Cynthia Erivo – Debut Album Release

September 17, 2021

Grammy® and TONY Award-winner and Academy Award nominated singer-songwriter Cynthia Erivo today announces her debut album of original music as a recording artist Ch. 1 Vs. 1 set for release on September 17 on Verve Records.

A showcase of both Erivo’s vocal stylings as well as her pen—she co-wrote every song—the album is perfectly suited for this moment in culture forever marked by a global pandemic and ongoing racial reckonings. With the bulk of the tracks written and recorded over the last two years, Erivo saw it as “a duty to tell people something.”

Ch. 1 Vs. 1 is a galvanizing mix of reverential, socially-inspired soul (“What In The World,” “Hero,” Sweet Sarah”), heady alt R&B and pop (“Day Off,” “I Might Be In Love With You,” “Alive”) and vulnerable, gospel-tinged ballads (“A Window,” “Glowing Up,” “You’re Not Here”). It features co-writing and production support from Jamie Hartman (Lewis CapaldiJennifer Hudson, Celeste), Sean Douglas (Lizzo, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo), Kaveh Rasteghar (John Legend, Sia), Shakka Phillip (Dua LipaTove Lo), Harold Lilly (Beyoncé, Brandy) and Jack Splash (Alicia KeysKendrick Lamar), among others. The Album is Executive produced by Will Wells (Imagine Dragons, Quincy JonesAnthony Ramos).

Ch. 1, Vs. 1 is more than just a long-awaited debut album of original music from the celebrated singer; it is a sonic declaration of identity and humanity and is a sweeping reintroduction dripping in authenticity and truth.
