Remember that infectious '80s tune "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister? After their one-hit success, singer Corinne Drewery and instrumentalist Andy Connell have continued to make music. In fact, after "Breakout" the British group has put out eleven albums that mostly catered to their cult following in Europe and Japan.
This year marks the duo's 20th anniversary. This special occasion is celebrated with the forthcoming release of their new album "Where Our Love Grows." The record will be released by Shanachie Records on October 19th.
The duo first worked together as a studio band in Manchester, England before they recorded their first album "It's Better To Travel," which spawned the hits "Surrender," "Twilight World" and "Breakout."
Swing Out Sister last hit the US charts in 1992 with their cover of Barbara Acklin's "Am I The Same Girl?," the vocal version of Young-Holt Unlimited's "Soulful Strut."
"Where Our Love Grows" promises more of the contemporary jazz pop that the band has refined into a delicacy. Their laid-back tunes, exotic rhythms and warm vocal arrangements reveal the melodic shimmer of their unique sonic landscape.
