After a turbulent divorce process that was concluded in December last year, Kenyan songstress Mercy Myra has found a new lease of life and is set to release new music.
The US based Afro soul diva has bagged a deal with Atlanta-based label, Nu Royal Records. According to a press release sent to media houses, Mercy plans to collaborate with Grammy Award winning producer, Herman Little to create a “new” sound at her “new” home, Nu Royal Records.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Mercy to her new home here at Nu Royal. But I am even more excited to introduce the other side of Mercy that many have failed to witness. Mercy is an international icon with such powerful magnetism that transcends borders. This other side of Mercy is so gentle. The Nu Royal team is beyond excited to be working with such an amazing artist that can display such controlled strength through her music,” said Little.
Mercy’s eponymous album is slated for a September 2016 release, Word Is reports. However, the label targets to release new music by mid-May.
“We are moving steadily ahead to release the music as soon as possible because we know that this new material is needed right now. The upcoming record will not only change lives and give hope to people worldwide; but you will party while listening to it.” Said Little.
Speaking about the move, Mercy Myra said, “Music is my life. And through these last few years, I’ve experienced various challenges. But through it all I have recognized that music and life are quite similar. Music and life alike is a balance of order, rhythm and harmony.”
