“A consistent sizzler.” – The Guardian

Co-produced by UK dance mainstay Switch, this comeback album sashays through a bunch of styles, taking on orchestral disco, blues, funk and even a little dubstep with a bright confidence. Hello Happiness pays respect to Khan’s funk and disco heydays, drawing a through-line via modern production’s showy window dressing.

The album arrives at an interesting juncture in Khan’s career. In 2016, still reeling from the death of her friend Prince, Khan, along with her sister, checked into rehab to treat an addiction to painkillers, stating she “knew it was time to take action to save our lives”. That sense of clarity permeates the album. Khan’s own incomparable pipes as blast-proof as ever, her first studio album since 2007 is as downright funky as Khan in her prime, with a modern twist.
