Huey Lewis and The News Ready to Release First New Album In 18 Years
We do not know if there has been any improvement in Huey Lewis’ hearing but the singer is obviously healthy enough to record new music.
The new record is due in the spring with BMG. The band just signed a deal with the label and it could breathe new life into a band that got some bad news last year concerning their leaders hearing loss.
The singer hasn’t performed a concert in nearly a year due to suffering sudden-onset hearing loss
Lewis said in a statement, ‘We’re very excited about our new album, and honestly feel that it’s among our best work – we cannot wait to get it out to fans! We’re equally excited to be with BMG, whose reputation as a ‘music-first’ label precedes them admirably.”
It will be the band’s first album since “Plan B” from 2001.
Last year we reported Huey Lewis and the News had to cancel their 40-date tour because of his hearing problems called Meniere’s disease. He had said a the time that when he walked on stage it sounded like a jet engine was flying by. He hasn’t done a full show in over a year though he did perform “Hip To Be Square” at a gold event in October.
Huey Lewis and the News had 17 Top 40 hits between 1982 and 1991. Their biggest songs were
They had three #1 hits, “The Power Of Love” from Back to the Future in 1985, “Stuck with You” the following year and “Jacobs Ladder” from 1987. – by John Beaudin
