UB40’s 21st album ‘UB45’ has some familiar tunes. The title is a nod to the 45 years since the band’s first gig at The Hare & Hounds Pub in Kings Heath, Birmingham for a friend’s birthday on 9 February 1979.

The first single ‘Food for Thought/King’ was released a year later on 1 February, 1980 and the first album ‘Signing Off’ was released 29 August, 1980.

For ‘UB45’, UB40 have gone right back to those first two songs and re-recorded them, along some of the big hits like ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Cherry Oh Baby’ and ‘Kingston Town’.

Track Listing:

1. Home
2. Food For Thought
3. King
4. Champion
5. Tyler
