On March 19, Paul Stanley’s Soul Station is releasing its debut album, Now And Then. I’ve been listening to the record over the past month, and it’s phenomenal. I had the opportunity to interview Paul Stanley about this incredible artistic accomplishment, which was an honor and a pleasure. As you’ll see below, we talked about how he approached this album, when he expects to tour, and what’s next for Soul Station, among other topics. I hope you enjoy the interview, and make sure to buy a copy of Now And Then!
Joe Cocker is one of the most enduring artists in the music industry, and one of my favorites. His last album, Hard Knocks, was fantastic. It was filled with well crafted pop/rock songs that fit Cocker’s gravely voice like a glove.
Cocker is following up Hard Knocks with Fire It Up. Similar to his last album, it’s initially being released internationally and it was produced by Matt Serletic. The lead single is the title track “Fire It Up,” and it sounds great. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album when it’s released in the U.S., more than likely, sometime next year.
Below you’ll find two videos: the official lyrics video for “Fire It Up” and the album’s electronic press kit (i.e., EPK).
