CHESTER FRENCH, HOLLYWOOD HOLT JUST ADDED TO SUPPORT MAY NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
Lady Sovereign’s genre-breaking sophomore album Jigsaw is out today via her own label Midget Records, available at all major retailers and iTunes digitally (buy here).  Already a success in her native UK, the single “So Human” charted in the top 40 on Sunday in the week prior to it’s official release on download sales alone – a huge success for the only truly independent label in the charts!

In addition, Lady Sovereign has landed the Pharell-endorsed live band Chester French and Chicago-based rapper Hollywood Holt, making this tour a promising showcase for new artists and Sovereign’s new music.  More details on tour dates and album release events in NYC below.

Press on Jigsaw:
“On her second album, “Jigsaw,” the feisty rapper Lady Sovereign experiments with dancier beats, cleaner production and electronic vocals…the self-proclaimed biggest midget in the game is still going strong.” –BILLBOARD

“Sov lets her ponytail down as beats skip from electroclash to grime to dancehall, proving herself one hungry midget indeed.” – SPIN
