Shades of R&B permeate her songwriting...

LoneLady has shared her new single '(There Is) No Logic' - tune in now.

The Manchester artist reached new heights with her full length 'Hinterland', but the path to a follow up has been long, and full of twists and turns.

A few moments ago she escaped from her bunker, placing new single '(There Is) No Logic' online for fans.

It's a glorious return, one appropriately laced in colour for such an unseasonably warm and sunny day.

We're hearing shades of 80s electro in there, while the songwriting seems to incorporate elements from R&B's imperial futurism.

Post-punk by way of The Neptunes, it's intoxicating structure builds to that impeccable ear-worm chorus - truly, we've missed her.

LoneLady comments: “It just really encapsulates so many cool electro sounds and even some R&B vocal stylings. It was fun sampling ‘do’ and ‘dah’ vocals and running them through the sequencer to get that choppy-collaged effect, definitely a Cabaret Voltaire influence there. The technology gods were happy that day and it all came together in a really fresh and immediate way.”

She adds: “The melody came almost instantaneously and the lyrics almost wrote themselves. Some of these vocals are in fact the ‘scratch’ takes, or first takes.”

Tune in now.
