LA-based actress and singer Samantha Mumba is set to release her latest single and undertake a comeback nationwide tour in February.

Only Just Begun hits iTunes on February 21 and was produced by Justin Gray who has previously worked with Mariah Carey, John Legend and Joss Stone.

Now living in the US, 30-year-old Mumba has been focusing on her acting career in recent years and recently wrapped on a TV pilot titled Valley Boys, which is currently in "network negotiations".

Her latest film Home, in which she stars with Nightmare on Elm Street actress Heather Langenkamp, is set for release early this year. The film is about a religious fundamentalist who has difficulty coping when her mother decides to come out as a lesbian and marry another woman.

Mumba appeared on RTE show The Hit last summer to perform her last single Somebody Like Me which reached number 5 in the singles charts.

She is currently writing and recording in Hollywood with producer Brian Malouf who has worked with Michael Jackson, Queen, Madonna, Pearl Jam and Stevie Wonder for her forthcoming album.
