ANNOUNCE OFFICIAL REUNION
14 DATE ‘SHAKESPEARS SISTER RIDE AGAIN’ UK TOUR CONFIRMED FOR OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2019 – FEATURES NIGHT AT THE LONDON PALLADIUM
BRAND NEW SINGLE ‘ALL THE QUEEN’S HORSES’ OUT 15 MAY
SINGLES COLLECTION ‘SINGLES PARTY’, FEATURING NEW MUSIC OUT 19 JULY
Shakespears Sister will release a Singles Collection, Singles Party on 19th July. The album features two new tracks ‘All The Queen’s Horses’ and ‘C U Next Tuesday’, as well as classic hits from the duo’s back catalogue. They embark on the Shakespears Sister Ride Again tour this October and November playing an extensive run of UK shows, including a night at The London Palladium.
Shakespears Sister’s debut album, 1989’s Sacred Heart was a top ten record and spawned the band’s first hit single, ‘You’re History’, which also went top ten. Even greater success followed with a second album, Hormonally Yours, in 1992; amongst its hit singles ‘I Don’t Care’, ‘Hello (Turn Your Radio On)’ and ‘Stay’, which remained at number one for eight weeks. The triumphs and accolades piled up: over a million albums sold, a Brit award for best video for ‘Stay’ and an Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Collection of Songs for the band’s second album, 1992’s Hormonally Yours. The pair went onto headline the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury in 1992 and supported Prince at Celtic Park at Prince’s personal request.
Speaking about the reunion, Siobhan and Marcy said:
Siobhan: “Neither of us wanted to go into it if there was anything apart from friendship and unity. We did not want a repeat of 1992. Life’s too short. So I think we just explored it slowly. I realised what a perfect writing partner she is for me…there’s some sort of weird fusion of energies that feels fated. It’s like this third entity exists that is neither me nor her, it’s the two of us”
Shakespears Sister, made up of Siobhan Fahey and Marcella Detroit, have sold over 1 million albums in the UK with Sacred Heart and Hormonally Yours. In 1992 their single Stay was Number One in the UK for eight weeks and Top 5 in the US. Their other Top 10 hits include You’re History and I Don’t Care.
