NEW SINGLE TRUST ME OUT NOW
a1 has recently released brand new single 'TRUST ME' which takes a new musical route with its raw 60s inspired sound. This single is taken from a1’s forthcoming album 'REDISCOVERED' that is released in Norway on 2nd November 2012.
NEW ALBUM 'REDISCOVERED' NOVEMBER 2nd
'Rediscovered' is a musical journey that brings a1 to rediscover what got them into music in the first place; extremely catchy pop songs, with a back to basics approach. From the very sing-along-able 'Christopher Columbus' which helped inspire the album title, to powerful and stomping dance floor tunes like 'That Somebody Is Me' and 'Lovesick'. But whilst this album is about going back to their roots, it’s also about venturing into new territories, and a lot of people may be quite surprised by the 12 songs a1 have written for this album. For a1, this is THE album that will bridge the gap between fans who‘ve stayed true for all these years, to the people who are discovering them for the first time.
