Singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading will release her 21st album, Not Too Far Away, May 18 on BMG. The new studio collection presents 10 tracks that, according to a press release, “take the deeply personal and make it universal…A love album of intensity that gets better on every listen.”

For the album, Armatrading has written, sung, arranged and produced all the tracks as well as playing all the instruments except for drums, which she programmed. The album is her follow-up to the genre-based trilogy, This Charming Life (2010), the jazz-oriented Starlight (2012) and the blues-based Into The Blues (2007), which topped the Billboard Blues Chart, making Armatrading the first British female artist ever to do so.
