First Album Release Imminent
With just two weeks until the release of PopLife's first ever album release, Same Difference's 'The Rest Is History', we thought we would check in to let everyone know a bit more about the album. It's safe to say that it's been a labour of love for both Same Difference and for PopLife, and we're incredibly proud of the end result. We hope you will all love it as much as we do!
It all started back in late 2009 when Same Difference's new management team introduced the band to Topham & Twigg and the very lovely Yamit Mamo. They composed a track called 'Souled Out' which became the first track recorded for this album. It seems fitting that it's the opening track, whilst the closing track on the album, 'Broken Memories' just happens to be the final track to be finished. It ties it all up nicely!
Throughout 2010 we worked hard on creating the best album we could possibly make, and the first fruits of our labour was the single 'Shine On Forever (Photo Frame)' that received a great reaction at Same Difference's live dates throughout the summer and even broke new ground for the band by reaching Top 10 in the club charts. As the dust settled after the single release, we got back in to the studio to finish the album, and we think it's sounding pretty good!
We have a lot of people asking us for full production and writing credits for the album, and we're delighted to reveal the full list of very talented people below!
The album is released worldwide on 7th February, and is available to pre-order from all the usual outlets. Same Difference will be popping up lots in the media to promote the album release, so keep your eyes peeled.
2011 is going to be a big year for PopLife, with lots of exciting new releases in the pipeline, so keep checking back for more information. Thanks to everyone who supported us throughout 2010 - we really appreciate it!
