Exclusive: Peter Andre reveals he’s recording a blues and soul album

Peter Andre has revealed that he is currently recording material for a new blues and soul album, which he promises will be his best LP to date.

The pop hunk spoke to stv.tv’s Gill Harvey about his exciting plans last week during a visit to Scotland, the day before he jetted off to Los Angeles to record the tracks.

“Everyone who does a new album always says it’s going to be their best work to date, but I’m definitely going all out on this album,” Pete revealed.

“I just love old soul and old blues so we’re using that in modern sound, and we’ll get a good couple of club tracks out there as well.”

The music will be unveiled to excited fans during Pete’s tour dates throughout 2012 and 2013, with the star promising a truly spectacular show, complete with special effects such as 3D visuals.

This summer Pete is also performing a special one-off gig with Steps at Hamilton Park Racecourse, taking place on July 7, and the 39-year-old pop hunk said he can’t wait for the show – especially as it’ll give him the chance to catch up with good friend Claire Richards.

“I’m very much looking forward to it, and I believe we’re doing it with Steps, which will be great,” Pete said. “I haven’t seen Claire from Steps for years, I remember Claire from way back in the day when she was in another girl group.”

Pete is also looking forward to returning north of the border, admitting he’s got a bit of a soft spot for Scotland.

“I’m really starting to fall in love with Scotland and I’m getting to come up a lot more often. For a while during all our earlier promos and stuff for the last few years Scotland was always missed out, and I never understood that. We’ve had a good chat with the management and aid we want to do much more up here."

Glad to hear it – looks like we’ll be seeing much more of Mr Andre over the next few months!
