Hey there,

Yes, I've recorded a soul album, pure soul and some good old rhythm and blues. New songs mostly, with two of my favourite songs covered too.

I had the dream of making an album that's influenced by Hi Records (Al Green, Ann Peebles and many other classic artists are on that label), but also felt like adding some rhythm and blues. So this is a "dream come true" side project, you could say.

Over 10 years ago myself and Jon Tiven, whom I'd met in New York, booked a studio called 900 Broadway Studios in NYC, where … a bit of trivia… Keith Richards had recorded his first solo album. This could only be a good omen. We recorded a bunch of songs we'd written, and a couple of my favourite cover versions.

I'm so happy with the results and just a little proud.

Usually I don't listen to my own music… ever… after it is finished. With this album I actually found myself sitting, listening again and again with even the odd tear coming. I have been receiving incredibly promising feedback from industry professionals that I consulted about it and that encouraged me to speak to the guys at Pledge Music.

The album was produced by Jon Tiven, who's credits include albums produced for Wilson Pickett, Bobby Womack and Willie Nelson as well as numerous awards and Grammy nominations, with myself adding production, making changes, re-recording stuff and bossing recording engineer Steve Honest around to get the exact sound I wanted - a goal from which I wouldn't budge, no matter what.

We recruited the help of world famous drummer Simon Kirke, had Sally Tiven on Bass and a bunch of other outstanding musician perfected the picture.

Now I'd love to release this album, along with singles and remixes.
Have Vinyl and a CD manufactured, rehearse with the musicians I've already found to take this on the road to a town near you.
And I'd like to ask for your involvement and help.

Yes, there will be remixes, I'm excited to say, as I have my eyes on a few wonderful producers. But this needs to work first!

Any money that's over my set goal will be used to record a house music album, which I've been planning for a long time. Too long….most of you will say, and I agree. And that album will involve going back to my house music roots for sure.

So, I hope I could interest you in lending your support for this album I'm very proud of, and hopefully I'll see you on tour soon. Let's do this together!

Below you can see what I offer. Just click on the item you want to pledge for and if you want you can add an extra dime to make this all possible. If we reach 100%, the album gets manufactured. If you don't have the money, no problem just help me and let the world know what I'm doing by sharing this campaign.

I hope that the special goodies and offers tickle your fancy. I'll definitely keep updating you along the way, with special photos and videos from behind the scenes of video making and other things I dream up.

Thank you so much for your support and let's make this happen!

Love

Billie Ray Martin

Pet Shop Boys will issue their thirteenth studio album SUPER in April this year.

The album follows up 2013's Electric and like that long-player, SUPER has been produced by Stuart Price, marking the first time Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have worked with the same producer on consecutive studio albums.

SUPER contains 12-tracks will be available on CD and gatefold vinyl. You can hear Inner Sanctum below. There is no news yet of any 'SUPER' deluxe edition.



Neil Tennant has already hinted that the 30th anniversary of Pet Shop Boys' 1986 debut Please will celebrated with a reissue at some point in the next 12 months, making 2016 a great year to be a PSB fan.

SUPER is released on 1 April 2016 - no fooling.

Cherry Red Records are to issue a two-CD deluxe edition of Haircut One Hundred's debut Pelican West at the beginning of March.

The album almost topped the UK charts when originally issued in 1982 (it peaked at number two) and features the hit singles  Love Plus One, Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl), and Fantastic Day.

This long-player has been reissued before, back in 1992 when the one-disc expanded edition offered five extra bonus tracks. All of those are repeated on this two-CD deluxe edition, along with a further 12 tracks, primarily made up of extended remixes from original 12-inch vinyl singles. A couple of these are claimed to be previously unreleased in the UK (Calling Captain Autumn andLove's Got Me In Triangles).

This set will undoubtedly be newly remastered and is released on 18 March 2016. It's a bit of a bargain at the moment at just £10.99 on Amazon UK.
