In November 2016, Frontiers Music Srl released the critically acclaimed 12th original GLENN HUGHES album Resonate.

A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn concentrated again on his solo career. Sold out crowds were the order of the day, while touring non-stop throughout 2015, with shows in South America, Europe, UK, Japan and Singapore.

In 2015 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced that Deep Purple including MKIII, were to be inducted after several previous nominations over the years – a culmination of a 40+ years career which saw Glenn leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands, including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.

2016 is proved to be Glenn’s busiest year yet. With summer festivals and solo shows in the USA, UK and Europe. With Resonate, Glenn released his first solo album in over eight years. Resonate is truly a triumphant return to form for The Voice of Rock.

From album opener, Heavy, to the very last chords of the closer, Long Time Gone, it promises to be a contender for ‘Album of the Year’. It features his live solo band members, Soren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers.

It might well be the most heavy sounding of his solo albums, but as is his trademark, musical diversity shines through and as Glenn commented upon completion of the new recording, “this album is the first kind of a complete Glenn Hughes album“.

No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card and the new album, Resonate will shine as a true Glenn Hughes landmark release.

Resonate is available in two configurations: regular cd and deluxe edition including one bonus track and DVD. Vinyl release is available via Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music.

The Deluxe Edition includes the bonus track Nothing’s The Same, plus a bonus DVD disc featuring the Making of the album documentary – Heavy (song video), and Long Time Gone(song video).

Glenn Hughes: All Vocals, Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar

Soren Andersen: Guitars
Pontus Enborg: Drums & Percussion
Lachy Doley: Keyboards
Chad Smith: Drums on Heavy & Long Time Gone

Produced by Glenn Hughes & Soren Andersen

On his January and February 2017 UK tour, Hughes will perform a collection of music from his extensive career, including selections from Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall and Black Country Communion as well as solo material from the new album Resonate.
