Ray Quinn has released his brand-new single, They Say Love, out now. The brilliant track is the first original song to be released from Ray’s upcoming album, Undeniable, out 28th August via Northern Powerhouse Music and Absolute Label Services. The song has an upbeat pop core to go with an emotional lyrical story of navigating the ups and downs of life and love.
Speaking of They Say Love, Ray says “Love songs mean something different to everyone. Finding love is one thing but holding on to it and working on it is something totally different!”
Fans can pre-order Undeniable here and you can preview the album here. His first album release in over 13 years, the 10-track album includes 2 new original songs They Say Love and Smile 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 and Leo Sayer as well as more contemporary artists. The album was recorded in Ray’s hometown at Liverpool’s prestigious Parr Street Studios and is backed by a phenomenal orchestra. Ray has previewed two tracks from the album already – a brilliant version of Duffy’s Mercy, and a beautiful cover of singing legend Matt Monro’s If I Never Sing Another Song.
Speaking of the album, Ray said “The theme is classic songs, originally sung by some of my favourite singers, all backed with some of the best musicians in the northwest of England. 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.”
