Editorial Reviews

Deacon Blue further their huge creative and commercial renaissance with the release of their brand new studio album, Believers.
Believers is the third part of a trilogy begun with The Hipsters in 2012 and continued with A New House in 2014. As such it continues a songwriting trajectory that is both rich, idiosyncratic and sharply honed and inevitably coloured by a sense of urgency to make sense of recent events, both personal and global.

First single The Believers is a song reflecting, in part, on the scenes of despair among refugees attempting to cross the Mediterranean and elsewhere but nevertheless cast as an anthem of hope.

Ricky Ross says: The song which starts off the whole album is The Believers . It s our statement that belief in the possibilities of hope and a better tomorrow is the side we choose to come down on. We once covered the mighty protest song, Which side are you on - a pressing question in today s political climate. This record is our best answer .

Expanding to talk about the album, Ross continues; You try to write something that would be good enough if it turned out to be the last thing you did. When you re young you think There s plenty more records I can do. It s not so urgent somehow. There are still plenty more records that I want to make. But I might not get time to do them all. That s a thought that certainly pulls the songwriting into focus.

Believers is the band s 8th studio album and consists of 12 tracks, written or co-written by Ricky Ross. The record was produced and mixed by producer and friend Paul Savage (Mogwai, Arab Strap, The Twilight Sad, Wu Lyf) who previously worked with the band on The Hipsters . Two tracks were mixed by Grammy award winning Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayor).

Deacon Blue s first album Raintown was released in 1987 to massive critical acclaim and went on to achieve a million sales. The album was quickly followed up with their number one, double platinum album When The World Knows Your Name . Since then the band have sold over 7 million albums worldwide.

Ricky Ross says of the album trilogy now completed with the new record: The Hipsters was about the band my love letter to Deacon Blue. Our last album A New House was about our country, Scotland. This album is about the journey we all take into the dark. You come to that point in your life where whatever you ve been told, whatever the evidence you ve been presented with you just don t know what the answer is. At which point you can only rely on instincts of your heart. You either take the leap or you don t.

It s been a journey. I started the tentative writing process in December 2014 and carried it on until May this year. In that time lots of things in the world have changed.
