Louise has treated us to another of the four new songs to come from her upcoming best of, “Greatest Hits” album, due out in June. “High Hopes” follows on from “Super Magic” earlier this year.
The track has been written by Tinashe Fazakerley (better known as Rationale), Dion Wardle (Conor Maynard, Grace) and Starsmith’s Finlay Dow-Smith, and is produced once again by Brother In Rhythm, Steve Anderson.
“High Hopes” is a more solid, euphoric sounding track, in contrast to the retro-Pop sound of “Super Magic” and offers Louise the chance to serve up a positive love song in the wake of love lost with a proud, uplifting musical backdrop. “I’m prepared, not even scared to let you in, you give me high hopes” sings Lou. Good on you girl!
The former Eternal singer has been feeding us track after track from the expanded new hits album with her own take on some Eternal favourites as well as ‘re-imagined’ versions of her own solo hits from back in the 1990’s. 2023 will see the 30th anniversary of Eternal’s debut single, “Stay“, released in September 1993 and it’s been 28 years since Louise herself launched her own career with “Light Of My Life” in September 1995.
Since then, she’s given us four studio albums, to date, and a string of top ten hits. Louise won Best Female Singer at the 1996 Smash Hits Poll Winners Party and was nominated twice for the Brit Award for Best British Female in 1997 and 1998. She has worked closely with Steve Anderson on this new project, and he brings with him over 30 years of success as a producer and as an artist in his own right. Louise’s “Greatest Hits” is due out on 2nd June in various formats but if you want all the new versions, you will need to buy the deluxe edition!
