Dutch artist Robby Valentine has signed to Japanese major record label King Records and releases a double album also available on vinyl, all accompanied by a headline show at the Arts Club in Liverpool in March.
Robby’s first self-titled album contained his first single Over and Over Again, a big hit in 1991. That year he received the prestigious Dutch Silver Harp award, which celebrates promising musical talent and was recently awarded to Tiësto and Ferry Corsten. Valentine writes, produces and plays all his own material.
Black Rain will be the new single from Robby’s latest album Bizarro World, which is already getting extensive UK radio play in the lead up to his Liverpool concert on 12 March.
To celebrate twenty-five years making music, Robby launches his latest album Bizarro World on 14th February and the Queen Album, with bonus tracks including his cover of Life on Mars by David Bowie. These are also available on vinyl.
Bizarro World is an eclectic mix of pop and rock, blending influences from Queen, Muse and Adam Lambert.
Valentine has enjoyed success in Japan and subsequently signed to their major record label King Records while he remains popular in his native Holland. The first pressing of Bizarro World sold out in Europe, prompting headline shows to support the extended release.
Prompted by his successful performance at the Rockingham festival in the UK last October, Robby Valentine will bring his The Best of Both Worlds show to the Arts Club in Liverpool on 12 March, which will be 25 years since his first big hit Over and Over Again.
Starting the show will be originals from Robby’s extensive back catalogue, followed by a set of timeless classics from his Tribute to Queen show, which featured at the UK Queen Convention where he has been the first artist to be asked back three times.
The latest album “Bizzaro World” was released in the U.K and worldwide on Valentine’s Day, 14th February 2016 with distribution from Universal Music Operations.
