Deacon Blue are proud to announce the band’s first official book, To Be Here Someday, in conjunction with This Day In Music Books.
The special project will feature exclusive interviews with the band, looking back on their 35-year history as one of the UK’s most popular live acts, as well as unseen photography, collectables and ephemera from the band’s own personal archives.
And, as with every great Deacon Blue gig, the band want their beloved fans to be right at the heart of their journey back through the years.
Deacon Blue would like you to contribute to their first official book, sharing your own personal recollections of how you fell for the band.
It could be a memory of watching them live over the years, chronicling the experience of the thrill of seeing one of the best acts in the business.
Or it could be about the songs that are forever tethered to a time and place in your life, the track you fell in love to, the album that soundtracked a period of your life, the songs from a band which have a special place in your life, whatever the reason.
