Simply Red - Time

I first met Mick Hucknall in October 1994. I was given the job of programming drums on the Life album but very quickly we established a musical rapport which has seen me taking part in every album since then as producer. This amounts to 9 studio albums and 2 solo albums! It really has been a life’s work, but given our longevity, I have to say that Time is probably my favourite.

The songs were spawned out of Mick’s lockdown experience and when it was safe to meet up I began going to his home studio to work one song at a time on what has become the finished record.

With Radio 2 album of the week, both singles making record of the week and possibly the best press reviews we’ve ever had I am hugely proud of this album!
