Roger Taylor will be rereleasing his acclaimed album ‘Fun On Earth’ on limited edition double vinyl to coincide with Record Store Day 19th April. In Roger’s own words: -

"The resurgence of vinyl is so fantastically exciting because it's how we all fell in love with music, it really does sound better. Analogue forever!"

Originally released in November 2013 on Virgin/ EMI, ‘Fun on Earth’ is one of Taylor’s most exciting and accomplished pieces of work to date.  Recorded at Priory Studios, Surrey, the 13 track album is a triumphant display of superior musicianship showcasing Taylor at his vocal best.  ‘Say It’s Not True’ sees Taylor team up with Jeff Beck for the contemporary Queen favourite while the smooth refrains and heartfelt lyrics of ‘Sunny Day’ and ‘Be With You‘ come together with the powerful, reckless spirit of opening track ‘One Night Stand‘ and ‘I Am The Drummer (In A Rock n’ Roll Band)’ on what is an exhilarating, tour de force of rock music.

With a juggernaut career spanning six decades, Taylor was the beating heart of Queen penning landmark hits ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘A Kind of Magic’ and ‘Days of Our Lives’ while enjoying success across the globe with accomplished solo material which reached the heights of the UK charts. With ‘Fun On Earth,’ Roger Taylor has managed to produce an album of intelligence, outstanding melody,  sentiment and maturity without becoming ‘Middle Of The Road’ or dull, and that is one of his greatest achievements. 

Tracklisting:

The tracklisting for the vinyl rerelease of ‘Fun On Earth’ has been reordered by Roger himself to give vinyl listeners a more cohesive listening experience.
