DANNY & THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD
THE NEW ALBUM – ‘WHAT KIND OF LOVE’
ARRIVES MONDAY 1st JUNE 2015
+ JUNE UK TOUR DATES
DANNY & THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD’s fifth studio album is now just around the corner as ‘What Kind Of Love‘ is set to drop into record shops on Monday 1st June 2015.
For those who can’t wait to wrap their ears around the country soul sextet’s new record, the full album is now being streamed as an exclusive première at Line of Best Fit ahead of its release next week. A track-by-track guide is also supplied by the man himself, Danny Wilson.
‘What Kind Of Love’ is being released via Loose Recordings and hits the shelves next Monday (1st June) on CD, 180g vinyl & download.
Hitting the road once again in June 2015, the band will take the songs of ‘What Kind Of Love’ to audiences across the country with a full UK tour. Kicking off with headline show at Cambridge Junction on the 9th of June the tour will take in 12 dates in all before rounding off at Brighton Bleach (26th). Full dates listed below.
Led by Sutton-based Danny Wilson (Grand Drive), Danny & The Champions Of The World spent much of last year on the road (one such night was captured on 2014’s justly acclaimed Live Champs!), touring across the globe. Following the end of their travels, the band regrouped in the studio to cut ten new songs with home team producer Champs bass player Chris Clarke at his north London studio Reservoir Sound.
As the new album’s title suggests, the LP finds Wilson and his bandmates exploring love in all its facets. “Every song on the album is a love-song of some fashion,” Danny explains. “These are love songs about friends, about ex-friends, about wives… All different kinds of love. Also, the title made me think of some mythical jazz or soul record – you could totally imagine an album on Blue Note called What Kind Of Love.”
A joyful riot of Caledonian soul, proud horns, country pedal steel and ballads that either break your heart or send it soaring, What Kind Of Love contains some of Danny Wilson’s greatest music yet. It’s the kind of album that will leave you itching to catch them live again – just as well they’re touring across the UK again in June then.
‘What Kind of Love’ – by Danny & The Champions of the World is out 1st June 2015 via Loose Recording.
The album will be available in all all good record shops or is available to buy from the Loose store here: http://looserecords.bigcartel.com/
