NEWS: New Hope Club Release Their Self-Titled Debut Album

New Hope Club release their debut album, “New Hope Club”!

New Hope Club have just released their highly anticipated self-titled debut album. The 13-track album features previously released singles “Love Again”, “Know Me Too Well” (featuring Mexican superstar Danna Paola) and “Permission”, which have amassed incredible streaming numbers and received great support from Spotify, Apple Music and BBC Radio 1. With help from renowned pop producer Matt Rad (One Direction, Little Mix), Iain Kirkpatrick and Jason Evigan (Dua Lipa, Jason Derulo), New Hope Club have put together an accomplished debut album that firmly positions them as one of the most exciting new bands from the UK.

The band say of the album: “For the last three and a half years we have been dreaming of releasing an album. From the day we met we have been writing songs together wherever we can, whether that be in a hotel room or on an aeroplane (which is where we wrote Karma). The album is a journey; we have grown up together, fallen in love, fallen out of love and learnt how to deal with being away from home, all at such a young age. All this time we have been dealing with these feelings by sitting down together and putting them down on paper – it is almost like our therapy. The album really portrays our lives thus far in New Hope Club, including songs that got us to where we are today, which is why we saw it fitting to have the album self-titled as New Hope Club”.

To celebrate the release of their album, New Hope Club are going to be doing album signings at three record stores around the UK over the coming days. The trio are set to continue their meteoric rise, when they embark on their UK headline tour in April. They will perform at the biggest venues they have headlined to date, kicking off at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on 5th April, and then make their way around cities including Birmingham, London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and Manchester before wrapping things up at Glasgow’s SWG3 on 16th April. New Hope Club are a force to be reckoned with on social media, where they have an overall reach of 10 million. They have picked up over 200 million total streams, garnered over one million YouTube subscribers and racked up over 1.6 million monthly Spotify listeners!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
