(UK) Boy band Blue have announced that they will return with their new album ‘Colours’ on 2nd March 2015. The fifth album from one of Britain’s most loved vocal groups is full of soulful harmonies, stripped back melodies and infectious hooks. The first single from the album, ‘King of the World ‘ released on the same day denotes the next chapter for Blue as they step into new territory.
Written and co-produced by Brian Rawling who has worked with Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole, One Direction, David Bowie, Cher and Tina Turner, ‘Colours’ is the feel-good collection of modern soul pop songs featuring six new originals, including the exuberant new single ‘King of the World.’ Effortlessly infectious and upbeat, the track features lead vocals from Simon Webbe and the flawless harmonies that can only come from fourteen years of making music together.
Elsewhere on ‘You’re The Only One’ and future hit ‘Nothing Like You’, Blue provides the perfect Sunday morning soundtrack with intimate lyrics and timeless melodies. The cover of ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’, originally by Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes, is reminiscent of Blue’s heart-gripping #1 hit with Elton John: ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ while ‘Hang On In There Baby’ is a vibrant show-stopper guaranteed to thrill, as Blue respectfully put their mark on the 1974 Motown hit.
Fourteen years in the industry has meant that Blue has become the generation friendly band, from childhood to adulthood, the foursome has become a part of British pop culture. Their likeability and infectious personalities have seen them through the good times and bad and their unity has overcome any hurdle put in their way. Back in the spotlight and stronger than ever, the four best friends and doting fathers have an exciting year ahead. They follow the single release by embarking on a sixteen-date UK headline tour in March, which kicks off in Portsmouth.
