'Believers' is out now
It’s time to introduce you to our new album. All that effort, joy and love and now it’s up to you! I hope you like it. We are incredibly proud of it and incredibly proud that 28 years after the release of our first album we are still here making music we and some of you love.
Very excited and a wee bit nervous. Thank you for your support old fans and new. It means the world to us. See you on the road very soon! Love, Lorraine x
Here’s eleven songs to take you on the next part of the journey. Old songs are old friends; we hope you can find it in your hearts to let these new ones into your life.
Love Ricky x
Making this album was a real joy for me. The songs, arrangements and recordings all seem to have such a positive spirit when I listen back to them. I really hope you grow to love this record as much as I do. Thanks for sticking around, Dougie x
To all the worthies out there, I hope you feel some of the power that went into this record and fall in love as I have. Enjoy the moments. Jim x
I vividly remember finishing the demo for “The Believers” and realising that Ricky was on to something special. That was just the beginning. I hope you love this record as much we loved making it.
It’s been a real joy to play a part in making the last three Deacon Blue records. I believe this one is the best of the three. There are many special moments on there that I can’t wait for listeners to discover them. Lewis x
