About this album

In late 2010 reports surfaced that Roberts had begun working on solo material due for a 2011 release. In August, Roberts said, “I’ve been in the studio non-stop doing all of my own song writing.” The News of the World reported in December 2010 that Roberts had signed with Universal.

Nicola Roberts announced her first single “Beat of My Drum” in May 2011 with the launch of her official website and Twitter account. The single, produced by Dimitri Tikovoi and Diplo, was described by Roberts as as “a fun record.” She stated, “It was important my first single was different to anything else around. I love that it’s a song everyone can sing and dance along to.” The single premiered on Thursday, 2 June, followed by the video premiere and the song’s release on 5 June. The single peaked at no. 27.

Roberts debut album, Cinderella’s Eyes, was released on 26 September 2011. Roberts spent a year working on the album with collaborators including the aforementioned Tikovoi and Diplo, as well as Joseph Mount of Metronomy and Canadian electropop group Dragonette. Mount said that Roberts “will surprise a lot of people.” Roberts was inspired by artists such as M.I.A., who has also worked with Diplo, and Robyn. Roberts said, “I’ve written the songs myself. I spent a year locked away in the studio every day. It’s quite autobiographical, very personal, so it’s scary to put it out there.” She described the album as having “a very British sound.

    The word "masterpiece" gets tossed around a lot on this site, but for this album it's appropriate.

    Musically, I've got no complaints against this album. But the engineers who mixed and mastered this album should be shot, the engineering is atrocious. [2] Xenomania next time, please.

    And yes this album is so underrated, well it received critical acclaim from critics but so many members of the public have not heard this masterpiece. Its one of the few albums where I love every single track and I can have it on repeat for hours on end.

    Someone with a fake account has uploaded it, her label hasn't which is why there's 3 tracks and only the instrumental version of Beat of My Drum appears in a radio when Nicola is selected to play.
