Fay Ann Lyons will release a brand new album in March. The singer who’s often the focus of much talk by the critics, launches her VP Records debut “Break The World” album on March 3rd.“It’s been a long time coming, this album embodies everything that I am as an artist, a mother, a wife. It incorporates my family, my travels, my world. Do not put me in a box, I am here to break stereotypes, I am here to break the world!”, she says.
Break The World bridges Fay Ann’s roots in traditional soca music with five brand new songs that fuse diverse global sounds, all seamlessly brought together by Lyon’s songwriting ability. Opening the album is the title track, “Break The World,” a pop-leaning, girl power anthem over infectious synths. Ghana meets Trinidad on “Block De Road,” the Afro-Soca jam which features guest vocals from Stonebwoy. VP Records says:
“The songs and sounds of the album hop across continents and genres as it unfolds.”
Her hit single “Raze”, delivered to fans in 2016, starts out with delicate vocals over buzzing synths, and gives way to pulsing Caribbean drum rhythms. On “Catch Me,” Fay Ann’s Groovy Soca Monarch and Carnival Road March Winning hit from 2014, pop music efforts are exposed.
The album is a cumulative body of work that brings together 15 years of original songwriting, versatile vocal range, and genre-defying production, says VP.
The album features production work by the likes of Richie Beretta, Stadic Sound Productions, Keron “Sheriff Mumbles” Thomas, Dwain Antrobus, Kevin Marshall, and Draien Bailey.
