Tony Hadley hardly understands which country he remains in when Love Sunday magazine finally gets hold of him after a number of days playing phone tag, and it’s not unexpected; after coming out of the jungle in deepest, darkest Australia, he got an entire 3 days to reunite with his family (other half Alison and children Zara, nine, and Genevieve, 3 and a half, were there to greet him), prior to flying off briefly to Dubai, followed by Milan, then onto Rome, for work dedications.
Find Out About Hadley Tony
As front man for Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley led the well-known band through the 1980s with 15 Leading 10 singles (including the # 1 smash “True.”) The band took a twenty years hiatus before reforming in 2009, again hitting the U.K. Top 10 with their reunion album, As soon as More. Following an acclaimed documentary (directed by Julien Temple) and an effective tour, Hadley stepped out with The Christmas Album, his very first holiday offering, revealing the exact same daring spirit, while doing what he does best– making every tune his own.
Consisting of standards like “White Christmas,” “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” and “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” The Christmas Album moves easily into the ’50s with Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph,” the ’70s with “I Believe In Daddy Christmas” (Greg Lake of Emerson Lake & Palmer), The Pogues’ “Fairytale Of New York City” from the ’80s, and into the present century with Keane’s “Someplace Just We Know” along with originals. Formerly only offered as an import, this 2016 version of The Christmas Album includes 3 new tracks for its introduction to the world!
From “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” (a duet with Kim Wilde) to “Shake Up Christmas” (co-written by Butch Walker and Pat Monahan of Train), The Christmas Album delivers to the romantic, the new romantic and every generation in-between. A new vacation classic? We understand this much is real.
