Ira Losco has released her double album marking her 15 years in the music industry. The much-awaited body of work titled 'No Sinner No Saint' is divided into two CDs, one named 'No Sinner' the other 'No Saint' each including 11 brand new tracks as well as a bonus track.

Losco comments, "Following the huge success of 'The Fire' it was daunting, but once I started writing I realised this was not like previous albums.  There were a lot of ideas on the table to choose from. The changes that unfolded in my personal life surely had an impact in some way or other on my writing. It also seemed right to celebrate so many active years in music. It was my wish to give something more to all those who have supported me throughout these 15 years and we ended up with 24 songs."

"'No Sinner No Saint' is a manifestation of who I am. I'm neither a Sinner nor a Saint but a bit of both at different selected times in my life. The idea of the double album is to enjoy both sides in whichever order one wants."

All tracks were produced and mixed by Howard Keith at Jagged House studios. "This release is probably a first of its kind for Malta. It is certainly very unusual for an artist to release a studio double album nowadays. It has become a single's market which unfortunately also means relationships with fans are short lived unlike Ira's case," Keith says.

"The fact that it's unusual makes it challenging but interesting. Ira's at her best when challenged. Whilst the album has a very current sound to it, 'No Sinner No Saint' has lots of personality with an eclectic variety of genres retaining Losco's identified sound. I say this with every album but truthfully her vocals just keep getting better."  

The album also includes Losco's most recent singles namely 'We Are The Soldiers', 'OMG' , 'One in A Million' and an anniversary edition of one of her very first singles 'Love me or Hate me' which she announced at her sold out Concert last Christmas.

Last week Losco surprised her fans yet again with the release of the Coca-Cola anthem for the FIFA World Cup 'Colors' where she featured alongside Jason Derulo.  A few days ago she also performed her first series of upcoming Live shows in front of jam packed audience in Zabbar.

The next live concert will be in Gozo at Hondoq Bay on the 6th of July followed by an intimate performance at Infinity 11th floor, H Hotel on 14 July.
