While boyband Blue are gearing up for the release of their fifth studio album, Colours, the four piece have treated us to a video for first single, King Of The World, which samples the music of Ben E King’s classic, Stand By Me.
King Of The World sees Strictly Come Dancing star Simon Webbe take on lead vocals, whilst 15 years in the industry proves that Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Antony Costa can deliver wonderful harmonies.
Colours – which is said to be a Motown mix of originals and covers, including versions of If You Don’t Know Me By Now and Hang On In There Baby – is released via Sony Music on March 2nd, and Blue start their UK headline tour next month, including a date a London’s iconic Roundhouse.
