Bo’s just released a new version of his gospel album New Soul Revival on Bobice.com. Bo describes New Soul Revival Revived as having an “ALL NEW MIX AND MASTERING WITH BONUS TRACKS “I’M NOT BROKEN” AND “GLORY HALLELUJAH” feat. WILLIAM LEE GOLDEN.”
The new single was recorded for but not really heard on the tv show It Takes A Church.
I’m going to hold off buying the album until there are some song clips, but fortunately the new track I’m Not Broken is up for preview and purchase on both Amazon and itunes. It’s a gentle, hopeful little tune, with very country instrumentation. Bo sounds quite lovely on it. What do you think peeps? Excited to have a bit of new music??
Today we heard the sad news that singer and songwriter Ben E King has passed away. His great Stand By Me is one of those songs that will last forever – just a few months ago, the Library of Congress added it to the National Recording Registry, an archive which”safeguards the words, sounds and music that embody who we are as a people and a nation.”
King’s own recording of the song will never be surpassed, but of course peeps are also very fond of Bo’s version from American Idol.
I’m also huge fan of Ben E’s work with The Drifters – those harmonies!
Bo was back out on the road with BST on Friday, and a very special guest showed up for the encore. (For those of you who haven’t been keeping up to date on Teh Hair Situation, take a deep breath before you click.)
I have “BO BICE LIVE & REVIVED” coming out w/ the single “Broken” soon!!
Live and Revived is probably the remixed version of New Soul Revival that Bo first talked about releasing last fall. Some fans heard a bit of Broken on a stageit last year, and report it’s a pretty ballad written by long time pal D. Scott Miller. I look forward to hearing it! (To hearing anything new!)
“Soon.” I hope that’s in real time and not Bo time.
