Caro Emerald returns to the UK in March for her largest UK tour to date – tickets for which are already sold out. On March 26th she’ll release ‘Dr Wanna Do’ as the last single from her phenomenally successful debut album ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’, which has now sold more than 1 million copies throughout Europe and been certified Platinum in the UK.
The scat-tinged ‘Dr Wanna Do’ is yet another effortlessly winning pop song from the Dutch singer – a record breaker in her homeland – who seems to have a limitless supply up her sleeve. It follows in the footsteps of her radio smash hits ‘Back It Up’, ‘Riviera Life’, ‘The Other Woman’, ‘Stuck’ and ‘A Night Like This.’ The album ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ was one of the top selling independent releases of 2011, and was re-released in November with a bonus live DVD of Caro’s performance at Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall.
In addition to her March tour, Caro has already announced two festival shows for the summer. 2011 saw her on the bill for BBC Radio 2’s Live In Hyde Park, and this year she’ll be performing for Hampton Court’s summer festival series, and also featuring at the Isle of Wight festival. A smash hit when she appeared on Jools Holland’s 2011 Hootenanny, Caro’s sassy combination of uptempo verve with old-school glamour is an unmissable treat live.
