Nili Hadida, formerly one half of the French folk-pop outfit, Lilly Wood and the Prick, shares the live version of recent single ‘A Lot Too Much’. It is drawn from Hadida’s forthcoming self-titled debut solo album which is due for release via Believe Digital on January 4. Produced by Christian Rich (N.E.R.D, Diddy, Lil Kim) and mixed by Jimmy Douglass (Björk, Kanye West), the album will be trailed by UK and EU dates - these to come shortly.
The live version of ‘A Lot Too Much’ finds Hadida demonstrating the new album’s expansive versatility, producing something here that turns to trip-hop and downtempo electronica for inspiration. Comprising of eleven tracks altogether, Hadida’s debut solo album scores through bold pop melodies, R&B, and glittering electronica to conjure up an eclectic, but captivating palette of sounds.
Lilly Wood and the Prick quickly rose to success over the course of a decade, releasing three albums (two of which went gold in France) along the way whilst securing a string of hit singles, including the Robin Schulz remix of ‘Prayer in C’ (a track that would receive 3.5 million sales and achieve number 1 in France). Speaking about the reason for parting ways with Lilly Wood and the Prick counterpart, Benjamin Cotto, Nili says: “I really enjoyed being part of a band, however, I have to say that it is a permanent comprise between artistic point of views and personal wishes.”
