Hear Her Voice: Vinyl 2LP


Release Date: 15 October, 2021

Across 21 tracks, this newly-compiled collection shines a spotlight on the most influential female artists from 1968 to the present day. Every track is taken from records highlighted as part of this year’s National Album Day with its theme of celebrating women in music.

With the selection of each song carefully considered, Hear Her Voice features innovators, pioneers and interpreters, artists who pushed against the glass ceiling and blazed their own trail – from performers like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield and Marianne Faithfull who battled against stereotype to singular vocalists and writers such as Siouxsie Sioux and Kirsty MacColl to today’s accomplished stars the calibre of Emeli Sandé and Florence Welch.

Hear Her Voice includes the soulful magic of six-time Grammy® winner Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’, Robyn’s iconic ‘Dancing On My Own’, Corinne Bailey Rae’s joyous celebration of music and empowerment, ‘Put Your Records On’ and ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ by 2019 Brit Award Female Vocalist winning vocalist Mabel.

Although Hear Her Voice features many different styles and genres, its unity comes from the power of delivery throughout – whether it be trip-hop pioneers Portishead (with Beth Gibbons), the jazz influences of Celeste (Recently Mercury-nominated and the first UK female artist to have a No. 1 album in five years), the post-punk energy vigour of The Slits, the street smarts of Neneh Cherry or the effervescent dance-pop of Ellie Goulding.

Hear Her Voice was compiled by Lisa Power, one of the world’s leading A&R Consultants and founder of “The breadth of female talent in the Universal UK catalogue is immense,” says Power. “And it is not overstating it to say that we were blown away by the overwhelmingly positive responses to be part of this collection, which showcases songs from some of the most critically acclaimed and enduringly successful albums by iconic women across six decades of music history.”
