One Day I'm Going To Soar is a 2012 album by Dexys,[3] the band formerly known as Dexys Midnight Runners. It was the band's first album in 27 years.[4] The album features, alongside Dexys' main man Kevin Rowland, 1980s Dexys members "Big" Jim Paterson, Pete Williams and Mick Talbot, new recruits Neil Hubbard and Tim Cansfield, and guest vocalist Madeleine Hyland, who duets with Rowland on several songs.[5]

Pre-release teasers[edit]

The first two minutes of the first track of the album was uploaded to YouTube on 8 February 2012.[6] The track "Nowhere Is Home" was played on the radio for the first time on Radcliffe and Maconie's 6music show on 9 March 2012, as well as being made available for free download via the band's Soundcloud page.[7][8] Speaking on the 6music show, Kevin Rowland explained the 27-year gap between albums "I wanted to have material that I felt confident enough about ... I’ve got high standards, and that’s a blessing and a curse. The perfectionism hasn’t gone, although these days I won’t storm out of a room swearing and shouting at people."[9]

Dexys' live shows surrounding the album's release have consisted of the album in its entirety, followed by a selection of the band's older material.[10]

A single, "She Got a Wiggle", preceded the album, being released on 28 May 2012.[11]

On Dexys' official YouTube account, they have released 2 videos for "She Got a Wiggle" and "Incapable of Love".[12]
