NEW ALBUM UPDATE....... THE STORY SO FAR !

Hi folks, recording on the new album is going extremely well, the basic tracks are taking shape from the 20 or so ideas that had been written over the last 12 months.. Work is preceeding on around 14 songs,, with 12 to be taken forward for the final album. Drums were recorded back in early October with the talented Rob McEwen, and Steve is now close to completing the keys and rhythm guitar tracks.. Vocal recording will begin in January, and we hope to bring you a few vids plus further studio reports as things progress.

Studio album number 11 is tentatively scheduled for release in May 2017, through the AOR Heaven label.

Hi folks, apologies for the lack of updates over recent months, just to re-assure you, we are still very much alive and kicking !!

On that note, we are absolutely delighted to announce the following press release in regards to the extremely rare first album !! The amount of emails we've received in connection with this album over the years has been staggering. So much so, that finally, the album has been re-recorded in it's entirety (with a few bonus tracks thrown in) and will be available very soon. All further details, including release date and availability are below.

 

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

NEWMAN TO RELEASE RE-RECORDED FIRST ALBUM AS A LIMITED EDITION

Since the first album was released in 1997, Newman have established themselves as one of the leading UK melodic rock artists over the last 17 years. Signing to Escape Music in 1998, they subsequently released albums "One Step Closer", "Dance In The Fire", "Sign of The Modern Times" and "Heaven Knows" to great acclaim. Moving from Escape Music in 2007 Steve Newman created his own label Chrome Dome and produced another 3 albums, "Primitive Soul", "Decade", and in 2010, the well received "The Art Of Balance". After successfully rejuvenating the live band and playing shows in the UK including Cambridge Rock and the Firefest Festival, the album "Under Southern Skies" was released through AOR Heaven in 2011. Further live dates ensued both in the UK, Europe, and the US. In 2013 "Siren" was released to a great response, many stating this as one of the best Newman albums to date.

So, here we are today, 2014, and the completion of an idea that has been driven by you, the fans, because of all your support and belief in Newman over the years. The re-recording of the first Newman album offers the chance, not only to complete that collection, but to listen to these songs re-recorded, mastered with new technology, and added bonus tracks that were written at the time of the original sessions.

 

 

Newman 2014 will be available strictly as a limited edition release exclusively from www.newmansound.com and all Newman live shows in 2014

 

As well as the 10 original tracks, the album also features 4 bonus tracks:

1. If It's Love
2. A Million Men
3. Say You Believe
4. What Does It Take
5. Faith
6. Let Your Heart Rule
7. When I Wake Up
8. That Kind Of Girl
9. I Know You
10. Tears Are Not Enough


11. Backdoor Man (originally bonus track for Japan)
12. Crush On You (unreleased)
13. Love By Design (unreleased)
14. Stand Up (unreleased)

The album will be available to pre-order from 8th September 2014 at www.newmansound.com and released on 6th October 2014.

 

"I've been extremely lucky to have had the chance to release so many albums over the years, and work with some great artists, little did I know it would come to this when I was recording the first album. I actually said to myself at the time, if this is the only album I record then I will be proud of my achievement. So I can look back now, 11 albums later, and be truly humbled by all the fans I have around the world that support and believe in my music. Over the years I have had so many requests to re-release or re-record the first album, so finally, here it is !!."

"I certainly had great fun recording this again, as I did the first time, and it brought back so many memories of those times up at Universal Sound in London. I hope that if you were fortunate enough to purchase the original album then this is a good trip down memory lane or , if you are listening to these songs for the first time, they will create some great future memories. In any respect, thank you for listening, sharing, and being a part of this journey." Steve Newman
