After a three-year hiatus away from the music, British R&B/Soul singer and songwriter Hayley Cassidy - formerly known as Hayley C - makes her long-awaited, hugely anticipated and greatly impassioned return to the UK music landscape with the resounding brand new album, Stripped.
As the title suggests, Hayley Cassidy strips it all away on her first record in four years and take things back to the very beginning where she made music freely and openly with a sound that has no boundaries, rules or conditions to meet. The outcome is a very excellent and intriguing 12-track affair from the London native that makes for a very captivating and compelling listen.

With production superbly provided by 3 Mindz - who have previously worked with the likes of Tinie Tempah,Paigey Cakey and Wretch 32 - and long-time collaborator GKid, Hayley Cassidy pours herself out musically on this record to the very last drop with some intriguingly honest and absorbing song writing about love, life and starting again, meticulous musical arrangements and a mind-blowing vocal performance to create a truly remarkable body of work with elements of R&B, Pop and Soul music fused in so beautifully, just for your listening pleasure.

From the thumping ladies’ anthem “Foolish” which was co-written by Disturbing London/EMI’s very own J Warner- who has worked with Tinie TempahJLS and Lioness among others - and the refreshingly introspective and slow-burning “360” to the commanding and up-tempo “Life After You” with its infectious hook and synth-heavy bassline to the strings-led and criminally short “Wish You Well” which closes the album rather gloriously and leaves you yearning for more, Stripped is nothing short of a master stroke from the amazingly talented Hayley Cassidy.

Now we would never go as far as to say something as ludicrous as “Hayley Cassidy is bringing UK R&B back” but on this Stripped album, we can safely say that she is certainly restoring the feeling. Listen to Stripped below:
