Singer/actress Dana Fuchs will release Love To Beg on Ruf Records April 12. Fuchs is perhaps best known for her role as Sadie in the film Across The Universe, the hit 2007 movie built around the music of The Beatles. Her vocals also appeared on the film's platinum-selling soundtrack.
She co-produced Love To Beg with Jon Diamond and Kenny Aaronson and the album features 12 originals and a cover of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long."
Love To Beg is her second studio album. She also released a live album and has toured in support of it.
"We are so happy with this new record," she said. "I really feel like I finally captured all of the styles I am most influenced and inspired by: soul, rock, blues, gospel and roots."
In addition to her role in Across The Universe, she portrayed Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway musical Love, Janis. Fuchs is already on tour in Europe and will be coming back to the US for dates to promote Love To Beg.
