Working alongside Paul Weller, Steve Ellis has a new album ready to go on CD and vinyl, with the unusual title of Boom! Bang! Twang!
The album is released 50 years after Ellis had a huge hit with the classic Everlasting Love and sees a return to the label behind that single, CBS (via Sony).
As we said in the opening paragraph, the album has been co-produced by long-time fan Paul Weller, with the album also featuring Weller as well as Andy Crofts and Ben Gordelier (The Moons) and numerous other notables.
The end result is a mix of new songs and covers, with the first single off the album, Lonely No More, co-written with Paul Weller and said to be a ‘glorious Northern Soul-esque shaker’. As for those covers, they take on tunes from William Bell, Gerry Marsden, Jimmy Cliff and Tim Hardin.
All of which sounds promising. We’re hoping to review ahead of the release date, so do look out for that. If you want to take a punt regardless on it, the album is being released on CD and limited edition vinyl, both of which ate available now ahead of the 20th April 2018 release date. The CD is priced at £16.08 and the vinyl is at £21.99.
