Petula Clark – Sacrifice My Heart (BMG) 
Petula Clark - Sacrifice My Heart

Release Date: Out Now

It’s not often I get to review a genuine musical legend on this l’il blog of mine so when the opportunity to hear some new material from Petula Clark came along it didn’t take much to get me involved. The Epsom born songstress now resides in Switzerland but is returning to her native Britain to tour extensively and show off her new album as well as belting out a few of her hits, surely. ‘Sacrifice My Heart’ is the first missive from the forthcoming album and it is a dark slice of electro-disco that broods as much as it seduces. Taking musical influence from the likes of Pet Shop Boys and early French electro, Clark’s voice is as delicate and sweet as ever like a finely crafted piece of pastry adorned with elegant cream and decoration. There is a lot to learn here for those starting out on their musical careers; Petula keeps it edgy, perfectly crafted and superbly encapsulates that finely balanced cross-roads at the start of a relationship. Bravo indeed.
