London, 8 October 2013: One of the most successful British groups of the past 25 years, Wet Wet Wet, announce today the release of ‘Step By Step – The Greatest Hits’ through Virgin EMI on 25 November 2013. The album will feature the Glasgow group’s first new material since their triumphant return with 2008 top 10 hit single ‘Weightless’.
Jam-packed with 17 hits, from 1987’s ‘Wishing I Was Lucky’ through ‘Goodnight Girl’ in 1991 to ‘Julia Says’ from 1995’s Picture This, the album also features three brand new tracks. ‘Playin’ Like A Kid’, ‘Sad Kinda Love’ and the absolutely unmistakable Wet Wet Wet brilliance on title track ‘Step By Step’ were all written and produced by the band and demonstrate just why Wet Wet Wet is a major part of British pop history.
Graeme Clark said: “We felt that in order to move forward we had to create new music - new songs that would sit comfortably alongside our iconic Greatest Hits. Writing these new songs was an 'awakening' for us all, a re-connection, allowing us to let the conscious and the soul of Wet Wet Wet sing out loud again.”
Selling in excess of 15 million singles and albums to date, Graeme Clark, Tommy Cunningham, Neil Mitchell and Marti Pellow have played to more than four million people in over 25 countries around the world. This figure will continue to grow as the band have announced a 12 date UK arena Greatest Hits tour this December.
Three number one singles, four number one albums, 508 weeks on the charts and holders of the 11th biggest selling single of all time, Wet Wet Wet’s reign continues… Step By Step.
