Inspired by the Wim Wenders classic , ‘Paris, Texas’ , the band were formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1987 by singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone and had a global hit with their debut single, “ I Don’t Want A Lover’ in 1989, drawn from the critically acclaimed record, ‘Southside’ . In 1997, the band released “White on Blonde” which spawned the massive hits “Halo”, “Black Eyed Boy” and “Say What You Want” which they also memorably did a version of with Method Man from the Wu Tang Clan. In the following year, “The Hush” was released which featured the well renowned tracks “In Our Lifetime” and “Summer Son”. Thereafter, The Greatest Hits was released in 2000 which is where you can find the famous tracks “In Demand” and “Inner Smile”. In the decade that followed, the band released two more albums – including the top three hit Sleep which featured Paul Buchanan and Peter Kay – before coming back in 2012 with “The Conversation”. The lead track of the same name was a massive success around Europe. Texas released their 9th studio album, Jump On Board (2017) to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success, and spawning the hits ‘Let’s Work It Out’, and ‘ Tell That Girl’. The videos for these starred Thierry Henry and “The Hound” from Game of Thrones. The 10th album “Hi” (2021) gave the band their highest charting position in the UK for over 20 years. It includes the singles “Mr Haze” and “Hi” which reunited the band with the Wu Tang Clan after 23 years.
