World | Hannah Williams: an album and a tour in Europe and in the USA

The Britsh singer Hannah Williams and her band The Affirmations are produced by the French booking company Base Production – thus considred an act “made in France”. They will be touring in Europe from November 13, presenting their latest album 50 Foot Woman, released on October 18. 

First spotted by Sharon Jones after the release of her debut album, Hannah Williams have been revealed to the international scene and became the new sensation of british soul thanks to her song “Late Nights and Heartbreak” sample on the track “4:44” featured on Jay-Z‘s eponym album.

Two years after, Hannah Williams comes back with 50 Foot Woman, a third album hailed by the international press. For the british website Music News, “her voice is a remarkable weapon” and the Italian magazine Rockerilla evokes an “undeniable vocal talent”. Produced by Shawn Lee, who also worked with Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys and Lana del Rey, 50 Foot of Woman has been released on the Italian label Record Kicks. With this album imbued with a vintage, soul and funk atmosphere, Hannah Williams is in line with the great soul artists.
