Epic orchestral pop on first album in nineteen years from pioneering Britpop group My Life Story

British epic pop band My Life Story have released their first album in nineteen years. With a string of top 40 hit singles and albums in the 1990s, pop pioneers My Life Story received huge critical acclaim with their unique brand of grand, orchestral pop, leading many artists of the Britpop era to feature them on their records. This new collection, addressing central human issues as well as global concerns, is co-written by charismatic frontman and award-winning composer for TV and Film Jake Shillingford and guitarist Nick Evans. It has a new and distinctly rockier sound. The album features a forty-piece orchestra from Budapest recorded over Skype, lyrics written on Facebook with the help of fans, the New Romantic Steve Norman performing on one track, the use of Freddie Mercury’s old microphone plus a stylophone for possibly only the second time in pop music history (after ‘Space Oddity’). The theme of the album in Shillingford’s words is “searching for truth in a world full of lies.” The new release, conceived as a natural progression from their last record, aims to show fans “enough of the MLS they know and love but in the real world of today.” Tickets for the ‘World Citizen’ tour starting November 2 available from: www.seetickets.com/tour/my-life-story
