THE INCOMPARABLE SINGER-SONGWRITER MACY GRAY IS SET TO RELEASE HER 10TH STUDIO ALBUM RUBY ON SEPTEMBER 21
(on Artistry Music, a Mack Avenue Records imprint)
The 12-track effort will be available on limited edition ruby red vinyl and across all digital service providers globally.
On the forthcoming set, Macy collaborates with music luminaries that includes guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. and producers Johan Carlsson (Ariana Grande, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Jennifer Lopez, Fifth Harmony), Tommy Parker (Janet Jackson, Kelly Rowland). She also enlists fellow platinum singer-songwriter, Meghan Trainor, on the first single “Sugar Daddy” alongside Bianca “Blush” Atterberry, Tommy Brown and Thomas Lumpkins. Media has already chimed in on the single and RUBY, and Idolator states “Macy Gray sizzles on the Meghan Trainor co-penned ‘Sugar Daddy’,” and Rolling Stone enthusiastically adds “…Our eyes are glued and ears are lent to all things Macy Gray.” RUBY offers fans a slice of soul, blues, jazz, R&B and pop with a Macy Gray twist.
Macy Gray’s unmatched rise to international fame includes record sales of over 25 million worldwide, plus various GRAMMY, Billboard, MTV and BRIT Awards nominations and awards. Her music has always set her apart from the rest and she is continually transcending genres, generations and cultures thanks to her signature legendary voice and willingness to experiment in soul music, R&B, pop, alternative rock, jazz, retro-disco and hip-hop. This artistry has allowed her to set her own path without concession since the release of her multi-award-winning platinum debut, On How Life Is, in 1999.
