Set to be released on March 29, the album was recorded at the renowned Fame Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, during the summer of 2022.

The album features twelve of Texas’ greatest hits, and two covers (Would I Lie To You by Charles and Eddie and Save The Last Dance by The Drifters).

Sharleen Spiteri said: “To have the option to go to Muscle Shoals to record was like being a little kid in a sweet shop.

"Working with Spooner was inspiring, fun and he’s just a wonderful human being. The fact that Northern Soul music has been such a massive influence for Texas made the fit with Spooner just right. Him writing ‘Keep On Talking’ was essential to us recording it for this album.

"To reimagine the classics and break them down so you hear the clarity in the lyrics - it may give you a different take and a different feeling on these songs. It’s just vocal and a piano with some beautiful backing - all recorded live.

"I think you’re going to get something quite different from what you will have heard on the original versions.”
