British singer, songwriter and musician Roachford releases ‘Gonna Be The One’ from his forthcoming album Twice In A Lifetime.
Premiered on Ken Bruce’s BBC Radio 2 show, the single release coincides with the announcement that Roachford’s UK tour will now take place in May and June 2021, with an additional show added in Edinburgh.
Andrew Roachford MBE will also be performing at Isle Of Wight Festival 2021 as well as joining Lionel Richie for concerts at Wrexham Racecourse and Cardiff Castle next summer. Andrew is also delighted to have become a patron of Music Venue Trust, the charity that supports hundreds of grassroots music venues in the UK.
Listen to ‘Gonna Be The One’ by Roachford on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
Andrew explains “I can’t wait to get back out to play live again. It means everything to me. It’s also why I’m thrilled to become a patron on the Music Venue Trust.
“I have always loved playing at the smaller venues around the UK and I often prefer seeing bands and artist play at the more intimate venues. This is often where most artists start so without these venues music in the UK will not continue to thrive”
Twice in a Lifetime was originally due for release in April, but will now be available on September 11, 2020. The album had been receiving critical acclaim, and the singles ‘High on Love’ and ‘Love Remedy’ were A-listed by BBC Radio 2.
We may not be seeing each other live for a little while longer but I hope you enjoy my next single “Gonna Be The One” premiered on @BBCRadio2 on The Ken Bruce Show. I can’t wait to share the full album with you soon. Stay safe out there! Listen here: https://t.co/goEA67mgA4 pic.twitter.com/qvT7dmp4Lq

Since ‘Cuddly Toy’ (a mainstay of radio airplay for over three decades now) reached #4 in the charts back in 1988, Roachford has carved out a career for himself as one of the most compelling and consistent rock and soul artists the UK has produced.
He has released 10 studio albums and several greatest hits collections, been sought-after as a songwriter by the likes of Michael Jackson, Joss Stone and Chaka Khan.
