Skin will be releasing ‘Redemption’ as a single this December. This will be the first official single from the album ‘Breaking The Silence’ to be registered for the UK singles chart, and we’re hoping the fans on the Farewell Tour can get behind the song and get Skin back on the radio!
The single will be released on December 13th, 2010 and will include an exclusive bonus track as part of the package. The release will be digital only though (no CD sorry!) and available from all good e-tailers such as iTunes, Amazon, HMV, Tesco and 7 Digital.
The single will feature an alternative version of ‘How Lucky you Are’ along with ‘Reunited’ from the ‘Up Close & Personal’ album. We’ll let you know once the single is available for pre-order through this site and our Facebook.
Sadly, Skin’s return didn’t last for long. Reunited after an absence of 11 years at the 2009 Download Festival by personal request of head honcho Andy Copping, and having returned again this summer, the quartet have been unable to reconcile the demands of running their own affairs with careers built since a dissolution in 1998.
Beginning with the welcome call of Good To Be Back, the self-financed Breaking The Silence celebrates their reconnection, also touching upon the mid-existence states of its participants via Stronger, The Book Of Your Life and Indestructible. This mat sound cloyingly sentimental, but having notched six Top 40 singles first time around – notably Look But Don’t Touch, with it’s cry of “Baby, Baby, Baby!” Skin still pen first-rate hook laden anthems.
The rabble rousing finale of Born To Rock ‘N’ Roll proffers hope that a vocal talent as under-rated as Neville Macdonald won’t be silenced for good by Skin’s demise.
The new Skin album ‘Breaking The Silence’ is now available to preorder from the Skin Web Shop! Skin’s first electric album in over a decade featuring eleven new tracks including a reworking of ‘Redemption’, previously released on the ‘Up Close And Personal’ album.
This album will have a limited pressing and is being released on July 31st, 2010 exclusively through this website. All preorders will be dispatched when stock arrives. You can preorder from the shop HERE.
