“Free” And “Come On Eileen” (Live On Jools Holland) (Video)

    Kevin Rowland has put Dexy Midnight Runners back together, rebranding them as Dexys and recording a new album titled One Day I’m Going to Soar. That record is due in June, and the band offered a preview of it on Jools Holland’s show in the U.K. last night in the form of the penultimate track, “Free.” Rowland has been touring with the group lately and they sound tight and together here, boding well for the release of Soar. It’s a typically idiosyncratic song, with spoken word interludes and a gently building Motown-style groove ebbing and flowing throughout. As a bonus, Dexys also delivered the classic “Come On Eileen.” Check out both songs below.
