Nation’s Sweetheart Martine McCutcheon Announces New Tour Featuring Warrington Date.

Singer and actress Martine McCutcheon has been back in the studio and now has plans to go on tour, with a show at Parr Hall.

With the imminent release of her first album of original music in over 15 years, Lost and Found, and a new single, Say I’m Not Alone, the nation’s sweetheart has announced five U.K. dates including a visit to Warrington on Sunday 12th November 2017.

Now 41, happily married and mother of a 2-year-old, the time felt right for Martine to return to the studio.

Martine has co-written most of the songs on the new album with her husband, the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jack McManus, and she has never sounded better.

The new single Say I’m Not Alone is a song like nothing Martine has ever recorded before; it’s big, bold and brash, and merges clanging guitars, thumping drums and a hard-hitting lyric.

Other album highlights include the rocky Any Sign of Life, the beautiful Stay with Me, which is a duet with Jack, and album closer Rebellion. The album is a deeply personal record that deals with everything from relationships to Martine’s debilitating illness which saw her unable to work.

Life brought this album about very gradually,” explains Martine. “It was a really unconscious thing; I started writing the songs at a time in my life when I’d lost everything.”

One of the nation’s original sweethearts, Martine McCutcheon first found fame as Tiffany Mitchell in EastEnders before releasing her platinum-selling debut solo album You, Me & Us in 1999 which contained the Number 1 single Perfect Moment.

In 2003, Martine memorably played Natalie in Love Actually before reprising the role for a one-off Comic Relief special earlier this year.
