“In June 2016, De Burgh’s most iconic single “The Lady in Red,” celebrated its 30th anniversary. A fan favourite, to this day it remains one of the most played songs on the planet and reached the #1 position in 47 countries. Out of his repertoire of more than 280 songs, De Burgh’s other classic songs are staples on the radio: “Don’t Pay the Ferryman”, “Spanish Train”, “Patricia the Stripper”, “High on Emotion” and “A Spaceman Came Traveling” speak to a generation of music lovers, who have rewarded him with sales of 50 million albums and sold out performances worldwide.

A Better World, available in stores and on iTunes, reflects several themes: love, war and adventure, travel, discovery, and home-coming. It deals with the past, present, and the future in a combination of different styles, tempos, and instrumentation. Always in tune with global and political issues, Chris de Burgh provides much food for thought in the lyrical content of his new album.” Organizers Donald K Donald Events concluded in the release.
