Rising star and Bay Street Records artist Iris Gold welcomes you back to her world of “hippie hop” with today’s release of Woman. The 12-track album was produced and co-written by singer, songwriter, musician and Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart. Describing Woman, which was recorded at Bay Street Studios in the Caribbean, Gold explained, “I want people or fans of music and songwriting to know that this is not a disposable chewing gum album. It’s not one-dimensional like a lot of music these days.. It’s deeply grounded in many themes, especially women’s liberation, people’s freedom, and as a woman taking control of her sexuality.
Woman can be pre-recorded/pre-ordered HERE and the official music video for the album’s first single, “Talk All Night”, can be viewed HERE.
Of the new single, “Talk All Night,” Gold says, “Sometimes couples find themselves in a situation or mindset where a conversation drags on. or a possible problem that may never happen. Sometimes people just need a hug or physical contact. This song, in a cheeky way, reminds people of that. I sing from the perspective of the instigator in a way that feels liberating and sexy.
The album’s first off-track, “Girl Pick Up Your Drum”, had its world premiere on FLAUNT Magazine and has been covered by Earmilk, Vents Magazine, Cliché Magazine, This Song is So Sick, Find Your Sounds, and Moreover.
Another standout album, “Lover of My Own,” premiered on Wonderland Magazine, has been featured on Ones To Watch and picked up by Dork Magazine, The World Is Bond, Fame Magazine, Mundane Magazine, and more. Prince’s inspired song, “Crushed Velvet”, was chosen for a Sportsmaster campaign in Denmark.
Iris was featured in VOGUE Scandinavia to discuss her style and fashion while touring seventeen European countries in twenty days during her pregnancy, and was featured on the cover of the September 21 issue of Gaffa Magazine (the version Scandinavian from Rolling Stone Magazine). She has secured synchronized placement for a Vodafone TV commercial campaign in Germany and will appear on the 13th edition of TV 2’s music show “Top of the Pop” in Denmark this fall. Live appearances this summer include SPOT Festival (Denmark), The Great Escape (UK), Bergen Festning (Norway) and Varjo Festivaalli (Finland).
Iris Gold, born in London but raised in Denmark, quickly made a splash in the music industry, catching the attention of stars as diverse as Miguel, Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and Robbie Williams. Elle Magazine noted of Iris’ magical musical powers, “Iris Gold has it all – The looks and the charm to take over the world.”
Gold’s ongoing relationship with Stewart is just another win for the talented artist, who has continued to impress the music industry with her eye-opening approach to blending genres.
Few can harness the unique vision of music pioneers like the iconic Stewart, which is why Gold jumped at the chance to work with him. Together they would continue to develop his unmistakable style, drawing on his “hippie hop” vibe to further build on Gold’s unique sound.
A multi-faceted artist, Iris Gold is about to make her mark. Capitalizing on the buzz surrounding emerging talent, William Morris Endeavor signed Gold for global representation.

Dave Stewart commented on his collaboration with Iris on this new album, saying that “working with Iris has been an amazing experience. She’s on fire in every possible way. every day, ready to film or ready to write a new song…anything you could imagine. She was always on time and up for a challenge and she nailed it every time. She’s a star if I’ve ever seen one and she lives it every day.”
