Footsteps 2 is singer/songwriter Chris de Burgh's nineteenth original album. It was released in Germany, Switzerland and Austria on October 14, 2011, and in the UK and Ireland on October 17, 2011.

Footsteps 2 follows the concept that captured the public’s imagination with Footsteps, that of de Burgh creating cover versions of the songs which have inspired him over the years, along with a few new compositions.

As de Burgh said upon releasing Footsteps, “Listening to the great songwriters was the inspiration for me to try and become a good songwriter myself,” he says. “I’m talking about the likes of Lennon & McCartney and Bob Dylan; people as good as that just don’t seem to exist any more. I learned my trade, my craft, almost at the feet of the Great Masters. And that is my musical journey. Those songs are my footsteps.”[1]

This album peaked at number 10 in the German album chart,[2] and reached number 38 in the UK Albums Chart.[3]
