Dexys are storming back to the states with the announcement of the US release of their new album, One Day I’m Going To Soar, on September 3, 2013 via Slimstyle Records. Featuring the new sleek and shortened name (formerly Dexys Midnight Runners), this is their first release in almost three decades… and it’s gotten RAVE reviews!
“One Day I’m Going To Soar is the soul album of the century. A burning, vivid, typically candid record which defies the received logic that artists of that vintage can only impart placid wisdoms.” – Simon Price, The Independent
“Intense, painfully frank, hysterically funny, and in the end exultant…a fearless experience that invests pop with more theatricality than the form can normally tolerate. (five stars)” – Keith Cameron, Mojo
“That it’s the work of a visionary one-off is beyond dispute… It might just be the best record of this year, and the best record of Rowland’s career… a slick-yet-spontaneous and deliciously soulful sound that often does for Willie Mitchell and Al Green’s Hi studios sound what Winehouse and Ronson did for Motown and Spector on BACK TO BLACK.” – Gerry Mullholland, Uncut
“One Day I’m Going to Soar is an idiosyncratic, brave record, and nobody else is likely to make one much like it. It’s sharp, thought-out down to the briefest note, and, astonishingly given the 27 year gap, it fits naturally into the Dexys story.”
– Tom Ewing, Pitchfork
One Day I’m Going To Soar will be released on September 3, 2013. It stands a testament to Rowland’s rare self-assurance and ardent commitment to painstaking artistry. One Day I’m Going To Soar is both a miraculous second act and the astonishing apex of a most brilliant career.
