Colin has released a new single for the holiday season: “By December”. Get it now on iTunes!
Colin James will release his 16th studio album, Hearts On Fire, on 03 February 2015 via Universal Music Canada. The album will be made available for pre-order 09 December 2014.
Hearts On Fire was co-produced by Colin James and long-time collaborator Colin Linden (ABC’s Nashville). The album was recorded at House of Blues in Nashville, TN and Magic Ten Studios in Vancouver, BC.
The lead single, “Just a Little Love” features a stellar line-up of musicians that includes; George Receli (drums and percussion), Willie Weeks (bass), Reese Wynan (keyboards), Colin Linden (guitar) and Ann & Regina McCrary (backup vocals).
“Making this record with my good friend Colin Linden with such a fantastic veteran rhythm section was an amazing experience,” Colin recounts. “The majority of the recording was done in Nashville during a stretch of warm spring weather so every time I hear the songs I feel like I’m right back in The South. I hope my fans enjoy listening to this record as much as we all enjoyed making it.”
In conjunction with the release of the album, Colin will also embark on his first cross-Canada tour since 2012. Many shows will go on sale this Friday November 21. Check the official tour page for a full list of dates.
