Victoriously resilient, Estelle makes her return with new single “Conqueror” from her forthcoming LP True Romance. Expected this fall November 4th, much is to be anticipated on the independent project. Prior to the release of last year’s EP Love and Happiness, we hadn’t heard from Estelle since her 2012 album release of All of Me with singles “The Life” and “Thank You,” both loaded with heartbreak and triumph.
True Romance is a testament to life’s themes of passion, courage, true romance and the bullshit. In celebration of Misty Copeland becoming the second African American soloist in history (as well as within the last two decades) to join the American Ballet Theatre, Estelle recruited the talented Copeland to interpret “Conqueror” in a beautifully arranged visual prior to Tuesday’s release.
On “Conqueror” a resolved Estelle sings, “I’d rather stand tall than live on my knees/because I’m a conqueror and I won’t accept defeat.” The anthem-esque release couldn’t have better timing as the British songstress prepares to become a power player within the industry on her own accord.
With a successful cross over career laden with personal highs and lows, including split with label Atlantic Records last year, a now independent Estelle prepares to venture out on her own, releasing True Romance via her own label, Established 1980 Inc./BMG Rights.
