Six years after the multimillion-selling artist, Grammy Award-winner and Mercury Prize nominee last released an album, she is performing all over the world and is supporting Lionel Richie on his British tour. ‘It’s such an exciting time and it feels great to be performing new material,’ she says in her warm Yorkshire lilt.
