Just under two years since Duffy electrified the world with her multi-platinum, critically acclaimed debut album Rockferry, she’s back with a second album “Endlessly” scheduled for release on December 7th by her label, Mercury Records.
Recorded in New York, London and Spain, the album was co-written and co-produced by Duffy and acclaimed songwriter/ producer Albert Hammond and will be looking to emulate the success of “Rockferry” which was the 4th best selling worldwide album in 2008 and included back-to-back hit singles “Mercy,” “Warwick Avenue” and “Stepping Stone”.
Preceding the album is the catchy lead single, “Well, Well, Well”. Including Duffy’s New York-based musical collaborators – fellow Def Jam artists the Roots, the single is scheduled to hit the radio airwaves today (October 7th) on Hot AC and Triple A radio. Other song titles from Endlessly include “My Boy,” “Don’t Forsake Me,” “Love Struck,” “Breath Away” and the title tune, “Endlessly.” Songwriter Hall Of Fame inductee Albert Hammond’s legendary career spans four decades and includes such memorable signature hits as “It Never Rains in Southern California,” “When I Need You,” “The Air That I Breathe,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” and “To All The Girls I Loved Before.”
Making a meteoric arrival on the pop scene in early 2008, Duffy became one of only nine solo female superstars in UK chart history to hold the #1 spot on the singles and albums charts simultaneously, with “Mercy” and Rockferry. Coming to the US in March of that year for her premiere performance at SXSW Conference in Texas, followed by her first festival appearance at Coachella, Duffy then made several TV appearances including Saturday Night Live leading to her debuting in the Top 5 in Soundscan and was certified gold by RIAA in less than two months. Her smash single “Mercy” was heard everywhere, from the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy to episodes including ER, The Ghost Whisperer and The Hills, and promo spots for Entourage and Damages.
Winning multiple awards including Breakthrough Act Of the Year at the Q magazine awards; and Song Of the Year (“Mercy”) at the MOJO Awards, in 2009, Duffy won an Ivor Novello Award for songwriting, three BRIT Awards and a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album.
