Glenn Hughes announces new album “Resonate”

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the highly anticipated twelfth original Glenn Hughes album “Resonate” – released on Friday 4th November 2016. The album dovetails Glenn’s UK and European tour with American Grammy Award winners Living Colour, which kicks off in the UK on Tuesday 8th November (see tour dates listed below).

A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn concentrated again on his solo career. Sold out crowds were the order of the day, while touring non-stop throughout 2015, with shows in South America, Europe, UK, Japan and Singapore.

In addition, late in 2015, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame based in the USA, announced that Deep Purple including MKIII, are finally to be inducted after several previous nominations over the years. This was a culmination of a 40+ years career which saw Glenn leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands, including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.

2016 was his busiest year yet. With summer festivals and solo shows in the USA, UK and Europe, finally Glenn’s first solo album in over 8 years that will see the light of day! “Resonate” is truly a triumphant return to form for “The Voice of Rock”!

From album opener, “Heavy” to the very last chords of the closer, “Long Time Gone”, it promises to be a contender for ‘Album of the Year’. It features his live solo band members, Soren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers.

It might well be the most heavy sounding of his solo albums, but as is his trademark, musical diversity shines through and as Glenn commented upon completion of the new recording, “this album is the first kind of a complete Glenn Hughes album“.

No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card and the new album, “Resonate” will shine as a true Glenn Hughes landmark release.

Make no mistake. The Voice of Rock never left the building!

“Resonate” will be available in two configurations: regular cd and deluxe edition including one bonus track and DVD. Vinyl release will be made available via the Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music.

The Deluxe Edition includes the bonus track “Nothing’s The Same” plus a bonus DVD disc featuring the “Making of” the album documentary – “Heavy” (song video) and “Long Time Gone” (song video).

On the announcement of the UK and European tour with Living Colour, Hughes comments: “I’m super excited to be touring later this year with my band. Joining us will be my friends from the USA, Living Colour. An evening for all you SOULMOVERS.”

The ‘Voice of Rock’ will perform a collection of music from his extensive career, including selections from Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall and Black Country Communion as well as solo material from the new album “Resonate”.
