Macy Reveals New Album & Single For 2018
The legendary singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actress Macy Gray has revealed her first track and official video for “Sugar Daddy,” taken from her forthcoming 10th studio album titled RUBY, out worldwide digitally and on Limited Edition RUBY red Vinyl on September 7 (Artistry Music, a Mack Avenue label). Directed by Christian Lamb and shot at Pour Vous in Los Angeles, the video stars Macy Gray alongside Evan Ross, and is inspired by his legendary mother Diana Ross’ portrayal of Billie Holiday in the 1972 biographical classic “Lady Sings The Blues.” The video premiered today on the national television networks BET SOUL and BET HER, as well as via Rolling Stone Magazine.
“Sugar Daddy” was co-written by Macy and fellow Grammy®-Award winning American singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor, alongside Bianca “Blush” Atterberry, Tommy “TB Hits” Brown and Thomas Lumpkins, and serves as the perfect taster of what’s to come from Macy Gray and her highly anticipated full-length RUBY.
In true Macy Gray fashion – transcending genres and styles – RUBY offers fans a slice of soul, blues, jazz, R&B and pop but always with a Macy Gray twist. The tongue-in-cheek and playful “Sugar Daddy” starts things up in the pop domain, and is sure to wet pallets for what’s to come from Macy in 2018. “Sugar Daddy” is available today on all digital platforms.
In other news, Macy Gray has announced she will be taking her band on the road across Europe, making stops in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, France and London.
