Mike And The Mechanics Announce New Album 'Let Me Fly'

Friday, 10 February 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Mike and the Mechanics have revealed the details of their new album.

'Let Me Fly' is due to arrive on April 7 via BMG. Discussing the follow up to 2011's 'The Road', Mike Rutherford said: 

“'The Road' didn’t move anyone’s world as we made it just after we’d met. We’ve learned to play together now. For me, it’s about proving I can write a good song, but the older you get, the less you let yourself off with ’it’s not bad’, the less you pretend and the tougher you are on yourself. The hardest part of the whole process is staying relevant, but anyone who says success doesn’t matter is a liar: what you really want is people to like it. Then you feel it’s all been worth it. It’s as simple as that. Oh and my wife loves it, more than she’s loved an album of mine for a while! Trust me, that’s a really good sign.”

Check out the album's tracklist and artwork below.

  1.  Let Me Fly
  2. Are You Ready
  3. Wonder
  4. The Best Is Yet To Come
  5. Save The World
  6. High Life
  7. Don’t Know What Came Over Me
  8. The Letter
  9. Not Out Of Love
  10. Love Left Over
  11. I’ll Be There For You
  12. Save My Soul

Tomorrow the band will play the first date of their Word Of Mouth tour, which will stop in venues across the UK and Ireland throughout February and March, including a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars (Album Review)
Tue 18 Jun 2019
There has always been a restlessness to Bruce Springsteen’s music. As he ambled from bar to bar in Asbury Park, it manifested in thousand-words-a-minute flights of fancy. Soon, he was taken by the road and its promise of escape. Driven on by bombast and the communal spirit of his live shows, the real world sometimes felt like it was out of sight around the next bend.
