Ian Hunter to release new album 'Fingers Crossed' Out September 16th 2016 on Proper Records Listen to new David Bowie homage track 'Dandy' HERE UK tour in November

'Dandy' is out now and can be purchased from iTunes HERE

Ian Hunter’s latest studio album, 'Fingers Crossed' unveils ten new, self-penned songs including his much-anticipated homage to David Bowie ‘Dandy’. Recorded at HOBO Studios in New Jersey, and co-produced by Hunter and Andy York, the record features his magnificent Rant Band and is the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed 'When I’m President'. As leader of ‘70s British rock legends Mott the Hoople and as a hugely influential solo artist, Ian Hunter is widely revered as one of rock’n’roll’s most compelling performers and one of its most articulate songwriters. As author of such immortal anthems as, 'All The Way From Memphis', 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' and 'Cleveland Rocks' and the voice of such landmark albums as, 'All The Young Dudes', 'Mott', 'Ian Hunter' and 'You’re Never Alone With A Schizophrenic', he remains a hero to fellow musicians and fans around the world. The compositions on 'Fingers Crossed' see Hunter covering typically wide-ranging subject matter.  'Dandy', his fond tribute to David Bowie reflects on a relationship cemented in 1972 when Bowie produced Mott’s album All the Young Dudes and provided its hit title track. “I think ‘Dandy’ might be my favourite track on the album,” Ian admits “I like the line – ‘and then we took the last bus home’. David was an incredible artist with an insatiable curiosity for everything. ‘Ghosts’ was inspired by a November 2014 visit to Union Avenue in Memphis where Ian and the Rant Band were invited to jam in rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Studio. Title track ‘Fingers Crossed’ is a 1750’s sea-faring tale of impressment, when men were taken into the Navy by compulsion and forced recruitment. “’Fingers Crossed’ was not inspired by a book” Ian comments, “actually it wasn’t inspired by anything material. I’ve no idea where it came from as I simply woke up one day with the line – ‘I was pressed into service, through no fault of my own’ – and from there the song took its own course. It could only go one way. It’s great when you get a strong opening line!” ‘White House’ injects a fun element, based on real-life … and a real beaver … while ‘Bow Street Runners’ tells the 18th Century tale of the Fielding Brothers. Hunter explains: “In the 1700s half-a-million people lived in London and there were no cops, so crime was rampant. It was crazy. One of the Fielding brothers was known as Blind Beak – he couldn’t see but he could smell crime and recognized thousands of criminals by the sound of their voices - so the story goes. The brothers Henry and John Fielding formed the Bow Street Runners … Britain’s first Bobbies!” ‘Morpheus’ is framed around the Ancient Greek god who had the ability to mimic human form and shape people’s dreams and has proved “the instant favourite of many people who have heard the album,” Hunter reveals. “I’m delighted with ‘Fingers Crossed’,” he adds; a sentiment sure to be shared by fans far and wide! November tour dates: 04 LEAMINGTON The Assembly 05 GLASGOW Garage 07 GATESHEAD The Sage 08 CARDIFF Tramshed 09 MANCHESTER RNCM 11 LONDON 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire 12 BUCKLEY The Tivoli 13 HOLMFIRTH The Picturedome Order the album from Propermusic.com and receive a free non-album track 'Seein' Red': The album is also available at Amazon and iTunes www.ianhunter.com

    a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my
    diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

    or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    Hi there, all is going well here and ofcourse every one
    is sharing data, that’s truly fine, keep up writing.

  17. Posted 8th April 2019 at 06:06 | Permalink

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
    there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or hints? Cheers!

  18. Posted 8th April 2019 at 21:23 | Permalink

    You ought to take part in a contest for one
    of the most useful sites on the web. I am going to highly recommend this blog!

  20. Posted 10th April 2019 at 05:36 | Permalink

    I believe what you typed made a bunch of sense.
    However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good., but suppose you added something to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean Ian Hunter to release
    new album – FFRUKiT! is a little vanilla. You
    ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to
    grab people to click. You might try adding a video
    or a related picture or two to get readers excited about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.

  21. Posted 10th April 2019 at 10:43 | Permalink

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you ought to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not discuss these issues.
    To the next! Many thanks!!

    understands what they’re talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it
