Rick Astley – probably most famous for ‘never gonna give you up’ back in 1987, is set to release a new single called ‘lights out’ on June 7 in the UK.
He is reported to not be expecting the song to take him to the levels of fame he reached in the eighties, and early reviews of the song would suggest that this will be the case unfortunately.
Here is a link to the song (audio only)
He made history in the UK by becoming the first male artist to reach the pop top 10 with his first eight singles. Never gonna give you up was #1 for 5 weeks, an extraordinary effort for a new, 21 year old singer.
The 44-year-old has sold approximately 40 million records worldwide.
