Promised You A Miracle
RELEASE DATE NOVEMBER 11TH
Simple Minds return with something that they have never done before, stripping it all back and recording
a whole album acoustically. The first single from the forthcoming Simple Minds Acoustic album is
Promised You A Miracle where the band are joined by fellow Scot
KT Tunstall, whose distrinctive vocals, acoustic strumming and rolling bass groove transform a piece of
music that was the band's first 'pure pop song' when it arrived in 1982.
The genesis of Simple Minds Acoustic can be traced by
to a rare live session the band recorded for the
R2 Chris Evans Breakfast Show in September 2014,
promoting their 16th studio album, Big Music. The reaction, to the
band's surprise, was overwhelmingly favourable. With this in mind, the band begain 2016 by putting together an
acoustic set for
the Zermatt Unplugged Festival in the Swiss Alps. Having spent weeks
working on meticulously layered acoustic arrangements of their best-loved songs for that performance, they began hatching
plans to record them. The brilliant Simple Minds Acoustic is the end result.
