Scottish band “Texas,” with the distinct vocals of “Sharleen Spiteri” burst onto the music scene in 1989 with their debut single I Don’t Want A Lover from their debut album Southside. It was a top ten hit in the UK and many other European countries. The band’s next two albums were less successful but their fortunes changed in 1997 with the release of their White on Blonde album which entered at the top of the UK albums chart and became their biggest seller.
In 2021 their single, Mr Haze, from their tenth album, Hi, made it to number one on the RadiJohan Top 10. Their next album will be a compilation, The Very Best Of 1989 – 2023. It will feature selections from the group’s entire career which has so far delivered 10 hit albums and seen the group pick up the “Ivor Novello Award” for Outstanding Song Collection.
The single, After All, which is one of two brand new songs on the forthcoming compilation, is new this week on RadiJohan.
