Huey Lewis And The News return!

Huey Lewis And The News ‘Soulsville’ Out 18th October 2010 on Proper Records

Grammy-winners Huey Lewis and The News will be releasing Soulsville, their first album in nine years on Monday, October 18th on the Proper Records label.

Recorded at historic Ardent Studios in Memphis, the album features a mighty fourteen classic songs from the vault of Stax Records, including Respect Yourself and Got To Get You Off My Mind as well as the title track, one of the most heartfelt and soulful vocal performances that the inimitable Mr Lewis has ever committed to record. Considered to be the preeminent soul music label in America, Stax was home to artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T & The MG’s, and Isaac Hayes, and produced an astounding number of hit records throughout the 1960’s & 70’s. Ably paying tribute to the rich Stax legacy, Huey Lewis and The News, joined by their long time horn section, capture the energy and excitement of this important era.

“We’re especially proud of the collection.” says Lewis, who has been previewing material from the album while on a critically acclaimed summer tour. “There should be a number of surprises for everyone.”

Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, Huey Lewis and The News play a brand of straight-ahead rock and roll that has outlasted countless trends, selling over twenty million albums and earning Grammy Awards along the way. The group still performs around 100 shows a year. Lewis has enjoyed recent success on screen and stage as well, acting on the hit television show Hot in Cleveland, and performing in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Chicago.
