Tony Hadley Announces UK Tour Following New Studio Album
Following the announcement of his highly anticipated new solo album, Talking To The Moon. Tony Hadley will be touring this October. His first new studio album in a decade, Talking To The Moon signals a new chapter for the artist who defined a decade and much more.
Millions know him as the former front man of Spandau Ballet, which earned him the accolade of one of pop’s great vocalists. Thirty years on, the unmistakable voice of Hadley still brims with passion and urgency as it first did all those years ago. The album was co-written by Tony, with a raft of other talented songwriters. The first single Tonight Belongs To Us and How I Feel About You were both written by Toby Gad (credits include John Legend’s All Of Me and Beyonce’s If I Were A Boy.
Hadley, reflecting on the album’s title, says “Haven’t we all, at some point in our lives, gazed up into the night sky, stared at the moon and the stars, and wondered what it was all about? Maybe talked to the moon and asked for a little help, maybe looked for answers, or just been amazed at its beauty?”
Fellow 80s alumni Peter Cox and Richard Drummie of Go West contribute on Skin Deep, whilst other album highlights include the operatic Killer Blow (co-written with Blair Mackichan whose work includes Sia, Paloma Faith), and What Am I – a deeply personal track about leaving Spandau Ballet – co-written with Mick Lister.
At the helm of production duties were Gary Stevenson (credits include last year’s critically acclaimed The Lexicon Of Love II by ABC) and Mick Lister, with the album being recorded between Banbury, Aylesbury Vale and Carmarthenshire over the last two years.
Fans will get the chance to hear tracks from Hadley’s new album and some of the greatest hits of Spandau ballet this October.
