Jimmy Somerville new album Homage

Jimmy Somerville new album Homage

We review the brand new album from Disco legend Jimmy Sommerville.

'Jimmy Somerville is back with his first album in several years and mainly features his beloved genre of Disco music.

From his early days with Bronski Beat through The Communards and onto his solo years, his music has been scattered with many memorable disco cover versions which he has now,added to an impressive catelogue of his own songs, all are lovingly produced with authentic horn blasts, disco strings and of course,Somerville’s skyscraping voice.

This unique voice is as strong as ever and when coupled with a lithe brass breakdown demostrated by the horn hook on Uptown Funk, the smooth and carefree Bright Thing  and the easy soul ballad, Learned To Talk, this brings the party to a slow dancing close.

Indeed Homage becomes more enjoyable as the album progresses.

The album will undoubtedly delight avid Fans of Sommerville and is just possibly going to introduce him a whole new generation..'

Produced by John Winfield,through Cherry Red Records.

Homage is now available.
