Simple Minds Announces New Album “Direction of the Heart”, Shares New Song “Vision Thing”
- Scottish rock band Simple Minds, consisting of Jim Kerr (vocals) and Charlie Burchill (guitars, keyboards), Gordy Goudie (acoustic guitar), Ged Grimes (bass), Cherisse Osei (drums), Berenice Scott (keyboards), and Sarah Brown (vocals), announced their 19th studio album “Direction of the Heart” would be released on October 21, 2022 via BMG.
It is their first album in four years since the 2018 album “Walk Between Worlds”.
The album comprises 9-track and was recorded at Chameleon Studios in Hamburg, with production assistance from Andy Wright.
Jim Kerr said of the album, “How to make a feel-good 'Electro-rock' record, during the very worst of times? Direction Of The Heart is the result of that challenge. Who would have thought we'd have so much fun creating it?”
From the album, the band released the first single “Vision Thing” on June 14, 2022.
The song is a tribute to Jim Kerr's father, his “best pal,” who died in 2019.
It was written by Charlie Burchill and James Kerr. Produced by Andy Wright, Gavin Goldberg and Simple Minds.
