Texas Unveil Video For ‘Midnight’, The Third Single To Be Taken From The Band’s Top 10 Album ‘Jump On Board’

Texas are back with ‘Jump On Board’, a glorious new album from one of Britain’s best loved bands. Now signed to BMG, Texas have made an absolute pop classic boasting the back to the dance floor first single ‘Let’s Work It Out’ and the stone cold smash hit ‘Tell That Girl’.

Written and produced by Texas stalwarts Johnny McElhone and Sharleen Spiteri, in London and Glasgow, and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Florence & The Machine, Noel Gallagher),‘Jump On Board’ is guaranteed to turn any dark skies blue. It’s the perfect antidote to these worrying times and will put a big smile back on your face.

“When music’s in your DNA, what’s gone in will come back out,” Sharleen Spiteri says. “’Jump On Board’ has references of course, but it’s an up-front, modern-sounding record.”

‘Jump on Board’ is the first new Texas studio album since ‘The Conversation’ in 2013. Having sold over 35 million records with 3 number one albums, 7 top ten albums and 13 top ten singles, ‘Jump On Board’ looks set to reignite their flame.

“We feel refreshed,” Sharleen admits. “We definitely had a great time making this record. It’s time to jig it all up. It’s like a new beginning. This is the next part of our story, and we’re loving it.”

With songs as strong as the ten tracks on ‘Jump On Board’, who are we to argue.

Having already sold out two nights at Kelvingrove Park Glasgow in July (with a third recently put on sale due to phenomenal demand), Texas kick off their UK tour 11th September in Cardiff.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
