Blue, are back and are quickly regaining their place as one of the UK’s biggest and best pop bands. Their new album Heart & Soul is out 28th October and ahead of the release they reveal their next taster in the form of the beautiful Magnetic, out now. Listen here.
Magnetic is the third track to be released from Heart & Soul and the song harks back to Blue’s classic heartfelt ballads (If You Come Back, Breathe Easy, to name just two) and showcases the band’s top tier vocals and harmonies. Speaking of the track and the forthcoming album, Blue add: “We’ve never done an album where it’s just one style of music the whole way through and I think we’ve accomplished that again with this album. Magnetic shows off all our different vocal styles and we love a ballad just as much as our uptempo tracks! We can’t wait for everyone to hear the album, we are so proud of it.”.
They have previously released the brilliant single Haven’t Found You Yet which was added straight to the A List at BBC Radio 2 and was one of the most played songs in the country– listen here / watch the video here – and Dance With Me, a cover of 112’s flirtatious 2001 R&B classic – listen here.
This year also sees the four-piece embark on a career-spanning arena tour and release their sixth album, Heart & Soul. A celebration of everything that made the band special during their heyday, it’s an album that both nods to the past while pushing things forward. Heart & Soul is set for release on October 28th and features ten tracks of not only cheeky, playful pop bangers and huge dancefloor moments but also continues Blue’s penchant for aching ballads and swooning mid-tempos. Heart & Soul can be pre-ordered now by visiting https://Blue.lnk.to/heartandsoul and will be available on CD, Vinyl and Cassette, as well as on all digital platforms.
Following the album release, Blue will tour the UK with 12 arena dates around the country. Megan McKenna will feature as a special guest and it will no doubt be a show not to be missed. Get your tickets here https://Blue.lnk.to/ticketsnq.
