Andrea Corr announced on BBC radio that The Corrs are working on a new album and plan to perform live in Hyde Park on September 3rd. Raising families has kept Jim and Caroline Corr away from performing while Andrea and Sharon Corr have been busy pursuing solo careers.
Andrea, the lead singer, said, “We’re in the process of making a new record, so it feels just right to do this. It’s exciting.”
Andrea went on to explain that the band had to take a break when two of her siblings became consumed with, “babies and all that,” but that The Corrs are now once again ready to dazzle crowds with their unique music.
The Corrs enjoyed years of fame and success after crafting a great sound that can be described as the intersection of pop rock, folk and traditional Celtic Irish folk. They have released five studio albums, a number of singles, and have gone platinum in multiple countries. Their album "Talk on Corners" was the biggest-selling album in the UK in 1998. The group’s third studio album, "In Blue", topped the charts in 17 different countries, as well.
The Corrs can also be praised for their commitment to giving back and helping others. The band has participated in, and played at, a number of charity concerts for noble causes including Pavarotti and Friends for the Children of Liberia, Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Campaign to raise HIV awareness, and The Prince’s Trust for underprivileged young citizens of the UK.
Queen Elizabeth II even made The Corrs honorary members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for their commitment to making a positive difference in the world.
Here's a taster of what we've all been missing for the past few years. Welcome back, the Corrs!
