In addition to these new live shows, they will also unveil a brand new single ‘Humankind’ on September 9th 2022, an environmental rock/pop anthem with a sobering and thought-provoking video, which highlights the devastating effect of human behaviour on our planet. “When Jude played us the demo on her phone both Jules and I were struck by how this beautiful song could carry such a powerful message,” says Beverley Craven.

For those who just can’t wait for the tour to hit the road, they recently released the absolute best bits of their 2018/2019 live tour in the shape of their ‘Woman To Woman – The Live Concert’ album. This live album follows on from the hit studio album ‘Woman To Woman’, as unprecedented public demand for the girls to come together ‘live’ again became impossible to ignore. A 23-track classic album, ‘Woman To Woman – The Live Concert’, glitters with all the excitement, charisma and electricity that only comes from those rare live performance moments, as artists and audience bond face-to-face. Personally hand-selecting their biggest global hits from across the decades, this album is jampacked with chart busting hit after hit, taken from the live shows.
“Judie, Julia and myself are genuinely the best of mates, and we missed each other so much during those isolating months of the pandemic,” comments Beverley. “That precious time together, performing live on stage, was something that we all pined for. So getting back on the road to meet our fans with a second Woman To Woman tour was a no brainer. When Rumer agreed to join us too, it was the icing on the cake. We spent those pandemic days choosing the best tracks from our first Woman To Woman tour to compile into an album so fans can enjoy and reminisce on those live times together whenever they like.”
Beverley Craven is the BRIT-Award winning singer/songwriter who became a household name in the early ‘90s with the release of her eponymous debut album, which became a worldwide smash (selling more than two million copies).
