News: The Overtones Preview Upcoming Album ‘Sweet Soul Music’

2 min read

(UK) After three consecutive Top 5 albums, 750,000 sales and three sold-out headline tours, The Overtones preview their upcoming fourth album ‘Sweet Soul Music’ with the single ‘Something Good’ which impacts on March 2nd. To pre-order the album click here.

Produced by Julian Hinton (Seal, Rumer) and written by the band, ‘Something Good’ is a gloriously uplifting love song in the classic tradition of other Overtones originals such as ‘Gambling Man’, ‘Loving The Sound’ and ‘Superstar’.

‘Something Good’ fits seamlessly into the ‘Sweet Soul Music’ concept. The album is a tribute to doo-wop and soul pioneers such as The Drifters, Al Green, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations: artists that The Overtones grew up listening to and who have influenced them throughout their career. The Overtones transport their audience back to the heady 1960s, when ground-breaking television shows on both sides of the Atlantic like ‘Ready Steady Go’ and ‘The Tami Show’ launched such era-defining artists as James Brown, The Temptations, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Supremes.

Aside from working on ‘Sweet Soul Music’, recent months have seen the boys join forces with the legendary Michael Ball on ‘Let It Be Me’, which was the first single to be taken from his new album ‘If Everyone Was Listening’. Timmy Matley also triumphed as the winner of BBC Children in Need’s Great British Sewing Bee.

The Overtones will follow the release of ‘Sweet Soul Music’ with a twenty-four date UK and Ireland theatre tour which commences in June. The tour includes a major London date at the prestigious Palladium.
