PRESS RELEASE: WRITER’S BLOCK GONE, ALBUM READY! GLENN SHORROCK’S NEW SOLO ALBUM, RISE AGAIN, IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW

RELEASED FRIDAY, 9 SEPTEMBER 2016
TOURING AUGUST THROUGH DECEMBER

 

Currently touring New South Wales through until December, with shows in Canberra and Melbourne in September, acclaimed singer/songwriter Glenn Shorrock also returns with his first album in many years, “Rise Again”, a collection of songs composed by himself and a few friends, old and new. Having sold in excess of 25 million albums as founder and lead singer of the Little River Band, this new solo album offers a mix of folk-rock and easy listening tracks, and is now available for pre-order and due for release on Friday, 9 September, 2016.

 

The first track from the album has been released as free download to fans who sign up to Glenn’s newsletter and is also the pre-order instant-grat. ‘Hear My Voice’ is a final reaction to the events of previous years and a teaser to what follows, including the title track, ‘Rise Again’, going to radio on Monday, 5 September. The forthcoming new single was written by Jason Vorherr and is a positive song about taking each moment as a gift, and moving on and rising through and above any obstacles life may throw your way. 

 

Other contributors to the album include Terry Britten and Graham Lyle for ‘The Wood and the Wire’ and ‘Make A Difference’, Mitch Cairns for ‘Trouble’, and David Froggatt for ‘Candlelight Moon’ and ‘Blissful Oblivion’.  Having long admired Dave Dobbyn, Glenn’s also included his own 2008 recording of ‘Slice of Heaven’, and put aside his writers block, penning three of the compositions, ‘Hear My Voice’, ‘Emperors Clothes’, ‘Stick Up Your Finger’.
