Dexys unveil new track 'Nowhere Is Home' – listen

First taster from new LP 'One Day I'm Going To Soar' LP now online

Dexys unveil new track 'Nowhere Is Home' – listen
Dexys Midnight Runners have posted the first track from their forthcoming new album 'One Day I'm Going To Soar' online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to 'Nowhere Is Home'.

The song is the first single to be taken from the band's June 4-slated new record, their first since 1985's 'Don't Stand Me Down'. It will be released under the name Dexys and features the band's members Kevin Rowland, Mick Talbot, Pete Williams and Jim Paterson as well as new recruits Neil Hubbard, Tim Cansfield, Madeleine Hyland, Lucy Morgan and Ben Trigg.

Speaking about the album, the band's frontman Kevin Rowland said: "I couldn't have made this record five years ago. Or 10 years ago. Everything seemed to fall into place. I already had many of the songs around for a while written with Jim Paterson and others but was struggling to take them forward. Then I realised I needed heavyweight help and ran into Mick Talbot. Soon it became obvious that Pete Williams should play the bass."

He continued:

It seems like the stars were aligned. Everything seemed to work, whereas previously, it hadn't. It seemed there were so many people willing this to happen and keen to put in as much time and effort as was needed to make it live up to its potential. This is a Dexys record, not a Kevin Rowland record.


The tracklisting for 'One Day I'm Going To Soar' is as follows:

'Now'
'Lost'
'Me'
'She Got A Wiggle'
'You'
'I'm Always Thinking Of You'
'I'm Always Going To Love You'
'Incapable Of Love'
'Nowhere Is Home'
'Free'
'It's OK John Joe'


The band have also added two extra dates to their UK tour to celebrate the album's release. They will now play Wales' Treorchy Parc and Dare Theatre on May 4 and Whitely Bay Play House on May 7.

Dexys will play:

Treorchy Parc and Dare Theatre (May 4)
Glasgow Cottiers Theatre (6)
Whitely Bay Play House (7)
London Shepherd's Bush Empire (8)
