'I Could Sing...' Single Explained
Last modified: 02 Nov 2001
Delirious? will once again be attempting to enter the UK mainstream charts by releasing a new version of their 1994 'Cutting Edge' classic 'I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever' as a single on December 10th. The song was re-recorded to feature on the band's forth comming 'Best Of' album, titled 'Deeper' (which was released in the States in October).
Martin Smith, who wrote the song, explains the decision behind the release: "We re-recorded it in the summer, then Sept 11th changed the world. We realised there could be a bigger purpose to the song than just making a creative statement as a band. So humbly, we offer it as a sign of hope that there is a healer who can set us free."
The new version has an added Gospel Choir backing (conducted by David & Carey Grant) and Delirious? guitarist Stu G is especially pleased with the outcome: "It was amazing to end up with a song that is so familiar but recorded in a way that sounds so fresh"
. Delirious? will be touring the UK in November and December to support the release of the single.
