Grandmono and Dramatico Entertainment are delighted to announce that Caro Emerald has entered the UK charts at Number 1 today (May 12th 2013) with her second album ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’.
Speaking from her home in Amsterdam, Caro said today “I’m humbled by this exciting news. It’s such a huge recognition for the hard work we’ve put in to this record. I want to give a big thank you to all the fans and everybody who has supported us over the last few years. Thank you!!!!!”
This is Caro’s highest UK chart position – her debut album, 2010’s ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ peaked at number 4. Released jointly in Britain by UK independent label Dramatico and Grandmono, the Dutch label set up by Caro and her producers & songwriters David Schreurs & Jan van Wieringen, ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ contains 14 of Caro’s trademark retro-pop songs, a winning formula that has connected with fans throughout Europe. ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ also entered the Dutch charts at number 1 this week, following the precedent set by ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ which subsequently spent a record-breaking 30 weeks at number 1.
Reacting to the UK chart news David Schreurs (songwriter/producer and head of Grandmono) said “It’s just unreal, the biggest imaginable crown on all the hard work we did since we started this project! Now it finally makes sense that we never sleep, always work and continuously focus on tiny little details. This is massive, we’ve always looked at the UK music scene with so much respect, and now it feels like we’re a small part of it!”
The second single from the album ‘Liquid Lunch’ will be released on June 17th. Schreurs, van Wieringen and Caro’s regular songwriter Vince Degiorgio team up with her guitarist Wieger Hoogendorp & Robin Veldman to deliver a perky, witty slice of fun that Caro performs in her distinctively sassy style. Having sold out her March UK tour (including a night at the Royal Albert Hall) Caro recently announced a 14 date September tour which is already sold out. Caro will be appearing on BBC Breakfast on May 14th before performing at Hello Magazine’s 25th Anniversary celebrations in London this week.
