New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Atlantic Records) - British dance-pop sensation Little
Boots will release her much-anticipated full-length album debut, "HANDS" in the U.S. and Canada March 2nd, 2010 on Elektra Records. "HANDS," which was released in June '09 in the UK, features the hit songs "Stuck on Repeat," "New In Town
" and current single, "Remedy," which the NY Post recently praised as a "synth-pop gem" and named one of their "Top 209 songs of 2009." Beginning today, "HANDS" will be available for preorder as CD and limited edition vinyl at: http://store.elektra.com/collections/little-boots-us-webstore
Little Boots - known to her family and friends as Victoria Hesketh - is without question the most talked-about new UK pop star of 2009. She was named one of NME's Best New Artists of the year, won a BRITs Critic's Choice Award and BBC's distinguished "Sound of 2009" poll and is the first artist to have appeared on the Jools Holland show TWICE before an album release. Here in the U.S., Rolling Stone named Little Boots as one of their prestigious "Artists to Watch" and Nylon Magazine hailed, "Synth sensation Victoria Hesketh a.k.a. Little Boots is poised to reinvent pop one small dance step at a time."
The Blackpool-born performer first captured attention as a member of electro-indie combo Dead Disco. Opting to pursue a solo career as Little Boots, she assembled an arsenal of synths and began airing her developing work on YouTube for all to see. Earlier this year Little Boots' U.S.-only "ILLUMINATIONS" EP was released and served as an ideal introduction to her acclaimed brand of futuristic electro-pop. The five-track EP featured rare and exclusive tracks including the irrepressible anthem, "Stuck on Repeat" which started it all.
Little Boots, who completed a 5-city sold-out U.S. tour in the fall, will be back to kick off a North American headlining run March 2nd at NYC's Highline Ballroom. (See below for listing of announced dates - many more to come). Little Boots has been touring non stop around the globe for the last year playing major headline shows as well as hitting 33 of the summer festivals including the UK's prestigious Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds' Festivals, Scotland's T-In The Park, Japan's Summersonic and Denmark's Roskilde amongst many others.
