SIMPLE MINDS – ” Direction of the Heart “

Posted: June 14, 2022 in MUSIC

Simple Minds will release “Direction of the Heart”, their 19th studio album, in October.

It’s the band’s first album of new material since 2018’s Walk Between Worlds and the first single is ‘Vision Thing’ – a tribute to Jim Kerr’s “best pal”, his father who passed away in 2019. 

“Direction Of The Heart” was written in Sicily, where both Kerr and Burchill live and recorded in Frankfurt (since they were unable to come to the UK because of quarantine rules). The record has been co-produced with Andy Wright and Gavin Goldberg. Sparks’ frontman Russell Mael features on one song (‘Human Traffic’).

Jim Kerr describes the album as an ‘Electro-rock’ record. Direction of the Heart will be released on 21st October 2022, via BMG.
