“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.

Check out the video for Better With You below:

With a career spanning 12 studio albums as Simply Red (five of them Number Ones), two solo albums, back-to-back ASCAP Most Performed Song honours (1987 and 1988) for Holding Back The Years, consecutive Brit Awards (1992 and 1993) for Best British Group, a Brit for Best British Male (1993), the 1997 MOBO for Outstanding Achievement, two Ivor Novellos (1992 Songwriter of the Year; 2002 Outstanding Song Collection), and some 60 million album sales, Mick is ready to continue the ride into the next chapter.
