A new album from a VERY old band!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:33 pm

Dexy Midnight Runners will be releasing their first new album in 27 years!
 
Dexy Midnight Runners were first formed by Kevin Rowland in 1978 and managed to break into the UK chart for the first time in 1980with their hit single ‘Geno’ – a song about American R&B singer ‘Geno Washington’ (oh the irony… a band singing about a singer.) The song went on to become a number 1 hit in the UK and helped boost the band’s popularity.
 
The band released many more albums and singles over the years and also faced many issues. Here is a list (in chronological order) of some of the band’s important events:
 
1982 – The second album ‘Too-Rye-Ay‘ was released and generated a global hit with ‘Come On Eileen‘ and a sizeable follow-up hit with a cover of Van Morrison’s ‘Jackie Wilson Said‘.
1985 – After a three-year break the band returned with ‘Don’t Stand Me Down‘ but the interest in the band had started to slowly fade.
1986 – Rowland decided to go solo! He released two albums ‘ ‘The Wanderer‘ in 1988 and ‘My Beauty‘ in 1999.
 
Present day! The band announced on their Facebook page (why is everyone obsessed with Facebook these days) that their new album ‘One Day I’m Going To Soar’ will be released on the 27th of June. They also provided a short sample of the song which can be heard by going here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KAzn3vOfkzY.
