Texas Release Video For Their Version of the Northern Soul Classic ‘Keep On Talking’ Out Now

UK 2024 Arena Tour Announced

Today, Texas have released the video for their stunning cover of ‘Keep On Talking. Taken from the band’s career spanning new compilation album The Very Best Of 1989 – 2023, the video, directed by Bailey Tom Bailey, was shot at London’s Moth Club. 


Featuring an ensemble of northern soul dancers, including 2022 world champion Sally Malloy, the video sees the group of performers  rejoice in an all nighter at the working men’s club in Hackney. Watch the video HERE.


A foot-shuffling cover of the 1965 Northern Soul deep-cut, written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham – and produced by Oldham in Muscle Shoals, the band’s rendition of ‘Keep On Talking’ has the Texas stamp. It’s packed to the brim with attitude, vibe and coated in Sharleen Spiteri’s undeniable tones. “It was a dream to work with Spooner on this northern soul classic that he and Dan Penn wrote,” Sharleen said of the track. “The records that Spooner has played on alone made working with this legend very, very special.” 


34 years since they recorded ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’, then watched, gobsmacked, as it reached Number Eight in the charts, Texas, one of the UK’s most loved bands, have gone on to produce ten studio albums, selling over 40 million records worldwide. The band celebrate their continued legacy with a special 2LP & 2CD compilation The Very Best Of 1989 – 2023 – out now on [PIAS] Recordings.


Following a triumphant, stand out performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this year, Texas will return to the stage for a run of UK Arena shows in 2024. Kicking off at Leeds First Direct Arena on Friday September 6th and culminating with a hometown date at Glasgow’s Hydro on Saturday September 14th, the run will see the band play a set of classic hits from their recently released The Very Best Of 1989 – 2023.
