Music Promotions recently caught up Blue singer Lee Ryan to talk about recording with RubyLux on Lovers Of NewYork out now, Blues new album, The Big Reunion Tour and a TV show next year.
With everything happening with Blue right now stay tuned to officialblue.com and their twitter @officialblue for all the updates
How did you get involved with Rubylux on this single?
It all happened very quickly. The band contacted my management, I listened to the track and loved it. We hung out in the studio to see whether we all got along and here we are now. The band are great and it was a great compliment to have even been asked.
Any plans to work with Rubylux again?
Never say never. At the moment Blue are back in the studio recording, it’s looking to be an exciting rest of the year for the band.
Have you any more artists collaborations in the pipeline?
Not at the moment, for us it’s about Blue being back in the studio as a four piece, doing what we love best. Potentially this is something we’ll look to do further down the line but for now we are sticking to Simon, Duncan, Antony and Lee Ryan vocals.
Any artists that you would like to work with?
I would love to work with Adele. She is amazing. Her album is still one of the most played on my iPod. I reckon that she would be a lot to hang out with too, she seems as though she’d have great banter.
As a songwriter who inspires you musically?
People may be shocked to hear that i’d have to say Ed Sheeran. He is a true talent and I think he has really put his stamp on the music industry.
Any plans to releases any solo music or is your main focus the next Blue CD?
No solo music plans happening at the moment, the main focus is on the Blue album. We are so excited for what is to come.
Who in the charts are you currently listening to?
I am a massive fan of James Bay. His vocals are in a league of their own.
Have you got any plans to tour again after the big reunion tour in October?
Absolutely. That’s all I will say.
What is next for you?
We have the new album, our new show which will be airing next year and we are currently supporting Simon on Strictly Come Dancing.
