Share This:

British vocalist Paul Carrack, well known for his work with Mike + The Mechanics, Squeeze, and Ace, has released a new single, “You’re Not Alone,” via his own label Carrack-UK. Listen to it below. The song precedes a new studio album, One on One, coming this summer, the eighteenth of Carrack’s career, and his first since 2018’s These Days.

Carrack has spent time working in his recording studio since the first lockdown began in March 2020, where he wrote, recorded and produced every song on One on One. Carrack plays all of the instruments, making his latest work the definition of a solo album.

Dubbed by the BBC as “The Man With the Golden Voice,” Carrack’s breakthrough moment came when he wrote and sang “How Long,” in 1974 from his days with Ace. Paul also enjoyed great success as the voice behind numerous hits for other bands, such as “Tempted” during his tenure with Squeeze and “The Living Years” with Mike + the Mechanics.

Since the turn of the century, Carrack, who turns 70 on April 22, has concentrated on his solo career, with his frequent, extensive tours. He also has been a constant member of Eric Clapton’s live band. Carrack has announced a 2022 tour; tickets are available here.

Of the new song, Carrack says, “I’d say the song is self-explanatory, but the sentiment is one of unquestioning commitment and support. I very much hope I get the chance to perform this song live with my band when we get the green light to start touring again, which we all hope will be at some point this year.”
