Lucy Spraggan's new album 'Choices' is out now

No stranger to the spotlight, Lucy Spraggan is one of the UK’s most exciting and talented young female singer songwriters today. Despite shooting to fame after only a short time on the primetime TV show X Factor, she found herself hitting the headlines and becoming a household name as a feisty, female champion for the LGBTQ community. However, Lucy has successfully retained respect from fans and critics alike as so much more than another reality celebrity. An accomplished musician, Lucy’s  songs ooze with her personality and jaunty lyrics full of humour.

After the release of single ‘Animal’ in January, Lucy continues 2021 with her album ‘Choices’ out today, inspired by a rich tapestry of  life experiences, that have served in giving her the headspace to mature and grow, both musically and personally.  The tracks that have premiered from ‘Choices’ are now in excess of 2 million streams, have had an incredible 7 New Music Fridays on Spotify since last September, and the video for Sober has had over ½ million YouTube views.

Always frank and direct, 2020 was a hell of a year for Lucy; A break-up, an impending divorce, getting sober, discovering she was lactose intolerant, tackling cyber trolls head on, going through lockdown alone and getting a body and a 6 pack to die for after losing 3 and a half stone through weightlifting, running and a healthy protein rich diet.

An advocate for positive mental health, Lucy has worked closely alongside charities such as CALM and Alzheimer’s UK and joined the BBC’s anti bullying campaign for Children In Need.

Lucy was the first X-Factor contestant to have a Top 40 single and an album before the live shows began in 2012 and went on to have 5 Top 30 albums and to be the first female headliner of Kendall Calling Festival. With a big summer of festival bookings scheduled and lost for 2020, Lucy took the changes the pandemic wrought in her stride and focused on completing her album and launching her fitness brand.

Speaking about ‘Choices’, Lucy said “I actually decided the album was called Choices and then I wrote the song ‘Choices’. I was gonna call the album ‘Zero’ or something about starting completely fresh, but it needed to be about the fact that I’d made a lot of choices and this is what I’ve chosen and where I go from here. ‘Choices’ is kind of a nod to the old record and a kind of resolve for the whole album.”
