Paul Carrack unveils Soul Shadows

Paul Carrack will release 17th solo album Soul Shadows on January 15, featuring a song co-written with Chris Difford of Squeeze and a guest appearance by James Brown saxophonist Pee-Wee Ellis.

The launch follows his stint as keyboard player and vocalist in Eric Clapton’s touring band.

He tackled most of instrumentation himself, with the exception of drums, which were played by son Jack in their recently-completed studio.

Carrack says: “It’s not a garage any more. We got it up and running, and a lot of the songs have come from little jams, just me and Jack.”

Soul Shadows follows 2013 covers set Rain Or Shine, and features 10 all-original tracks plus a cover of Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland’s Share Your Love With Me.

It’s available for pre-order (opens in new tab) now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
