Simply Red

This Spring Simply Red release their eagerly anticipated new studio album 'Home', the first on their new label simplyred.com distributed in the UK by Ministry of Sound. To celebrate this release, Simply Red will play four special early evening shows at Ronnie Scott's February 11-14.

It's their first new album since 1999's 'Love In The Russian Winter' and will be released March 24th. 'Home' is very much a back to basics Simply Red album revisiting Mick Hucknall's r&b tinged roots with a gloriously modern twist. The first single, 'Sunrise', is out March 17.

Simply Red introduced themselves to the world in 1985 with the hit single 'Money's Too Tight (To Mention)' a Valentine Brothers cover taken from their debut album 'Picture Book' which also featured the US number one 'Holding Back The Years'. Since then Simply Red have sold over 45 million albums.

The seeds of Simply Red were sown in Manchester in the early 1980's. Mick Hucknall formed the punk band Frantic Elevators. After they disbanded, Mick put the first Simply Red incarnation together. 'Picture Book' was followed by a string of critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums: 'Men And Women' (1987), 'A New Flame' (1989), 'Stars' (1991), 'Life' (1995), 'Blue' (1998) and 'Love And The Russian Winter' (1999).

Propelled by Mick Hucknall's voice and passion, Simply Red are unique among their peers. The group effortlessly glide between highly original material and totally exceptional covers of other people's songs that suddenly become their own.

"I'm very much of that British tradition that started with the Rolling Stones whereby black American traditions are filtered into something that is original in itself and not at all derivative. Having a good, strong voice helps in that process too," says Mick Hucknall.

That voice is in great shape on 'Home' an eleven track album mostly produced by Mick Hucknall and long-time collaborator Gota Yashiki. It's a well-rounded collection that finds Simply Red doing what they do best. Highlights include the brass fuelled 'Fake', the glorious sway of 'Sunrise' and the affecting title track 'Home'. As usual, the album contains some irrepressible covers notably the Euro swagger of 'Money In My Pocket', the Stewart Levine produced 'You Make Me Feel Brand New' and the raw emotional pull of the Dylan classic 'Positively 4th Street'.
