All Saints’ Shaznay Lewis releases new solo single Miracle

All Saints’ Shaznay Lewis, has released her first solo single in 20 years, Miracle.

Shaznay says: “Miracle was a journey, a relentless writing process between Emily Phillips and me. We pushed each other, we changed it a lot until, and when I finally listened to it I realised it was a love song to myself, about the person I’ve been for the past 25 years and where I am now.

“It’s a message of encouragement to return to my love of writing with self-esteem, and confidence in the way that made me happy.”

Shaznay’s return to the spotlight

Since the release of her debut solo album, Open, in 2004, Shaznay has largely stepped away from the limelight. But is now ready to return with her first solo single in two decades. Much of her focus during those 20 years has been under the radar: marriage and motherhood and songwriting for other artists being her main focuses.

Shaznay started working on new music in the summer of 2022 with collaborators including Emily Phillips and Ant Whiting (Florence + The Machine, Sigrid), Ben Cullum (Celeste), Michael Angelo (Sam Smith, Not3s), Johan Hugo (Self Esteem, Diplo), Jez Ashurst (Maisie Peters, Little Mix), Moyses Dos Santos (Freya Ridings) and Charlie Stacey (Ezra Collective).

Listen to the new song below:

Shaznay launched a solo career in 2004 with her debut solo album, Open, and the singles Never Felt Like This Before and You. She has also written for other artists such as Stooshe  and Little Mix.
