Norma Jean Martine announces release of new album ONLY IN MY MIND
Norma Jean Martine is set to release her blues inspired guitar-pop album, ONLY IN MY MIND on 9thSeptember 2016.
Entirely self-penned, Martine wrote or co-wrote every track on ONLY IN MY MIND including three tracks with Joel Pott (Athlete) The album was produced by Danton Supple (Coldplay) with two tracks being produced by Ed Harcourt. Martine’s trademark husky vocals, which ooze sex appeal whilst blowing the roof off every venue she performs live in, feature on every song on the album.
Martine describes ONLY IN MY MIND as fundamentally an album about love, “Most of the songs on the album are love songs and the many different seasons of love. Love isn’t just one emotion… it’s a weird word we use to describe an array of feelings, and sometimes you don’t even know that feeling can exist until it happens to you.”
‘ONLY IN MY MIND’s love-theme may well have been what attracted the producers of upcoming film ‘Kids In Love’ (starring Will Poulter & Cara Delevingue) to feature one of the album’s tracks ‘I Want You To Want Me’, in an emotionally charged scene during the film.
Another of the album co-write’s is ‘I’m Still Here’, which was written with the legendary Burt Bacharach,whom Martine recently performed ‘I’m Still Here’ with, at Bacharach’s London Palladium show.
It’s been a busy few months since Martine’s debut EP release ANIMALS at the end of 2015. Alongside co-writing the title track for Ronan Keating’s Top 5 album ‘Time Of My Life’, she has co-written and featured on two tracks ‘We Ain’t Dead Yet’ and ‘Paint’ on Pablo Nouvelle’s current album ‘All I Need’, out on Armin Van Buuren’s label Armada Music.
Martine’s most recent release ‘Freedom’ was her cover of George Michael’s classic 90’s track, which is currently the soundtrack to a multi-million pound Europe wide advertising campaign, reaching nearly 1million streams on Spotify.
