New Video Alert - Texas - Dry Your Eyes

We’ve always loved a bit of Sharleen Spiteri ‘s unique vocals and as the band continue to celebrating their 25th anniversary year, Scottish band Texas continue to release tracks now adding the stunning Dry Your Eyes...

Co-written by Spiteri and Johnny McElhone with Richard Hawley Dry Your Eyes is a Texas at their anthemic best, with its flavours of early Blondie, rock’n’roll and an unforgettable sing-a-long chorus. The story of the song is described by frontwoman Spiteri as “one woman talking to another who’s going through a really shitty time. Absolutely a through-and-through woman’s song.”

The accompanying video continues the great Texas tradition of eye-catching storylines and unusual cameos with This Is England’s Vicky McLure and Lip Services’ Ruta Gedmintas taking the starring roles alongside Sharleen in a pub scene. Vicky joins the likes of Alan Rickman, Jean Reno and Peter Mullan as Texas video guest stars. 

Sharleen goes on to explain “It was a pleasure working with Vicky and Ruta as they're such great actresses and good friends of mine so the whole day was easy and enjoyable. Tto be honest when you're in a pub having a drink with your mates it feels more like a night out than a day at work. I thought we were genius at acting drunk!! “.

Ahead of the single release Texas embark on a nationwide tour in eight years commencing in York on November 9th and running through the rest of November.
