The Overtones have announced the release of new single Rose Tinted, out this Friday 25th June. Pre-save HERE.
The summery track is the third to be released from their upcoming album, 10 and follows on from a special re-recording of their debut hit Gambling Man, watch the video here and a brilliant cover of Shalamar’s A Night To Remember, listen here. Co-written by the band and Joe Cang, Rose Tinted was mixed by Jeremy Wheatley (Robbie Williams, Sigrid, Aurora, Corinne Bailey Rae, John Newman) and will be accompanied with a stunning video that is set to premiere tomorrow at 7pm HERE.
Speaking of Rose Tinted, the band said “This was the first original track we wrote as a new 4 and in many ways it really represents what ‘10’ is all about – celebrating the past but looking ahead to an exciting future. We loved showcasing another side to us. It has a chilled-out summer retro feel to it, inspired by Otis Redding. Perfect for your lazy summer afternoons, so get that wine poured and have a singalong!”
The Overtones will be releasing their album 10 on 30th July to mark their 10th anniversary. The album features nostalgic hits, original songs and two epic collaborations, including a special cover of Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You with long-term friend of the band Michael Ball. The second collaboration sees The Overtones reimagine Simply Red’s Stars and features West End star Marisha Wallace. The four-piece recently announced a deluxe version of the album, with extra tracks, a new neon pink sleeve and an exclusive track by track chat with the band. The album will be available in 5 formats – CD, Digital, Cassette, Deluxe Digital and Deluxe CD. Pre-order 10 HERE.
Last week the band did a livestream on their YouTube and Facebook to mark Men’s Health Week, 7 days to raise awareness of the health issues that affect men disproportionately and with a focus on getting men to become more aware about the health problems they have or could develop, to talk about their health more and then do something about it. During the livestream, they discussed a varied range of subjects from depression, fatherhood, vasectomies, anxiety, grief, sexuality, financial pressures and the importance of fitness. They hoped to use the live stream as an opportunity to build conversation about what helps and hinders men’s health and why. You can watch the livestream back here.
Since bursting onto the UK music scene ten years ago, The Overtones have racked up platinum record sales, released 6 studio albums, scored four Top 10’s, sold out tours across the nation, performed for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace and sang to one million people at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. They have firmly established themselves as one of the UK’s most popular live acts, best known for their exquisite vocals, distinctive style, charm and perfectly-pitched harmonies.
