Ian Bredenkamp Media has been Signed to the New 'Simply Red' Album & Accompanying Singles by BMG for South Africa

We have been signed to the new Simply Red album, and accompanying singles, by BMG for South Africa. Blue Eyed Soul is the first new Simply Red studio album in four years for the iconic act that has sold 60 million records in a career spanning 30 years.

Simply Red’s new album Blue Eyed Soul, is a ten track masterclass in funky, brassy soul music and emotionally charged ballads, available to pre-order now. It’s their first new studio album in four years and the 12th in their stellar career.

Lead track ‘Thinking of You’, which is available to download/stream now, will remind everyone why they first fell in love with the band, a horn fuelled swaggering tune that belongs on the dance floor featuring main man lead singer Mick Hucknall at his very best.

“At this stage of my career, I could do one of those dark reflective albums looking back on my life and all that kind of stuff that people tend to do at a certain age,” Mick Hucknall admits. “But I thought sod that! I wanted to make something punchy. I want to have a good time.”

“Working on a Simply Red album is a dream come true” says Bredenkamp. “Their catalogue has been the soundtrack to my life and the new material is super! We’ve had very encouraging feedback from streaming, radio, online and other media.”
