Coming from the lead singer/guitarist/songwriter of new-wave veterans Squeeze, Glenn Tilbrook’s voice hasn’t aged one bit – it sounds just as sweet as it did when I first heard “Slightly Drunk” back in 1979. This song, which is the “taster track” (if you will) for Mr. Tilbrook’s upcoming solo album, Happy Ending. If the single is an indication of how the album will be, it’s a must-get.
After all these years, Glenn Tilbrook has lost none of his skill for well-crafted, strongly-melodic songs that instantly burrow their way into your ears and mind. Once a master of pop, always a master of pop. Look for the vinyl on June 10th as part of a bundle with CD and download links.
Glenn Tilbrook will be on tour in the United States starting September 23rd, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.
