London, June 2021: Joan Armatrading's new album 'Consequences' is released via BMG on June 18th, her 22nd studio album to date. 'Consequences' comes in CD, vinyl and digital formats and comprises 10 tracks in total, all written, performed and produced by Armatrading. BMG are also releasing an album track, 'Like', while Joan will be doing a special live globally streamed concert at 8.00pm GMT on July 31st.

The change of musical pace evident in the new album will come as no surprise to Joan's fans since she has always been a musical pioneer, ever since the release of her first album in 1972 when her then record company, by their own admission, had little idea of how to present her, being so outside the norm. It should also be remembered that Joan Armatrading was the very first female singer/songwriter from the UK to have international success with the songs she wrote and performed.

Joan has always gone where the muse takes her with no predictability attached, as demonstrated in the recently screened documentary about her career, 'Me, Myself, I'. With her heartfelt, direct and melodic trademark vocal style and lyrics that tell it exactly how it is, plus a strong rhythmic flow throughout, 'Consequences' is an album of some surprises for sure but couched in a passionate intensity that benefits from listening to it straight through from start to finish.

Since the release of her last album 'Not Too Far Away', Joan has been made a CBE (from an MBE); has become a Trustee of The Princes Trust; been awarded an Ivor Novello Fellowship; and received an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award, plus a Lifetime Achievement Award from Women of the Year. Joan completed a major sold-out UK and American tour in 2018 following a massive 235 date world tour in 2014/15. Among many other accolades she is the first female British artist to debut at number 1 in the Billboard Blues chart, where she stayed for 12 weeks and was the first ever female UK artist to be nominated for a Grammy in the blues category.
