Chris Difford News

Here's a press release on his tour:

Squeeze's Chris Difford Embarks on First US Solo Tour
January 31, 2007 -- It's been ten years since Chris Difford toured America, but starting February 25th, fans of the Squeeze lyricist and singer will have their first chance to hear him perform as a solo artist.

He's making the trip to support his second solo album, "South East Side Story." On the album, Chris revisits ten of Squeeze's biggest hits, turning their familiar melodic pop into gently spare country twang. With Melvin Duffy adding guitar, pedal steel and banjo and vocalist Dorrie Jackson's stunning harmonies, the album presents the songs in an exciting new light. Mojo pronounced it "impeccably tasteful" and "immaculately sung" while the BBC's website wrote that "it adds a new dimension to great songs and makes you want to seek out the originals again."
He himself comments on the new Squeeze compilation, The Essential Squeeze, here.
