New Jon Allen Album ‘Blue Flame’ Out Now

The highly-anticipated new Jon Allen Album Blue Flame is now available in North America

Jon Allen, acclaimed singer-songwriter from London, England has released his highly anticipated new album, Blue Flame today, May 18th, 2018 via OK!Good Records. With a voice that is equal parts Rod Stewart, Van Morrison and Sam Cooke, Jon Allen has an uncanny ability to write songs that feel instantly familiar.

Originally discovered by Mark Knopfler in 2006 (who later offered to play guitar for him), Allen broke onto the music scene with the single, “In Your Light” from his 2009 debut album ‘Dead Man’s Suit,’ which landed him a coveted spot on ‘Later…with Jools Holland’. Holland described how he first heard Allen on the radio and had to Shazam the track with his phone to find out who the singer was before insisting he was booked for the show. “It was one of the most amazing voices I’ve heard this year,” Holland explained.

Now on his fourth album, Allen has developed his folk-rock driven sound into a more blue-eyed soul approach. While all of Allen’s previous albums contained soulful elements, Blue Flame represents the singer’s first out-and-out soul record, bringing a soulful confection of feel-good tunes delivered with Allen’s inimitable whisky-soaked voice.

‘I wrote this album to try and cheer myself up.’ explains Allen. ‘My three previous albums were much more downbeat, so I figured with this record we could all do with a pick-me-up!’

From the infectious optimism of the album’s opening soul shuffle “Jonah’s Whale” to the resolute “Keep On Walking” and the poignant-yet-hopeful refrain of “Better Day”, Allen illuminates the common experiences of joy, love, loss and change, ultimately reminding us it is what we share that matters more than what divides us.

Blue Flame has charted on the UK iTunes charts, currently sitting at #36 on the main UK iTunes chart, and #12 on the UK iTunes Pop chart.
