Marty Wilde MBE, the 50s teen heart-throb who notched-up four Top 5 UK hits by the age of 20, and still remains an iconic stalwart throughout the industry, has unveiled the stunning new title-track from his forthcoming album, Running Together, with the single being released on 31 July (album out October); The song and video feature Marty’s two daughters, Roxanne Rizzo Wilde and [Spoiler! - Ed] the Brit award winning Kim Wilde, plus son Ricky who completed the picture with a wonderful arrangement of the last track on the album called Eddie which is a special tribute to Eddie Cochran. A complete family affair, Running Together inspired the family to create their very own rock-down in lockdown video – perfectly social distanced, yet rockin’ together, alongside the Wildcats. The single hotfoots Marty’s forthcoming new album of original material, Running Together, and sets the tone for a 50-date UK live tour (delayed due to lockdown, but kicking-live later this year.
