LEAD SINGER ALEX MCDONALD FROM UP AND COMING BAND ‘BURLESQUE’ EXCLUSIVE TO SHIC THE NEW ALBUM ‘COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS’ HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED TELL US WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT? It’s a collection of all our favourite songs and tributes to our favourite artists. we all wanted to put our own touch on the album in a more personal way what kind of sound can we expect from it? Its very eccelctic. we have very different tastes when it comes to music but all have the same goal, to make the album successful. our fans can expect some old rock classics, jazz, definately a few funk numbers and of course the occasional ballad. rumours have been circling of a tour in america... we would love to do a tour in the U.s. since our UK one went down so well. all i can say is watch this space! burlesque has been through some tough times this past 2 years with certain members leaving and new ones coming in. has it made the band stronger? ‘COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS’ absolutely. we’ve been through such a transition period and have come out the IS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ON ITUNES NOW! other side determined to make the new line up the best yet. what are your plans for the festive season? i have a few days off over christmas so i think we’re all going to head back home and celebrate the new year with our families. 102
