2020 is a big one for Deacon Blue. They have announced a new album CITY OF LOVE which sees the multi-million selling band deliver eleven brilliant new tracks tethered by a singular belief – that even in the corners of a town or a life where no light falls, hope can prevail. Supported by a huge tour, the band will be coming to your city of love in October, November and December 2020.

Deacon Blue - City of Love

Long praised for their live performances CITIES OF LOVE will see the band visit more cities in the UK and Ireland than ever before, including 7 arena shows and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

CITY OF LOVE (released March 6th and available to pre-order now from is the fourth release of a prolific seven-year period for Deacon Blue. Their last three albums returned the band to the Top 20 of the UK album charts, the most recent posting at No 12, giving them their highest charting album in 23 years. This has fueled a creative resurgence which returned the band not only to mainstream radio playlists, but also back into the sort of venues befitting the stature of a chart-topping legacy boasting 7 million album sales, two number one albums and 14 hit singles.

Ricky Ross: “We’re so looking forward to you hearing City of Love and getting out on the road, playing new songs and old songs too. Every time we tour now it feels like a celebration because our fans are still there and it’s a delight for us. We’re planning to make this the best one yet.”

CITY OF LOVE, the new album by Deacon Blue is released by earMUSIC on 6th March 2020 as CD Digipak, LP and Digital and is available to pre-order now giving fans access to an exclusive 48hr tour pre-sale from 13th November.
