Emotional Rollercoaster is the second album by British singer Maria Lawson, set for release sometime in 2010. [1]

On Lawson's latest Christmas blog, she stated that her forthcoming album, Emotional Rollercoaster will be released through Metamorphis Music and distributed through Universal.

Due to Lawson's current appearance in the musical Thriller - Live, the album has been once again pushed for a later release date. [2]



Her new studio album ‘Emotional Rollercoaster’ is said to be her best work yet. It has been produced by Brian Rawling who has worked with the likes of Tina Turner, one of Maria's Idols. This album is said to have taken her down a route which is more organic; more live, more edgy and more intimate and sounds like Tina Turner meets Whitney. [3]

The first single, "Breaking Me Down" is written by Michelle Escoffery, Steve Lewinson, Pete Lewinson and Maria herself. It was released in early September.

On May 22, 2008, a blog was posted on her MySpace page, confirming that her new album was finished and that it would be coming soon. It was on June 27, 2008, on her Myspace page, that she revealed the official album title. The album was recorded while Maria was pregnant. She has said that this helped her put more emotion into the tracks and made her vocals stronger.

Several clips of possible future tracks on 'Emotional Rollercoaster' can be heard at present on her official website.

The second single is expected to be either the track "In The Middle Of The Night" or "These Walls". Both tracks are written by Shridhar Solanki, Ali Tennant and Guz Lally. [4]
