His first release in over 13 years, the 12-track album includes 4 new original songs They Say Love, Smile, No Man’s Land and Undeniable as well as 8 covers of some of Ray’s favourite songs. Ray has put his own spin on legendary classics by the likes of Matt Monro, Christopher Cross and Leo Sayer as well as more contemporary artists like Duffy and Zedd. The album was recorded in Ray’s hometown at Liverpool’s prestigious Parr Street Studios and is backed by a phenomenal orchestra.
Speaking of the album, Ray said “The theme is classic songs, sung by some of my favourite singers, all backed with some of the best musicians from around the UK. I’m so lucky to have the opportunity to sing these in my own way and bring something new to songs that date from the 60’s to the present day. Ever since I was a little boy, I grew up listening to the finest artists in entertainment, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr, Andy Williams and Sir Tom Jones to name a few. These artists and many like them paved the way when it came to music changing the world.”
