Seal ‘Standards’ Tour

SEAL ANNOUNCES 2018 UK TOUR IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM “STANDARDS

 

British soul legend Seal has announced UK tour dates for 2018 in support of his tenth studio album “Standards”.  Including our very own Sage Gateshead on 13th February 2018 .  Backed by a big band, the multi-award winning star will be performing songs from the new album, alongside his classic hits ‘Killer’ and ‘Kiss from a Rose’.

In a career spanning three decades, racking up over 30 million records sales worldwide and a string of Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards along the way, Seal continues to shine as one of the world’s brightest music stars.

Standards” brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present.  It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. “Standards” hears Seal’s signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as ‘Luck Be A Lady’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘It Was A Very Good Year’), Ella Fitzgerald (‘I’m Beginning to See The Light’) and Nina Simone (‘I Put A Spell on You’).  Elsewhere, there are lush orchestral moments captured on ‘Smile’ (Charlie Chaplin) and the Cole Porter gem, ‘Love For Sale’.

The sound of Seal’s new album is also shaped by three renowned collaborators: Grammy-nominated British producer Nick Patrick (who has worked with luminaries including Tina Turner and Marvin Gaye and enjoyed huge chart success with his pioneering Elvis orchestral albums), multi Grammy-nominated arranger Chris Walden, and legendary engineer Don Murray.

Seal said: “It’s great being back in my home country, and touring with this album is going to be such an experience. We have a full big band – it’s going to be amazing.”
