World Goes Round Revive The Eighties With Debut Album 'World Goes Round'

With their first two debut singles accumulating over two hundred thousands streams on Spotify alone, World Goes Round are back with a bang as they release their debut album into the world. The self-titled album ‘World Goes Round’ is made up of ten tracks rife with eighties influence, intricate lyricism and vibrant vocals. The “supergroup that never was” is made up industry legends Frank Musker, Elizabeth Lamers, Marty Walsh and Jeff Hull. What makes their story so intriguing is the complex accumulation of coincidences that has led to the delayed debut. Having been professional songwriter back in the ‘80s, the group met back in 1989 and began to pen songs solely for them. Due to a multitude of both personal and contractual reasons, these songs have languished unheard for over thirty years. Rewind back to the complete chaos of 2020 and World Goes Round’s recent revival might just be one of the few redeeming qualities of this year.


The self-titled album ‘World Goes Round’ is an immensely impressive body of work. Right from the punchy opening track ‘Rebel Heart’ straight through to their powerfully political end track ‘Big Heart,’ this album relishes in an electric energy that will have you vibing in your lockdown bedroom within seconds. ‘Big Heart’ is a stand out song in this dynamic debut, speaking on the unavoidable effect of climate change - having penned this anthem back in 1989, World Goes Round are the epitome of being ahead of your time. ‘Putting Down Roots’ boasts the grungier side to World Goes Round. Rich with distorted guitar chords and a pounding drum line, this track showcases the utter power of Frank and Elizabeth’s vocal performance. All ten tracks will transport you into the sultry sounds of the eighties as World Goes Round go from strength to strength this year as it’s evident that every second of this sonic sensation has been worth the wait.
