. I think it’s gonna be a fantastic piece to perform live. It’s filled with passion. It’s about when someone you know is so bad for you, but you can’t help it.”
