2014-09-09 12:54

Cape Town – Three-time Grammy winning San Francisco band Train is back with their 7th studio album, Bulletproof Picasso, and Channel24 is offering fans an exclusive pre-listen before the album officially drops on 16 September.

The album’s first single, Angel In Blue Jeans, has soared to the Top 15 of Triple A and Adult Top 40 radio in only a month, joining the band’s successful arsenal of other radio-embraced singles throughout their two-decade career.  

Bulletproof Picasso was produced by previous Train collaborator Butch Walker, and reflects frontman-singer/songwriter Pat Monahan’s penchant for distinctive musical stylings on this one.  

"I’ve always wanted to emotionally connect with people through the songs," says Monahan.  "But I also want to get into people’s lives with this album.  We’re very excited about Bulletproof Picasso and we’re looking forward to performing some of the new songs for all our fans."

Other songs on the new album include the combustible title track, Bulletproof Picasso, Cadillac, Cadillac, Just A Memory, Give It All, and The Bridge, among others.

Train has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honours and nominations.
