Boasting new remixes from Let The Machines Do The Work and Typesun, “Hard And Strong” is the second single from Alice Russell’s fifth solo album ‘To Dust’, which came out in February, elevating the much loved British soul and blues singer to a new level of mainstream recognition, with accolades including BBC 6Music Album of the Day.

The “Hard And Strong” single follows a slew of media coverage for the album, and heavy airplay on BBC 6Music and Radio 2. Numerous live radio sessions include stunning turns for Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles in BBC 6Music Live At Maida Vale (with “Hard And Strong” being picked by the BBC for its online and Red Button highlights); as well as Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2), Robert Elms (BBC London), The Selector, Loose Ends (BBC R4), and interviews include Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music), the 6Music Lunchtime Show, Echoes, DJ Mag, Blues & Soul and more.
