Lady Sovereign’s New Album Jigsaw Out Today

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
