Gabrielle will release her new album 'A Place In Your Heart' this spring.

On Thursday (18.01.24), the 54-year-old star dropped the first single - and title track - from the upcoming record, which will be released on May 10.

The lead track from the LP has been described in a press release as a "perfect taster" for the full collection.

Gabrielle said: "I’m thrilled to be kicking off 2024 with new music, 'A Place In Your Heart' is the lead song from my new album of the same name.

"I loved performing the song during my 30 Years of Dreaming tour, it’s a booty shaker and I look forward to playing it at lots of festivals in the summer too."

For the track, she continued her creative partnership with producer and co-writer Ian Barter, who has worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Paloma Faith.

They previously teamed up on 2018 album 'Under My Skin', and 2021 follow up 'Do It Again', with the latter hitting number four in the UK album charts, making it her best performing LP to date.

She previously reflected on her success, and admitted it would leave her younger self in awe.

She told The Big Issue magazine in 2021: “My younger self would be shocked if anyone had said she would have a bit of fame coming her way and she was going to land in the charts with the highest ever new entry for a debut single by a female artist. ‘Dreams’ went straight in at number two and then went to number one!”

Gabrielle insisted her success was “sweeter” because she hadn’t received any encouragement.

She added: “If you’d said all that to the girl with the lazy eyelid who wasn’t the most popular girl and who, according to some people, shouldn’t really dare to dream? Wow.

“But I’m glad I didn’t know because it’s made that success even sweeter.”
