… “Listen To Your Heart”
Anticipato da “Listen To Your Heart”, “All This Life” è il nuovo album degli Starsailor in uscita il 1° settembre via Cooking Vinyl/Edel. In concomitanza con l’annuncio del nuovo lavoro, la band comunica le prime date dal vivo: l’apparizione a due festival inglesi in estate ed il tour nei club ad ottobre.
“Listen To Your Heart”, disponibile come instant grat preordinando l’album, è il primo brano che apre il disco, una canzone energica e stellare, come dichiara lo stesso James Walsh, frontman della band: “an energetic, emotional song. I think in doing what we do, you have to be emotion and instinct lead. If every decision was sensible, practical and mulled over, we’d never have done anything or got anywhere. It’s not always easy, so you have to keep reminding yourself.”
Starsailor originally formed at Wigan & Leigh Music College by music students James Walsh (Vocals, Guitar), James Stelfox (Bass), and Ben Byrne (Drums). They were soon joined by keyboardist Barry Westhead who cemented the band’s sound.
Signing to EMI Records, they shot to fame with their debut album Love Is Here in 2001. Featuring the Top 10 single ‘Alcoholic’, the album was released to great critical acclaim and reached Number Two in the UK Album Charts going on to sell over half a million copies in the UK alone.
For the band’s second album Silence Is Easy in 2003, Starsailor worked with legendary producer Phil Spector, alongside Danton Supple (Elbow, Doves) and John Leckie (The Stone Roses, Radiohead). The album also reached Number Two in the UK and soon went Gold.
Further albums On The Outside (2005) and All The Plans (2009) followed, with the band chalking up ten Top 40 hits in total, before the band went on an extended hiatus to explore other projects.
"All This Life"
“Recording the album was an intense and rewarding experience and we’re excited to get it out there. There’s a good mix of the aspects of the band people know and love, and a few changes in direction.”, continua Walsh.
Quinto album di studio, “All This Life” arriva ad otto anni di distanza da “All The Plans”, l’ultimo lavoro pubblicato nel 2009, e vede la band in una nuova veste, più energica, rigenerata ed in ottima forma, come dimostra la loro recente performance all’Isle of Wight Festival.
“All This Life” è stato interamente scritto dagli Starsailor e prodotto da Richard McNamara.
