Dan Reed New Album “Confessions” Released Tuesday 14th September 2017

Confessions will be available for worldwide pre-order through the Dan Reed Store from Wednesday 5th July, before it is officially released on Friday 15th September.

The new album will coincide with Dan’s intimate solo tour in beautiful settings which kicks off at London’s St. Pancras Old Church in on Thursday 14th September. Tickets for Dan’s solo tour can be booked from www.ticketsource.co.uk/dan-reed-confessions.

Each of the UK solo concerts will be filmed and recorded for an upcoming live DVD compilation.  Every person who buys a ticket to one of the UK concerts will receive a free DVD download in September.

The official music video for first single Smile will be premiered on Monday August 14th.

A limited edition run of 100 signed copies of the single Smile on 7” cream coloured vinyl is now available for pre-order before it is officially released on Friday September 1st. The single includes a second track Lift You Up on the B-Side. Pre-order the single from the Dan Reed Store.

Confessions is Dan Reed’s fourth solo album and is a bit of a departure from previous solo releases. Reed performed all the live instruments and vocals, and also programmed the beats and synth parts.

The album features special guest appearances by guitarists Rob Daiker, Geoff Tyson and Martin Tidmarsh performing a few solos on the tracks Smile and The Great Divide, while Daiker added some additional drum programming on and mixed the album.

For Confessions, Dan wanted to create a genuine ‘solo’ album to push his own comfort zone as a keyboardist and guitarist’, creating something entirely from self-expression.

Confessions is a beautifully composed work expressing a singular intention and vision based around one integral concept in our lives. Confessions is not a rock album but rather a chilled out, electro/acoustic soul album about the oldest theme in the book… love.

There is a reason for this direction both thematically and musically. Since the reformation of the Dan Reed Network, and with their current album Fight Another Day (released to rave reviews in 2016), Reed is guiding his solo work more in the pop/soul direction and leaving the harder edged rock/funk material he enjoys writing for future DRN releases.


Confessions leaves politics and social commentary behind and these subjects are replaced by songs about the journey to, and from, love… and then back again.

Says Dan, “I felt in a time when we as a human race are more and more divided over political, economic, environmental and social issues it was important to try and write new songs that are calming in complicated times, songs about that which unites us, inspires us, and brings us comfort in this world. That element always seems to come down to communication, compassion, empathy, warmth of family, friends. ‘Love’ is, more than anything, the air that our soul needs to retain the passion for life.”

The first single Smile is about tuning out the noise of the day, the chaos, and finding solace in the simple smile of someone we share this road called life with. However, don’t be fooled by the title and theme. There’s no sugar coated, ‘silly love songs’ on Confessions.
