Duffy - Stepping Stone
Released September 1
Duffy’s new single ‘Stepping Stone’ is the latest single to be taken from her widely acclaimed, phenomenally successful debut album ‘Rockferry and is set for release on September 1st.
The track was penned by Duffy and Steve Booker who also produced the track, and will be released on CD and 7” vinyl as well as a two-track digital single available exclusively on iTunes.
‘Stepping Stone’ is one of the many album highlights, it is a song about self-possession, strength and restraint . The music is dramatic, pulsating yet sparse, compelling the listener to focus on Duffy’s remarkable vocals and evocative lyrics.
Duffy is soon to embark on a string of U.S. dates, before returning to the UK next month for three festival dates - V Festival (August 16th, 17th) and Hydro Connect (August 31st) - having already demonstrated her festival credentials with a stunning debut performance at Glastonbury.
Since the release of ‘Rockferry’ in March this year, Duffy has gone on to sell over a million albums in the UK making her the year’s biggest selling artist to date. ‘Rockferry’ has sold in excess of 2.5 million copies worldwide, and is now certified gold in fifteen countries (including the U.S.) and platinum in a further ten.
