DEACON BLUE release title track from forthcoming 'City Of Love' album - Listen Now

2020 is a big one for Deacon Blue. They have announced a new album CITY OF LOVE which sees the multi-million selling band deliver eleven brilliant new tracks tethered by a singular belief – that even in the corners of a town or a life where no light falls, hope can prevail. Supported by a huge tour, the band will be coming to your city of love in October, November and December 2020.

Long praised for their live performances, the CITIES OF LOVE tour will see the band visit more cities in the UK and Ireland than ever before, including 7 arena shows and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

‘CITY OF LOVE’ is the fourth release of a prolific seven-year period for Deacon Blue. Their last three albums returned the band to the Top 20 of the UK album charts, the most recent posting at No 12, giving them their highest charting album in 23 years. The first single, the title track ‘CITY OF LOVE’, is released Monday 18 November [today] and this morning received its exclusive first UK play on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 show.

This has fueled a creative resurgence which returned the band not only to mainstream radio playlists but also back into the sort of venues befitting the stature of a chart-topping legacy act boasting 7 million album sales, two number one albums and 14 hit singles.

Ricky Ross: “We’re so looking forward to you hearing City of Love and getting out on the road, playing new songs and old songs too. Every time we tour now it feels like a celebration because our fans are still there and it’s a delight for us. We’re planning to make this the best one yet.”
