Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Si­mon Webbe has an­nounced new solo al­bum 'Smile'. The Blue star hasn't re­leased a record in 10 years, since 2006's 'Grace', and has re­vealed the in­spi­ra­tion for his third out­ing is the fact peo­ple don't smile enough and have reg­u­lar hu­man con­tact be­cause of smart­phones and tech­nol­ogy. He ex­plained: "The al­bum is called 'Smile' be­cause not a lot of peo­ple are smil­ing these days. "Ev­ery­body's too busy us­ing their phones to con­nect, no­body's re­ally con­nect­ing anymore. For me, I just wanted to put a ti­tle out there that was self-ex­plana­tory and will hit home." The track fea­tures lead sin­gle 'Noth­ing With­out You', which the 39-year-old hunk ser­e­naded his now-fi­ance, Ayshen Ke­mal, with dur­ing his pro­posal in Fe­bru­ary. Speak­ing about his re­turn to the music and how he has de­vel­oped as an artist, he said: "To be hon­est I didn't re­al­ize that much time had passed be­cause I've still been go­ing out there and do­ing a lot of gigs abroad. Be­cause I've had so much time out of the game, I've got so much more to say now. I needed to evolve as an artist and I needed to close a chap­ter, and that's what I've done with this al­bum." 'Noth­ing With­out You' is re­leased to­day and the full record drops on Au­gust 25.
