Right now, Keating is all about this album. The album of his life. A record on which he’s dug deep, pushed hard and been unafraid of wearing his heart (and his tunes) on his sleeve. This album is the first fruits of not only a rejuvenating new relationship with his new label Decca, but also a genuinely content place in life and love. These are instantly affecting songs of celebration and emotion, of love and loss and more importantly … unblinking honesty.
Keating says, “This music is the sound, and this is who I am. And this feels absolutely right”. “To go out with all this new material, and playing guitar, will be so exciting. These songs were written for live performance”.
22 Years of making music have resulted in an impressive tally of achievements, including 40 million album sales with Boyzone, 22 million copies sold of nine solo albums, 14 solo Number One singles, an Ivor Novello Award for Picture Of You (1997). But they are not something Keating is dwelling on, right now, Keating is all about pushing on with a bold new chapter.
