“We never expected to be here, but here we are, with Riding on the Tide of Love,” says the band’s Ricky Ross. “When we released City of Love back in March, we celebrated it getting to No. 1 in Scotland and No. 4 in the UK, we were looking forward to a summer of festivals followed by a big tour at the end of the year. As we all know, that didn’t happen and once the dust had settled, we realized we weren’t going to be going out on the road any time soon. Riding on the Tide of Love is a continuation of City of Love, a companion piece that we recorded piece-by-piece, going into the studio one-by-one to record our individual parts. In its own way, it brought us all together. We hope it will bring you together, too. Three of the tracks that feature on this record, ‘Look Up,’ ‘Send a Note Out,’ and ‘She Loved the Snow,’ were recorded during the City of Love sessions, and the other tracks were started around the same time but have been finished during lock down for this release.”
City of Love album was the fourth full album released during a prolific eight-year period for Deacon Blue and gave the band their highest charting album in 23 years. Riding on the Tide of Love springs from that same fertile time in the band’s career and serves to extend that rich vein of creative form. This album is a continuation of City of Love, a companion piece.
A limited colored vinyl edition + signed print will be available exclusively on the Deacon Blue Shop here.
