New Howard Jones album on iTunes

Howardjonesrevolutionoftheheart_1
It’s been 20 years since the 80s synth-pop icon Howard Jones exploded on to the music scene.What’s he been up to? Well, back in 1997 he started his own label, dtox.  He is releasing new material on this label as well as material from other bands such as dba.
I think it’s quite inspirational to see an 80’s icon remaining vital as an artist and staying current by collaborating with new artists.

Howard recently released a brand new album called Revolution of the Heart which is now available on iTunes. Click this button to preview some tracks  Revolution of the Heart. 

This album is worth a listen for a many reasons. One of course is if you are a Howard Jones fan, you’ll still enjoy his electronic synth-pop with a positive message. Second, for you producers out there, the album was co-written/produced by dba’s Robbie Bronniman resulting in some very cool mixes.

I
actually saw Howard Jones perform his electronic set with a band twice in the
last two years. He has quite an interesting laptop-based live rig that I’ll
comment on in a future article.
