Bleu is set to release his latest album 'Four' in the US and UK. Dynamic, bursting with hooks and polished yet highly personal, Four is the gifted singer/songwriter/producer's fourth release - complete with Kodachrome photograph of a four-year-old Bleu with his father gracing the cover. "I made this record just for me -- and for the fans," he says. These are the very same fans who, via the DIY fundraising site
Kickstarter,raised USD$27,000 (£17,000) in a single week so Bleu could independently release the album stateside. "Four is the adult version of Redhead, in a way," he continues, referring to his stunning, ambitious debut, which appeared on Columbia/Aware Records in 2003 and earned a spot on NPR's (America's hugely influential National Public Radio) Top Ten Records of the Year.
"It's me as a mature songwriter, loosened up and trying to move toward bigger, more personal themes."
