Scottish Pop heroes Deacon Blue have been confirmed to perform on The One Show this Friday 26th August. The band will perform their latest single “The Believers” to end the show, which airs on BBC1 from 19:00.
Deacon Blue further their huge creative and commercial renaissance with the release of their brand new studio album, ‘Believers’ on September 30 on earMusic.
‘Believers’ is the third part of a trilogy begun with ‘The Hipsters’ in 2012 and continued with ‘A New House’ in 2014. As such it continues a songwriting trajectory that is both rich, idiosyncratic and sharply honed – and inevitably coloured by a sense of urgency to make sense of recent events, both personal and global.
First single ‘The Believers’ is a song reflecting, in part, on the scenes of despair among refugees attempting to cross the Mediterranean and elsewhere – but nevertheless cast as an anthem of hope.
