The Boyzone boys are back. And this time they’re heading off to Motown, with Warner Music confirming the release of their new album ‘Dublin To Detroit’ late next month.
The concept album comprises covers of eleven Motown classics, including The Supremes’ ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, The Four Tops’ ‘Reach Out (I’ll Be There)’, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles’ ‘Tracks Of My Tears’ and Jimmy Ruffin’s ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’.
And given the album’s due just in time for the silly season, the album also contains the obligatory Christmas track, ‘What Christmas Means To Me’, originally recorded by Stevie Wonder.
“We feel very lucky to have been given the chance to record such an amazing collection of songs for our new ‘Dublin To Detroit’ album,” the boys said in a statement. “We could easily have done eleven more great tracks from that era but we hope there’s something for everyone in the choices we made. We now just can’t wait for the chance to perform them live for all our great Boyzone fans around the world.”
‘Dublin To Detroit’ will be released in Australia on Friday November 21.
