Prominent British duo Lighthouse Family has released a new album after going on an 18-year hiatus. Singer Tunde Baiyewu and Producer Paul Tucker confirmed that they are back and are going on tour as well.
Lighthouse Family rose to stardom during the late ’90s when they released successful easy listening singles Lifted, Ocean Drive, High and Lost In Space. Notably, all their releases earned heavy radio play and album sales, with High becoming their most popular song. During this time, the band embarked on a world tour as well. However, after releasing their third album in 2001, the band decided to take a break citing fatigue. However, singer Tunde Baiyewu eventually became a solo artist. He released two albums, namely: Tunde (2004) and Diamond in a Rock (2013) before going back to Lighthouse Family.
Despite the hiatus, the duo claimed that they never got out of touch and that no bad blood figured during the hiatus. That’s just it – a really long hiatus.
Fortunately, the band released their fourth studio album last May 2019. Entitled A Blue Sky In Your Head, the album contains 13 new tracks, with lead singles My Salvation and Live Again earning plays on BBC Two and other stations. Following the album release, the band announced that they will be doing an extensive tour of their home country from July until February 2020. Notably, the band has already sold out concerts as far as February. Eventually, the band finally caved in and agreed to do more shows for the brits. Notably, the band has not yet figured in many concerts outside the UK. Although they’re set to headline the Singapore Grand Prix this September, fans across the globe have yet to book their tickets to memory lane.
