The 34-year-old from Neath, South Wales, releases Home Sweet Home on November 17. The album marks her return to Decca Records where she began her singing career ten years ago with Premiere, one of the fastest selling classical discs ever.

She admits: "It feels not only very exciting but very special to return to Decca a decade after they first signed me and to many of the people who helped launch my career. It amazes me to think that this is my tenth album and, for this, it seems the perfect place to be going 'home' to."

Produced by Patrick Hamilton and recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Home Sweet Home features collaborations with violin virtuoso David Garrett on Ode To Joy and British tenor, Alfie Boe on Barcelona.

The other tracks on the record are Land Of My Fathers, Sanctus (Elgar's Nimrod), Dreaming of the Days (Einaudi's I Giorni), World in Union, Segreti, Remember (Bach's Goldberg Variations), We'll Gather Lilacs, How Great Thou Art, Home Sweet Home, Anthem from Chess and We Are The Champions.

Many of the tracks will be performed during Katherine's tour which begins at Cambridge Corn Exchange on February 11, 2015 and concludes at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on March 14, 2015.

Katherine says, "Performing live for my fans is what I love most about being an artist. I'm so thrilled to be going on tour next year, getting to see you all and performing my new album. I can't wait."

Mezzo soprano Katherine has achieved meteoric success as the world's most prolific classical crossover artist. Her nine studio albums have sold more than eight million copies and gone platinum around the world. She has received numerous accolades for her recordings, including two Classical BRITs for the coveted Album of the Year Award.

In 2013, Katherine headlined the Queen's Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace and was awarded an OBE in the 2014 New Year's Honours List for her services to music and charity.
