Dexys Midnight Runners have announced full details of their new album ‘One Day I’m Going To Soar’, their first studio album for over 27 years.

‘One Day I’m Going To Soar’ will be released on June 4 and is the band’s first studio album since 1985’s ‘Don’t Stand Me Down’. It will be released under the name Dexys and features the band’s members Kevin Rowland, Mick Talbot, Pete Williams and Jim Paterson as well as new recruits Neil Hubbard, Tim Cansfield, Madeleine Hyland, Lucy Morgan and Ben Trigg.

Speaking about the album, the band’s frontman Kevin Rowland said: “I couldn’t have made this record five years ago. Or 10 years ago. Everything seemed to fall into place. I already had many of the songs around for a while written with Jim Paterson and others but was struggling to take them forward. Then I realised I needed heavyweight help and ran into Mick Talbot. Soon it became obvious that Pete Williams should play the bass.”

He continued: “It seems like the stars were aligned. Everything seemed to work, whereas previously, it hadn’t. It seemed there were so many people willing this to happen and keen to put in as much time and effort as was needed to make it live up to its potential. This is a Dexys record, not a Kevin Rowland record.”
