Famous British soul-pop combo DEXYS (1978–1986, 2003–present and known
until 2012 as Dexys Midnight Runners) just spread the message of the advent of
a new album baptized The Feminine Divine (only) their 6th LP.
It lands on July 28. Pre-order info here.
The upcoming album combines both Dexys classic pop sound, along with a new
synth-heavy approach. According to the band, the first half of the album sees the members channel some of their most popular hits, while the latter half verges into
a more experimental territory and is a “saucy, synth-heavy cabaret” unlike anything
they have released before.
Press-info: “After taking some time out to refocus his energy, Kevin Rowland came
back to music with a fresh perspective and new-found positivity. A personal, if not strictly autobiographical, record portraying a man whose views have evolved over time. Not just
on women, but the whole concept of masculinity he had been raised with.”
The first single is titled I’M GOING TO GET FREE.
Rowland: “The character is optimistically breaking free
from internalised trauma, depression and guilt.”
It’s a very-feel-good and instantly catching earworm. Soulful, jazzy
and frolicsome with Rowland’s distinctive voice upfront, a glowing
brass section, playful violins, a warm organ fragment, and 60s
harmonious, backing vocals. A hit!
