Speaking about the band’s line-up, Mick Hucknall said: “I want them to enjoy playing, for crowds to get up and move around, and everybody to put their heart into it. It’s all about capturing the groove.
“I’m looking forward to playing it [the new album] live because it’s real – I want to have a good time.”
He believes the new album – and playing for such a big crowd – will play to the core strengths of the band.
The album has 10 tracks, including new single Thinking of You, with all the songs being written by Michelle and long-time collaborator Andy Wright.
