The album will include songs such as ‘She Used To Be Mine’ (Waitress), ‘Into The Unknown’ (Frozen 2), ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’ (Funny Girl), ‘Summer In Ohio’ (The Last Five Years), and a new arrangement of her Eurovision hit ‘Never Give Up On You’.

Lucie Jones on her upcoming album:

“That evening is still a blur! I still cannot believe how lucky I was to get to share those songs with such a warm audience and in such a special place to me. Having spent nine months as Jenna at the Adelphi, it was the weirdest and most wonderful experience to step out on to the stage as just Lucie! I relished every single second and I'm beyond thrilled that the memory of that night will live on forever in the form of this live album.”
