Bill’s personally selected track of the week is taken from his solo album Back To Basics and is the wonderful I Lost My Ring.

Back To Basics is an unashamedly stripped back album from Bill, and his first solo album in years. I Lost My Ring is taken from the album and features Bill on vocals.

List to I Lost My Ring below:

Back To Basics wears its influences on its sleeve – Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, JJ Cale – and there’s more than a passing nod to Bill’s own English background. It is that rare thing, a meld of styles and genres that actually work together – uplifting in a jaunty, dancey way and pensive in a bluesy, narrative way.

The CD comprises 12 tracks in total, eight of which are brand new songs. Musicians joining Bill in the studio include long time collaborator/guitarist Terry Taylor, Guy Fletcher (Mark Knopfler), Graham Broad and Robbie McIntosh, while co-production credit goes to Andy Wright (Jeff Beck, Eurythmics, Simply Red).
