Three-time MOBO Award and two-time BRIT Award winner Lemar, one of the most successful male British solo artists of the last two decades, is back with his infectious 80s funk-inspired new single and his first new material in eleven years, ‘Future Love’.
The new track comes with the announcement of Lemar’s forthcoming seventh studio album, the first new album in eight years, Page In My Heart, due for release on 24th March. Lyrically, the album chronicles Lemar’s emotional journey over the last few years – the ups and the downs. ‘I’ve Been’ was written at a particularly low point and sees him reflecting about his journey in the music industry – “Everyone always asks me, Where have you been? Where have you been? This song is about that”. Though he may not have been releasing music, Lemar has been far from idle, producing for other artists, gaining credibility as an actor, making a string of TV appearances including ‘Little Darlings’ which aired on Sky Cinema in 2022, and hosting his own podcast, The Lemar Show.
Lemar will celebrate two decades of music and the 20th anniversary of ‘Dedicated’ live with two special nights in Manchester and London on the 27th and 28th of April.
Released in 2003, ‘Dedicated’ produced three top ten hit singles, ‘Dance (With U)’, ‘50/50’ and ‘Another Day’, and is certified double-platinum.
