Artist Detail - BBC Entertainment
The Black Sorrows
“With its intoxicating mix of joyous, uplifting music and heartbreaking songs about love gone wrong, Roarin Town recalls the Sorrows’ best work. But it’s no nostalgia trip. The album is a bold step forward for an artist who’s never been afraid of change. With Roarin Town, this masterful musical chameleon is taking us on another unforgettable trip.
Joe wrote the songs with long-time collaborator and one-time Black Sorrows member Nick Smith (with whom he’s written most of the Sorrows’ classics, including Chained To The Wheel, Harley & Rose, Hold On To Me, Mystified, Daughters Of Glory and The Crack-Up).
Roarin Town - the Black Sorrows’ 10th album, excluding compilations and live releases - is an album of great songs; A-grade songs, as Joe calls ‘em. Eight years after the last Sorrows’ album and 22 years after their debut, Joe Camilleri has got his mojo back. Yep, The Black Sorrows are back.
Welcome to their Roarin Town.
