Matt Goss reinvents himself with debut solo album Life You Imagine
Story by Jack Foley
DECCA Records UK is thrilled to announce the UK release of Virgin Recording Artist Matt Goss. His highly-anticipated album Life You Imagine will be released in the UK on October 7, 2013.
Having taken Las Vegas by storm, paying tribute to the spirit of vintage Rat Pack Vegas with his critically acclaimed headline show at Caesar’s Palace, described as the “Hottest Show in Vegas” by the LA Times; Goss has returned to the studio with the definitive statement of his career.
Working with Virgin Topper and legendary music producer Ron Fair (who has produced hit records for Lady Gaga, U2, the Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige and Fergie) Goss’ songs and performances have been captured with a 40-piece Hollywood orchestra.
Life You Imagine marks Matt’s reinvention as a musician and most importantly, as a songwriter. Fans will, however, be delighted to learn that the Peckham-born performer pays homage to his past triumphs, with a big-band version of his hit-single When Will I Be Famous?
The South London singer, who was recently named as one of “LA’s Most Eligible Bachelors” returned to the UK for a special performance, complete with full band and horn section, at Café de Paris on June 26. The show sold out in an astonishing 2 minutes.
Goss said: “After nearly three years of making the album with Ron, and spending so much of my time singing & performing abroad — it’s truly an amazing feeling to be coming back home with such pride to share the music with everyone. My wish is that it becomes the tapestry of people’s lives.”
Achieving multiple platinum sales as Bros frontman in the late 1980’s and early 90’s, Matt Goss is proud to have been one of the biggest acts in British music, selling out the world’s largest stadiums.
As Ron Fair says: “Matt Goss is true British-Pop Royalty. Goss’ Life You Imagine album is a 100% pure heart and soul, and this homecoming is a celebration of his life’s journey as a songwriter, musician, and gentleman.”
