It has taken me a few days to get to this as the song was released on the day of the Paris gig and there was no official video released until yesterday.
OMG – what an uplifting song! Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and be having a shoogle about (got to get those Glaswegian phrases in when you can) . And I love the magic touch in the video of Mahalia appearing in Sarah’s spot mirror when she’s sitting at the dressing table. That’s fab.
It’s already worked wonders, this song, as it has brought the sun out in Glasgow.
Sarah’s highly anticipated debut solo album, ‘Sarah Brown Sings Mahalia Jackson‘, will be released very soon. More details to come!
I sadly missed the premiere radio play of The Anchoress’s new single, Show Your Face, this afternoon on BBC Radio 6 Music with Steve Lamacq as I was making my way into Glasgow’s West End (for my belated birthday treat of seeing GlasGlow at the Botanic Gardens – some vids and pics in a separate post for those interested. Lol) just as the show was starting.
But here is the video of the single on YouTube. What a fab video. And what a fab synth sound on the song. It’s well braw! I loved it when I heard it the first time at the Meltdown Festival in 2018. Geez! Feels like forever ago now!
But the other fab news is, we have a release date and pre-order details for the new Anchoress album, The Art Of Losing! Yaaaay! Awesome news! It’s a while off yet. It’s not out until next March, but Catherine tells me we will get to hear a new track each month until the album is released.
A bit of a curveball this week for MMM – the stonking new single from George Porter called Futureproof. Get your lugholes around THIS one, peeps! The SM link? George is of course frontman of SM tribute group Simple Minded. And the new single has been produced (and collaborated on) with none other than Gordy Goudie.
