The most enduring love stories often repeat themselves during different times, at different places, and in different people. This is certainly true for Estelle, the U.K.-based artist who just released her latest album, Lover’s Rock. Now, on Monday, February 11th, watch as the award-winning singer brings her music to life at City Winery in Atlanta.
As Estelle built the framework for her fifth full-length and first album for the newly minted partnership between her own Established 1980 label and VP Records, Lover’s Rock, the multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, and humanitarian realized a pattern. Her own relationship experiences bore a subtle resemblance to those of her Senegalese mother and Grenadian father who “got together, had children, broke up, found each other again twenty years later, and happily married a decade after.”
Lover’s Rock wouldn’t just be a reprise of this love story though. By the same token, the music from her formative years reappeared in the album’s DNA as she rooted the record in the reggae and Afrobeat sounds of her childhood. She can vividly recall classics from Dennis Brown, Freddie McGregor, Pépé Kallé, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, and more resounding in the house. Throughout her career, she carried a passion for these styles, bumping Vybz Kartel on the tour bus and sound tracking dinner parties at her Brooklyn pad with West Indies favorites.
In the end, Lover’s Rock communicates a narrative that’s as universal as it is personal for Estelle as well as a love story for the ages. “I want people to walk away with a feeling that love is possible,” she says. “That’s why I’m sharing all of this. Hopefully, we all get that feeling.”
