About this deal

Hardly any women used to work in live music crews, but we now have a female lighting director, a female guitar tech, female monitors, which is brilliant. It’s mind-boggling to think there used to be a time when girls were told: “You can’t do those jobs – go to wardrobe, love.” The lead single "Dippin My Feet" was released on 20 June 2023. Astley said of the song: "It's not Americana, but the tagline at the start of the chorus is: 'Dipping my feet in the Mississippi River...' It's definitely not country, but I've never twanged a guitar as much as I have in the past couple of months." [6] "Dippin My Feet" peaked at number 95 on the UK Singles Sales Chart. [7] The second song in your Glastonbury solo set, 2016 ’s Keep Singing , talked about your tough childhood [Astley’s parents divorced when he was five ; he then lived with his father but estranged himself from him as an adult ]. How do you handle those memories? What’s really amazing, after a couple solid decades of Morrissey popping off the worst possible takes about immigration and Brexit and more, is hearing those classic songs being sung by someone likable. Astley is more diplomatic: “It's a well turned phrase, but you have to separate the art from the artist. A lot of the great painters were not the nicest people in the world. Sometimes you just have to say what they produced was amazing, but I just don't want to know anything about their politics or their feelings about humanity because that's something else.” Still, going forward, I will gladly take my Smiths without the Morrissey, thank you.

Sometimes I’ll write a certain line in a song that may have a slight political undertone and sometimes I just want to write one that’s like, ‘You know what? We’ve just got to fall in love with each other and the answer to that is letting go.’ A friend of mine was asking me about lyrics the other day and I was saying, ‘To be honest, half the time I don’t know what they’re about. It’s just shit that comes out while you’re noodling and playing, and sometimes it just feels right and becomes part of the song.’ But the essence of this is it’s about letting go. It’s quite up and quite light, and it’s not a serious song in any way. There’s a tiny bit of Fleetwood Mac in there, just because I heard tons of Fleetwood Mac when we were in America last summer.” Do we all dream enough? Do we search for that bar that’s a bit further up? Did you reach high enough? Again, it’s reflective of my own life a little bit. As my manager and also as my wife, my wife is more confident about my stuff than me and probably pushes it more than I do. We’ll get an offer to do something and I’ll go, ‘I don’t know about that,’ and she’ll say, ‘I know you can and it’s going to work out, it’ll be great.’ But it doesn’t have to be about my career, it can be about anything in life. It’s just that thing: ‘Did we actually really go for it?’” Never Gonna Give You Up" (Australian Music Report) peak: "Australian ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart – Week Ending 13th December 1987". ARIA . Retrieved 13 October 2020– via Imgur.com. [ bettersourceneeded] My wife does drive me absolutely crazy and vice versa, but she drives me crazy in every sense of the word. There’s a line in the song that says something like, ‘Sometimes I question why we’re here’, and it says, ‘Just holding your hand takes away my fears.’ We have that [kind of] relationship. Like Glastonbury, which I never thought was ever going to happen, I thought that was a dream long gone, but we did that this summer [in 2023]—I was holding hands with my wife as I walked up to the stage.”

Being the youngest, I used to watch things that I should not have been watching. I remember watching the news and being absolutely freaking terrified. I was born in ’66, so it was the early ’70s and stuff, the IRA was a massive thing. There were always bombings, you grew up watching things and thinking, ‘Wow, man, it’s terrifying.’ This is a little bit about seeing things through the eyes of a kid and being terrified. Also, I wanted to rescue it a little bit and have it be a chorus that people could sing along with.”

The internet can be very brutal for younger artists, but it can also be an amazing tool, where you can post something intimate, from the horse’s mouth, without gatekeepers. Then again, I heard Warners are releasing an AI pop singer, so for some kinds of music it’s probably already over. But at the end of the day we need to be around human beings. I don’t think we’ll ever lose that. Top 100 ( Australian Music Report) peaks to 12 June 1988: Kent, David (1993). Australian Chart Book 1970–1992 (Illustrateded.).

For "Can You Feel the Love Tonight": "Elton John – Can You Feel The Love Tonight – dutchcharts.nl". Can You Feel the Love Tonight" (ARIA) peak: "australian-charts.com – Elton John – Can You Feel The Love Tonight". Your wife, Lene Bausager , is Danish, and you’ve been together since 198 9. What’s the secret of a long relationship? Matt Collar of AllMusic wrote that the album "feels like a love letter to the earthy, blues-influenced work of artists like Bill Withers and Otis Redding" and found that "all of the rootsy soulfulness Astley embraces on Are We There Yet? is far removed from the studio sophistication of his early hits. That said, it feels genuine and hard-won by age and experience." [4] Retropop called it "some of his finest work since the 1980s" and felt that the "direction [...] perfectly compliments Astley's distinctive vocals, be it on mid tempo guitar-led numbers like 'Letting Go' and 'Golden Hour', or more R&B-leaning tunes in the vein of 'Never Gonna Stop' and 'Waterfall'". [12] We went to Nashville and there was music on every corner—Nashville just seems to live and breathe it a little more. ‘Golden Hour’ isn’t country exactly, but it’s definitely leaning on that and on that songwriting thing of trying to be as simple as possible. Some of the lyrics refer to my wife and I. We’ve known each other since 1987 and she manages me, so we work together. We travelled on buses around America for three months, and we realised that we are in a golden hour in the sense of age as well. You can be in a golden hour when you’re 20, but we also feel we’re getting on a bit and we have to enjoy this, because I don’t know how long anybody’s going to let me in a venue and sing anymore. We’re in a golden hour together as well because we’re still together after all these years. It’s pretty special.”
