Iconic singer Jimmy Somerville has announced the release of his sixth solo album Homage on 9th March 2015. The record, a collection of 12 original disco tracks, is a tribute to the genre that inspired Jimmy so much during his teenage years, and is available to pre-order now as both a Deluxe Gatefold Sleeve CD Edition and Limited Gatefold Sleeve 2LP Vinyl Edition from the Cherry Red store!
“A homage to disco is something I always wanted to do. I never really thought I could pull it off but I did, and it’s a really brilliant album to be perfectly honest” – says Somerville, exuding confidence and enthusiasm – “All influences, all the music I’ve listened to are in there. When I listen to it, it makes me think of being 15, sitting on the bed, taking the vinyl out of the sleeve, putting it on the record player, then just sitting and reading all of the sleeve notes whilst losing myself in the music…”
