Gilbert O’Sullivan has accumulated no less than fourteen top-forty hits, including “Clair”, “Alone Again (Naturally)”, “Get Down” and “Nothing Rhymed”, with number one singles on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as four top-five UK albums.
Both „Clair“ and „Get Down“ were number one hit singles in Britain, and additionally, the album „Back To Front“ topped the UK chart, emulating the success of the two million seller „Alone Again (Naturally)“, a six week US chart-topper. Since then, he recorded about eleven albums, including the UK Top 20 single, „What’s In A Kiss?“ and toured extensively in Europe and Japan.
The new album “Gilbertville” features 14 tracks, including the new single “All They Wanted to Say”, with an interlude halfway through featuring UK comedian Harry Hill reciting a short poem of Gilbert’s. The 14 tracks are made up of 13 new tracks, recorded in Nashville and London and a hidden track, a re-mixed version of “School Meals” which was recorded during the “A Scruff at Heart” sessions.
