Wet Wet Wet have announced brand new album ‘The Journey’, due out on 25 June 2021.
The release will be their first with new lead singer Kevin Simm, who was previously a member of BRIT Award-winning band Liberty X as well as the 2016 winner of The Voice UK.
Kevin was first introduced to fans on tour in 2018 and will once again join the band on the road next year in support of the new album.
Neil Mitchell commented, “Releasing a new Wets studio album in 2021 is all the more unusual because of these weird times that we’re living in. Having Kevin as our singer now gives the band and the new album a different dynamic and an excitement that has reinvigorated Wet Wet Wet for an exciting journey ahead…”
The tour will kick-off in the band’s beloved homeland of Scotland before heading to 20 cities across the UK for what will be their largest tour since their sold-out run of shows in 2019.
