With a huge Autumn 2020 tour announced, Simply Red today release a new (0AM Mix) of ‘Tonight’. The track is taken from their 12th studio album, ‘Blue Eyed Soul’, which came out last year on BMG. Produced by Andy Wright, and remixed by Brazilian tropical house duo 0AM, the piano driven funk version of the track is a horn filled take on the album’s original tender ballad.

Recorded in London at British Grove Studios, all ten tracks of ‘Blue Eyed Soul’ were written by Mick Hucknall and produced by long time collaborator Andy Wright.
The results are simply sensational. Recorded as live, with few overdubs,
‘Blue Eyed Soul’ drew on inspiration from classic funk and soul: Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland and Tower of Power.
Simply Red have over a billion hits on YouTube, and have sold over 60 million albums since forming over thirty years ago. Holding back the years indeed.
