Release Date:06/10/2016;Notes:Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket including digital download. 2016 release from Kevin Rowland and Dexys (formerly Dexys Midnight Runners). The album is a body of work which sees Dexys putting their heart and soul into every track that Kevin has wanted to do since the mid-1980s. Drawing on Rowland and co-producer/core band member Sean Read's Irish roots, the album is a combination of their interpretations of Irish songs and other select compositions. Each song has been given at least the same level of attention and care as any of their own songs would be. This record is not a stop gap, or a fill in album. It is not a covers album. "The album is called Dexys DO Irish & Country Soul: DO it, not BECOME it," Kevin emphasizes. "We're not trying to be Irish, and we haven't used too many Celtic instruments on there. It's our sound. We're bringing our style to these songs. I'm just a guy who follows my intuition, my inspiration. This really felt like the right thing to do. We have put probably more care and attention into these songs than we might have done with our own songs, because the odds were high. It was important to get them right, and make sure every one of them felt relevant to us.";Track List:1. Women of Ireland;2. To Love Somebody;3. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes;4. Curragh of Kildare;5. I'll Take You Home Kathleen;6. You Wear It Well;7. 40 Shades of Green;8. How Do I Live;9. Grazing in the Grass;10. The Town I Loved So Well;11. Both Sides Now;12. Carrickfergus
