Bruce Foxton has announced plans to release a new solo album later in 2012 via Pledge Music (an organisation that helps artists and bands design a specifically tailored fundraising campaign to raise money for their next release).
Bruce says, “This will be my first solo album since “Touch Sensitive” and I’ve worked with some really exciting artists while making it. First and foremost, the band, Russell Hastings & Mark Brzezicki, both very dear friends and fantastic players, we’ve had a ball recording together. Also on the album are Paul Weller & Steve Cropper! It was such a pleasure to work and hang out with Paul again. Then there’s the equally-legendary Steve Cropper. What an honour to have them both play on the album. I’m so proud of this record and hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your continued support.”
You can pre-order the album via Pledge Music along with a range of never-before-seen items and experiences, all of which you can pre-order or ‘pledge’ on. These items will be sent out when the album is released and allow you access to the project as a whole, viewing exclusive footage from the studio, behind the scenes and concerts, as well as exclusive photos, audio and news updates.
You’ll find snippets from 2 of the new album tracks in the player on the left hand side of the Bruce’s Pledge Music page. They’re called “Glad I Found My Tears” and “Number 6” which features Paul Weller on piano. Just go to http://www.pledgemusic.com/brucefoxton and click the grey ‘play’ button on the left hand side.
