New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Rising pop star Emma Blackery has today released her brand new single 'Icarus', taken from her forthcoming debut album Villains out August 31st through her own RWG Records.

'Icarus' is a beautiful pop ballad about rising above problems and dealing with pressure. Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) has produced 'Icarus', and was also behind Emma's recent singles 'Agenda' and 'Dirt'.

'Icarus' finds Emma on a deeper, more pensive and stripped back tip to the two huge pop anthems that have preceded it, all of which are taken from her forthcoming debut albumVillains.

Villains is a record inspired by a period of reflection and one that invites listeners on Emma's journey from, as she explains, "feeling so paranoid that I risked becoming a person I didn't like, to letting go of all of that hurt".

The atmospheric album opener 'Villains Pt. 1' sees her declare, "I am a nightmare... designed to destroy" over a beat that drips with menace. Elsewhere, 'Petty' ("You used to call me pretty, then you took out the "r"") flirts with tropical house, and her restrained vocal on ballad 'What I Felt With You. simmers with longing.

By the album's explosive closer, 'Villains Pt. 2', Emma is forced to consider her own part in her downfall, asking, "Am I kidding myself, blaming somebody else, I'm my own biggest villain." On creating the album Emma says, "Writing the album was so cathartic. Music is my therapy."

In support of the album's release the Essex-born singer will be touring the UK and Europe extensively, which will finish with a headline show at London's KOKO on October 25th. Full headline tour dates can be found below:
