synchronise 6 billion lives to one beat,
This review is from: Revolution of the Heart (Audio CD)
Howard Jones releases a brand new studio album on 10th October 2005 (UK DATE)titled 'Revolution of The Heart'. This will be his first new studio album since the highly acclaimed 'People' album released in 1998.
Regarded by many as one of the most influential of the artists that emerged from the UK in the eighties, Jones has particular credibility in the world of dance music where he is regarded as a synthesiser and programming pioneer. In recent years remixers have been clambering to re-mix his work which has resulted in several tracks such as Mohito's 'Slip Away', Milk and Sugar's 'What is Love?' Eric Prydz 'Things Can Only Get Better' and remixes of 'Revolution of the Heart' and 'Just Look at You Now' from this new album doing well in the UK Club Chart and other dance charts around the world.
It is not too surprising then to hear a strong contemporary dance influence on this new album. From the opening beats of 'Celebrate Our Love' the scene is set for an album that reflects the new twenty-first century Howard Jones. The classic Jones melodic song writing is still central to all the tracks particularly on tracks such as 'Respected' and 'Just Look At You Now'.
But it's the lyrics that have always been so important for Jones. A committed Buddhist, his fundamental belief is that the only way to make the world a better and more peaceful place is by changing the way we are on the inside...in fact by instigating a revolution of the heart. This album is also a celebration of love and its power. Lines such as 'synchronise 6 billion lives to one beat' say it all.
This new album is co-produced and co-written by Jones and
Robbie Bronnimann. Bronnimann is well known in the dance field for his work with projects such as Hydro, dba and tektonik^.
Jones will premiere this new album live in one of the English Towns where it all started back in 1982. The premiere performance of 'Revolution of The Heart' will take place at the old Friars Aylesbury venue, the Aylesbury Civic Centre on Friday 9th September 2005.
