Lead Single/Video Released off Upcoming Katie Melua Studio LP, Ketevan

Gifted with one of the most gorgeous, svelte voices in modern popular music, Katie Melua summons an exquisite performance with “I Will Be There,” the lead single (and official video) off her sixth studio album, Ketevan. Its lyrics reassuring like a maternal lullaby, the lush, orchestral track was composed by Mike Batt, who has managed and collaborated with Melua since signing her in 2002 to his Dramatico Entertainment. Melua premiered the song in honor and in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during the Coronation Festival’s opening night, Thursday, at Buckingham Palace. 

Ketevan, titled after Melua’s given first name upon her birth in her native Georgia, is slated for release in the UK on September 16—Melua’s 29th birthday—while no information is yet available on a North American release.
