Texas have revealed 'Start A Family', the first single from their upcoming album, Texas 25.
Listen to 'Start A Family' now:
'Start A Family' is released on February 16 2015 - the same day as the album.
The single is written by Texas's Sharleen Spiteri and Johnny McElhone, alongside newcomers Karen-Anne and Jack Townes. The song is classic Texas, beautiful soulful pop with a stunning melody built around Spiteri's powerful vocals.
The single's press release tells us 'Start A Family' will come with a ‘cinematic video starring longtime Texas fan Alan Rickman, who memorably danced the tango with Sharleen in the video for 'In Demand' back in 2000’. So that’s something to look forward to!
The album Texas 25 will contain three further brand new songs and highlights from the band’s greatest hits completely re-recorded and re-worked for 2015 with acclaimed NYC soul outfit Truth & Soul.
Last year, Texas announced that they would be taking their new album on the road for a UK tour in 2015.
