She tweeted: “My tracklisting for #STRENGTHOFAWOMAN, revealed. This is one of my most powerful albums. I’m excited to share it on 4.28 (sic).” Mary previously released one song from the track ‘Thick Of It’, and she has revealed that single is “so personal” to her, it was “painful” for her to record and put out.
Speaking previously, she said: “This song is so personal it’s almost painful to let out. I don’t hold back, though. It’s not who I am and there’s no way I am going to start changing now. We all deal with love and the emotions that we get tangled up in, and we got to survive, grow and remain honest to our best selves.”
‘Strength of a Woman’ is set to be released on April 28.
