Revel In The Drama was released on 3 April 2020 on Bella Union to widespread critical acclaim, achieving rave reviews across the board from all the major music monthlies and newspapers. She was due to embark on a UK tour this Spring but all dates have now been rescheduled to the end of the year - see listings.
The album is a brilliant, bolder and broader take on her timeless pop classicism, a compelling diary of a struggle with self-belief and a celebration of liberation and survival, seven years after her Top 5 debut album and having overcome a life-threatening injury. Think of Revel In The Drama as Harvieu’s second debut album; a new beginning.
