He’s gone all mid-80’s synthwave for his brand new single, “Unwanted”, and you know how much we love retro synth here at talkaboutpopmusic.com!
Rick conjures up his own 2-bit pop/dance number together with an arcade style lyric video to accompany the new track, his first since last years massive “Every One Of Us“, adapted from the new track on his best of album for The National Unsung Heroes Awards. “Unwanted” puts one foot in 1985 while keeping the other in 2021, sounding heritage as well as fresh and as crisp as the new day ahead.
“Unwanted” is another big pillar on Rick’s much welcome return to music back in 2016 with his album “50” and it’s 2018 follow up, “Beautiful Life“. With show stopping live performances with former Stock Aitken Waterman pal Kylie at London’s Hyde Park in 2018 and supporting Take That on their 2019 greatest hits tour, Rick looks set to stay around this time. “Unwanted” is utterly infectious and shows Rick’s knack for writing and recording a great pop anthem (his vocals are top notch also!). Welcome back Rick – again!
