Shayne Ward’s ‘Closer’ Album: See The Tracklist
If TLC and Shayne Ward have proved anything in recent weeks, it’s that sidestepping the major labels and utilizing online funding platforms might just be the fastest and easiest way to go when making a pop album that stays true to the artist’s own vision.
Iconic R&B girl group TLC only just announced that they’d be using Kickstarter to fund their upcoming final LP, and within two days their monetary goal had been met thanks to money handed over by their fans…including Katy Perry! (Read our interview with the ladies here.)
Likewise, Ward, a golden-voiced UK X Factor winner, partnered up with legendary pop producer Mike Stock (Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Bananarama and Donna Summer, to name but a few he’s whipped up hits for) and opted to go the PledgeMusic route for his own upcoming LP, Closer (due out on April 13).
After first announcing the album in September, Shayne’s full goal had been met within two months — but the Manchester singer’s fans keep throwing money his way, and the goal now stands at a whopping 180%. (Might we suggest putting the extra toward a follow-up EP, or newer tracks on a deluxe Closer re-release somewhere down the line?)
The full tracklist for Ward’s Closer LP has now been revealed, and it is as follows:
1. Moving Target
2. My Heart Would Take You Back
3. I Never Said
4. The Way You Were
5. Too Much To Lose
6. Crying, Lying Eyes
7. I’m So Proud Of You
8. Make It Simple
10. I Let You Get Away
