Mick Hucknall has been Simply Red’s songwriter and bandleader since the very beginning in 1985, aided by long-serving saxophonist Ian Kirkham since 1986. The current line-up has remained consistent since 2003, and the new tour will play to the core strengths of this fantastic band. "I want them to enjoy playing, for crowds to get up and move around, and everybody to put their heart into it. It’s all about capturing the groove," says Hucknall.
"Blue Eyed Soul" was recorded live with few overdubs at British Grove Studios in London. All 10 tracks, including the sensational new single "Thinking Of You", were written by Mick Hucknall and produced by long-time collaborator Andy Wright. Musical reference points draw on classic funk and soul: Wilson Pickett, Dyke and the Blazers, James Brown, and the roaring horns of Tower of Power. "I’m looking forward to playing it live because it’s real," says Hucknall of the upcoming record, “I want to have a good time”.
