Texas 25th Anniversary Celebrations
ALBUM “ TEXAS 25 “
February 16TH 2015
TEXAS celebrate their 25th Anniversary in style with the release of their latest album ‘Texas 25’ which celebrates the very best of the multi-million selling (over 30 million album sales so far), multi-platinum, Ivor Novello Award winning band.
‘Texas 25’ contains four brand new songs and highlights from the bands greatest hits completely re-recorded and re-worked for 2015 with acclaimed NYC soul outfit Truth & Soul (Amy Winehouse, Adele).
Recorded in the Queens studio of Truth & Soul and mixed at The Black Key’s Dan Auerbach’s Nashville studios, working on ‘Texas 25’ was a chance for Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri and band mate Johnny McElhone to hear Black Eyed Boy, Halo, I Don’t Want a Lover, Say What You Want, Summer Son, The Conversation with new ears. ‘It’s almost like we’ve got who we are, 25 years later,’ says Sharleen.
