Lucy Spraggan is certainly rounding out her year with a bang. She returns on December 7th with not only the release of Balance, which can be listened to here but also the announcement of her forthcoming album of the same name, out April 28th, and her memoir, Process, out July 2023.

After celebrating the 10th anniversary of her first X Factor audition earlier this year with single Everything Changes – Lucy has been spending recent months putting the finishing touches to her new album and her memoir, Process, out via Bonnier Books in Summer 2023. Both the 14-track album (tracklisting below) and the book see her reflecting on her life till now. Feeling stronger, positive, and more empowered than ever, Lucy is ready to do everything on her terms and take 2023 by storm.

Talking about the forthcoming album and book, Lucy adds: “I’m very excited to announce the pre-order of both my album and my book! I’ve been working very hard over the last 18 months on my album and I’ve been working for nearly two and a half years on my book and I’m thrilled that both things I have created are gonna be released into the world! I’m full of anticipation and excitement and at points nervous about the release but I can’t wait. 2023 is going to be a big one!”

Lucy kicks everything off with her beautiful new single, BalanceBalance, produced and mixed by Philip Magee, is Lucy Spraggan at her most honest and reflective. The piano led track is a powerful and inspiring song which combines her fantastic voice with her thoughtful and optimistic lyrics. Balance finds Lucy accepting her past, learning from it, changing her outlook, and growing for the future. It’s a positive song of change which will be related to by many due to the honest and raw way in which it is written and performed.

Describing the song, Lucy adds: “I wrote ‘Balance’ after a session with my therapist. I had just come to the end of another relationship that didn’t work out and we were talking about what it was that I was looking for in life. During the session I realised that I’d been storming through life trying to find the right person for me when I hadn’t spent much time working out who I actually was. When I started to work on who I am and how I was going to find my own balance I realised that it’s not always best to do it alone and that sometimes it’s important to reach out for help. The first person I sent the demo of the song to was my therapist. I don’t know if any of her clients have done that before! Now, when I listen to it, I hear how much I needed her help and I am so grateful for finding some Balance.”

The song also sees Lucy reunite with music industry supremo Simon Cowell who has signed her to his publishing company and is an instrumental part in the forthcoming album and campaign. Speaking of them working together, Simon comments: “When I heard this song for the first time I was blown away, it is absolutely beautiful and the message is very important, especially right now. Play it once and then please play it again. Lucy and I have been working together over the past year. She is an outstanding song writer, as this new song Balance demonstrates. Lucy’s talent and work ethic is incredible and I’m so proud of her and I hope and believe this song is going to make a huge impact.”
