Chaka Khan Announces First New Album In 12 Years, ‘Hello Happiness’
The Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan has been bubbling since the release of her song ‘Like Sugar’. A song that has become one of the year’s biggest club anthems with the help of her #LikeSugarChallenge and numerous bootleg remixes. The track originally dropped as a limited edition release for Record Store Day. It is now officially the first single off her forthcoming album, Hello Happiness.
The Chaka Khan Hello Happiness album will be the 10-time Grammy Award winner’s first album in twelve years. The release date for Chaka Khan’s new album is February 15th, 2019 via Diary Records / Island Records. This album is expecting to entice newcomers to her world-class talent, while keeping her original quality to excite long-term fans.
With over forty years in music, Hello Happiness celebrates a lifetime in music and plans to prove that Chaka Khan is as inspiring as ever.
Another single, the title track from the album, has also been released. The single is accompanied by an ambitious official video that was directed by the award-winning Sam Pilling (The Weeknd, Run The Jewels, Major Lazer). According to sources, It depicts a series of characters whose true intentions are revealed as their individual stories gradually merge into a plot in which they’re all interconnected. The video is filmed in Los Angeles. The grainy washed out palette recalls some of the classic ‘70s movies.
The Chaka Khan Hello Happiness album is now available to pre-order from ChakaKhan.lnk.to/HelloHappinessPR with ‘Like Sugar’ and the title track both provided as instant downloads. It will be available on vinyl, digital, CD and cassette.
