NAIMEE COLEMAN covers Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’

On Friday 4th August, Naimee Coleman returns with her second single, a cover version of Joy Division’s enduring classic ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’. Coleman takes a mellow stripped-back approach to the iconic song. 

Naimee says “Sad songs have always been my favourite songs and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ is such a heart-wrenching, honest and beautiful sad song. I’ve been performing it live over the last year at gigs and have seen how the song resonates with people”.

The track features on Naimee’s forthcoming album The Edges coming out later this year. The Edges is a collection of sometimes gritty, often melancholic, but always deeply personal songs. 

After signing with EMI Records in her late teens, Coleman went on to record her debut album ‘Sliver Wrists’ at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. For her follow-up, ‘Bring Down The Moon’ she worked with Tears For Fears’ keyboardist Ian Stanley, creating a blend of singer-songwriter pop that propelled her into a whirlwind few years.

Naimee toured extensively both as a headliner and opening act for the likes of Van Morrison, David Gray and Suzanne Vega. This earned her award nominations; a sizeable Japanese fanbase to go with her European one, and the opportunity to appear on the fabled British TV show Top Of The Pops as the featured vocalist on Aurora’s Top 5 re-imagining of Duran Duran’s ‘Ordinary World’

Naimee relocated to Los Angeles in 2004 where she embraced the chance to start from scratch in the California music scene. She fell in love, got married, wrote mountains of new music and toured the length and breadth of the country.

Returning to her singer-songwriter roots, Naimee wrote both for herself and other artists, with her music featuring in numerous films and TV shows for Disney, Warner Brothers and CBS. She performed as a solo artist and also as a backing vocalist for various musicians, including the Bee Gees Robin Gibb, whom she toured with as a backing singer in the US and Europe. 

After returning to home soil in recent years, adventures in motherhood put her music career on a brief pause, but she is excited to be back writing and recording. Having found her live feet again performing solo shows as well as opening up for Gemma Hayes most recently, Naimee can’t wait to tour The Edges.

‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ is released on Friday 4th August.
