Chantel McGregor goes gothic on album No.2

Lose Control explores “depravity, magic and voodoo” - and arrives during UK tour

Chantel McGregor will release her second album, Lose Control, on October 9, she’s confirmed.

The follow-up to 2011 debut Like No Other appears via her boutique label Tis Rock Music and includes 10 tracks that focuses on her interest in Southern Gothic culture.

McGregor says: “I wanted to create an album that reflected the imagery and themes of that genre. I drew inspiration from the TV shows True Detective and True Blood, and I studied Tennessee Williams, Carson Mullers and Mark Twain. 

“I surrounded myself with imagery from Walker Evans and Clarence John Laughlin – all to immerse myself in the sinister, dark world of depravity, magic and voodoo, writing most of the songs from the perspective of disturbed, flawed characters.”

Lose Control is available for pre-order now. McGregor and her band return to the UK starting later this month:
