Having recently collected his MBE for Services To Music at Buckingham Palace, Roachford releases new single ‘High On Love’. With echoes of Womack and Womack in both its celebration of the purity of love and the acknowledgement that love can often come from a dark place, ‘High On Love’ follows the Radio 2 A Listed single ‘Love Remedy’.
“Recording High On Love was the most fun I’ve had in the studio in a long time. The song is uplifting but still has a depth to it. When you dig deep into yourself, the songs that come out tend to be brutally honest,” says Roachford. “I sometimes think that it’s easier for me to be more honest and open in song than it ever would be in normal conversation.”
The track is available to stream and download, or as an instant grat track when pre-ordering ‘Twice In A Lifetime’ from iTunes or the official artist store.
Throbbing with musicality and soul, ‘Twice in a Lifetime’ is the sound of someone at the top of their game, of one who knows his craft inside out, and is the album Andrew Roachford been gearing up to make for decades. Produced by Jimmy Hogarth, who has previously worked with Paolo Nutini, Duffy and Amy Winehouse, and featuring several members of Winehouse’s band as well as a duet with Beverley Knight, it’s full of grit and the most tremendous sonic energy.
