Gabby Young and Other Animals have announced their return this April with a brand new album, the third from the acclaimed North London songstress. One Foot In Front Of The Other is Gabby's most personal collection of songs to date, yet still retains the lush big band instrumentation for which she is known, with polished production by fellow Animal and partner, Stephen Ellis.
