Texas launch new album with video
You may be struggling a little to get tickets to the two outdoor shows in Kelvingrove Park this July as they are already sold out, but they are playing other dates in different places.
Texas return with a new video to accompany their anthemic single ‘Tell That Girl’. Written and produced by Texas founders Johnny McElhone and Sharleen Spiteri with Karen Overton joining them in the studio following their successful collaboration on 2013’s The Conversation, Tell That Girl is a soaring modern pop song and the second single from the forthcoming album ‘Jump On Board’, out on 21 April 2017.
Filmed in a few hours at The Poetry Club in Glasgow (owned and programmed by Turner Prize nominated artist Jim Lambie) the band is joined by Game Of Thrones star Rory McCann (The Hound) on drums, along with Sharleen revisiting her former adopted home city, Paris.
One of the album highlights and a certified pop hit, the track powers along with punky guitars and more than a passing nod to classic British New- Wave.
