UK MUSIC NEWS: RAPPER SPEECH DEBELLE RETURNS TO FORMER LABEL BIG DADA

In 2009 Mercury Award winner Speech Debelle left her record label Big Dada under a cloud and blamed them for her disappointing debut album sales.

At the time she told 6 Music that sales of Speech Therapy suffered because of poor distribution by Big Dada records. Prior to her win, the album had sold around 3,000 copies with sales increasing to just below 10,000.”The Mercury Prize was on Tuesday, and on Friday there were no more physical albums in the shops. I wasn’t disappointed that it didn’t sell well, I was disappointed in the people I was working with.”

But fast forward to 2011 and it has been announced that she has returned to the label to release her second album Freedom of Speech.

In a statement the label said,

“Two years since winning the 2009 Mercury Music Prize for her debut album, Speech Therapy, and having ridden a rollercoaster through life since then, Speech Debelle is ready to drop her second collection of music,”

Freedom Of Speech will drop February 2012.

Hmmmm… this is an interesting turn of events. I wonder why she decided to go back to the label.

Your thoughts please….
