La Roux Announces Album and Tour Details

Ellie Jackson; also known as LA ROUX, has announced her comeback album; the follow-up to her eponymous debut album. Her new album, titled Trouble in Paradise is set for release 7 July and will lead with her single ‘Let Me Down Gently’ which featured on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show.

The album has been a long-time coming for the London singer; who broke onto the scene in 2009 with her debut ‘In For The Kill’. Elly had hoped to get a new album out last year; however it was delayed. You can see the album artwork for the album above.
