ALBUM ARTWORK TO BE UNVEILED

One World’ is available to pre-order now.

In time for romantics around the world to serenade their loved ones, this Valentines Day the legendary Billy Ocean shares a new song, ‘Nothing Will Stand In Our Way’. The track is the second to be taken from the forthcoming album ‘One World’, which is released on 17 April through Sony Music. Listen to ‘Nothing Will Stand In Our Way’ here.

No stranger to writing and performing some of the greatest love songs ever, Billy’s new track (co-written and produced by long term collaborator Billy Eastman) follows the title track from ‘One World’ which has been a massive radio hit, gaining a spot on the coveted BBC Radio 2 A-List.

Today also sees the artwork being unveiled for the new album shot by the renowned photographer Dean Chalkey.

Billy Ocean today said The fundamental element of any relationship is based on love, because love” encompasses all. For example, if we look at the relationship between two people and extend it to a community, even further to a country, even further still to the world, the same ingredients are required to make it work. The things that can affect the recipe of love are negativity, hate, and mistrust. Whether looking at it from a matrimonial point of view, or a political one, those things have to be thrown aside to let the light of love shine through. Hence, “nothing will stand in our way.”

Following the album release, 2020 is shaping up to be a bumper year for Billy Ocean. He will be receiving his newly-announced MBE for Services to Music then, he will embark on the One World Tour around the UK, kicking off in Glasgow on 18 September.

Billy Ocean is a Grammy Award winner with worldwide sales of over 30 million. He hit the number one spot across three continents in the 70s and 80s, counting no fewer than six UK top 10 singles. ‘Caribbean Queen’ stormed to number one on both the US singles chart and US R&B chart and is amongst Billy’s six US top 10 singles. With top 10 albums the world over, Billy has notched up an impressive three Platinum albums (including two which are certified 2x Platinum).

The album sees Billy reunite with producer Barry Eastmond who wrote and produced a number of Billy’s biggest hits including When The Going Gets Tough and Love Zone. Recorded over the summer of 2019 in studios in Manchester and New York Billy co-wrote all 12 tracks on the album.
