Gemma Hayes' much anticipated fourth studio album, Let it Break, will be released on 2nd April and is an evolution of Gemma's unique style of music, combining prog rock, folk and electronica. The album is a collaboration with producer David Odlum, and features Paul Noonan of Bell X1 and Ann Scott. Keep Running is the first single to be taken from the album.
Over the years, Gemma's songs have appeared in countless TV programmes and films from Grey's Anatomy to One Tree Hill and most recently The Vampire Diaries and the upcoming Abigail Breslin movie, Janie Jones. Her debut LP, Night on My Side, received much critical acclaim from all corners, garnering a UK Mercury Prize nomination and earning her an award as Ireland's best female artist. Gemma's subsequent release, The Roads Don't Love You, earned her yet another best female artist nod.
Gemma recorded the album in Blackbox Studios, France and Westland Studios, Dublin. Produced by David Odlum and Gemma Hayes, Let It Break was recorded and mixed by David Odlum and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering Los Angeles. Let It Break will be released on Fullfill via Universal with a special edition boxset including a bonus CD and postcards.
