It’s hard to believe that the Scottish band Texas have been around for 25 years but to celebrate their anniversary they are releasing a brand new album, The Conversation on May 20th. Slightly before the release of the album on May 13th we will be able to download the single of the same title.
Texas have been laying low with the lead singer Sharleen Spiteri actually doing some solo stuff and it has been nearly 8 years since we have had any material from the full band. The Conversation features the works of Spiteri and the bassist Johnny McElhone but they also enlisted singer/songwriter Richard Hawley and Bernard Butler to help them out.
Recorded in Glasgow and London will the album be able to compete with their earlier material. The songs are full of joy and feature a rich melody, true pop songs. To launch the brand new album Texas will take to the stage at three locations in Glasgow, London and Paris but no dates have been announced as of yet.
