A quick scan of the many records Phil Thornalley has worked on, and you’ll quickly spot some of the biggest names in popular music, including Bryan Adams, Thompson Twins, The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, XTC, Duran Duran, and even Paul McCartney.  He has a new album out in September, but before that, new single, Fast Car, gives us a taste of what’s to come – which seems to be a whole lot of fun.

Drawing on the earlier sounds of ELO, Fast Car and the accompanying album is straight out of the seventies sounds of ELO and glam rock – something that Phil definitely wants to address:

 “When I listen to pop radio these days,, no one seems to be having any fun. In my teenage years, every other record you heard was ridiculous. I think that sense of fun is missing from today’s often turgid, doleful would-be soul singers moaning about their millionaire ennui.”

 The video is itself a work of art – and so much fun!

Fast Car was released on29 July – the album Now That I Have Your Attention is out on 2 September.
