Right Said Fred are back and they’re ready to kick-start the summer with the release of their vibrant new EP ‘Good Times Everybody’, out 19th June 2020. Having had all their shows cancelled or postponed this year, Fred and Richard Fairbrass felt their was no better time to introduce their latest blend of tongue-in-cheek observational pop to the world and put a smile back on people’s faces.
Once again showcasing the brothers’ undeniable ability to pen fun-filled pop anthems, ‘Good Times Everybody’ is all about making every moment count. Latest single and title track ‘Good Times Everybody’ is an infectiously uplifting pop banger from the offset, filled with relatable lyrics and a singalong chorus that will have you humming along for days. The EP’s themes range from the upbeat nature of ‘Good Times Everybody’, to the poignant storytelling charm of ‘Tide’, a song about counting your blessings and grabbing every opportunity.
‘Good Times Everybody’ is the brothers’ first release since their acclaimed album ‘Exactly!’, which came out in 2017. Their single, ‘Sweet Treats’ premiered on Ken Bruce’s BBC Radio 2 show and the guys headed in to see Chris Evans at Radio 2 as well, performing a special acoustic version of the single and ‘I’m Too Sexy’.
