Having recently collected his MBE for Services To Music at Buckingham Palace, Roachford releases new single ‘High On Love’.
With echoes of Womack and Womack in both its celebration of the purity of love and the acknowledgement that love can often come from a dark place, ‘High On Love’ follows the Radio 2 A Listed single ‘Love Remedy’.
“Recording ‘High On Love’ was the most fun I’ve had in the studio in a long time. The song is uplifting but still has a depth to it. When you dig deep into yourself, the songs that come out tend to be brutally honest,” says Roachford. “I sometimes think that it’s easier for me to be more honest and open in song than it ever would be in normal conversation.”

Throbbing with musicality and soul, forthcoming record Twice in a Lifetime is the sound of someone at the top of their game, of one who knows his craft inside out, and is the album Andrew Roachford been gearing up to make for decades.
Produced by Jimmy Hogarth, who has previously worked with Paolo Nutini, Duffy and Amy Winehouse, and featuring several members of Winehouse’s band as well as a duet with Beverley Knight, it’s full of grit and the most tremendous sonic energy.
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.
