“We’re very happy to be performing our album launch show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire” says Mick. “It’s been 18 years since we’ve played at this iconic venue, and we look forward to performing classics as well as new album material in a very special and intimate environment”.Four years since the triumphant Blue Eyed Soul, one of the UK’s most treasured bands return with brand new studio album Time – out on 26th May via Warner Music – with whom Mick Hucknall began Simply Red’s musical adventure. Over 12 vivid, heartfelt, life-giving tracks recorded in London with longstanding producer Andy Wright, including first single Better With YouTime demonstrates an unerring ear for, feel for and passion for songs that move the emotion and the imagination.
