‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ or stop performing 80’s pop sensation Rick Astley is back with his first album in a decade.
The single from the album is ‘Keep Singing’ a soulful track with a gospel feel, which Astley says, is representative of the rest of the album:
“Yeah, there is a bit of gospel going on there. Maybe real gospel would look at it and say, ‘That’s not gospel,’ but maybe it’s gospel inspired, let’s say. There’s something kind of a bit inspirational in quite a few of the lyrics, I think. Maybe that’s just because I’m 50 this year and I knew, through the process of making this record, I kind of knew that that was coming, and maybe it’s just a time to look back on your life and people who have been in your life.”
