Produced by the legendary T-Bone Burnet, The Corrs' new album will be released on November 10th on East West Records.
Twenty years on from the release of their all-conquering second album Talk On Corners, and two years after their acclaimed album White Light, The Corrs return with an album they describe as "ambitious, earthy and outspoken: an album guaranteed to earn them renewed respect as musicians, songwriters and trailblazers."
“The most freeing experience we’ve ever had in the studio” is how Caroline describes the making of Jupiter Calling at London’s RAK studios. T-Bone had the band play live with minimal overdubs accompanied by bassist Robbie Malone (David Gray) and long-time guitarist Anthony Drennan (Chris Rea, Genesis, Clannad) and insisted that the studio source 40 spools of rare two-inch tape and a 1966 Ludwig drum kit.
The results are staggering and will delight their fans while earning admiration from a whole new audience.
“I love The Corrs' deep, generous spirit,” says T-Bone. “I love their writing and their singing and their playing. I love the people of Ireland – their music, their literature, their art- and The Corrs are the most soulful exemplars of that mystical land.”
At the heart of Jupiter Calling, their seventh album, is ‘SOS’- Song of Syria- the most politically outspoken and evocative song The Corrs have ever recorded.
To celebrate the band are returning to The Royal Albert Hall 19thOctober for what promises to be a very special night.
Tickets for the show will be on general sale Friday 15th September from 9am.

It’s certainly plain to see how their teaming of sentimental, wide-eyed AOR and neo-trad power choruses is a hit with the audience, and they are indisputably talented, yet there is still something about the Corrs that strikes me as somewhat bloodless. Perhaps it’s me, for I haven’t seen an audience in the Point so animated and enthusiastic in ages.Read More

Now, with the release of Borrowed Heaven, they’re back in the music biz frontline – slightly older, considerably wiser, but still with the same hunger to make great and honest records.Read More
