Michael Ball and Alfie Boe announce new album Together Again

The pair have signed a triple record deal with Decca Records following the success of their Christmas Number 1 album.

Following the monumental success of their first album Together, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe have announced that they will release another collaborative record later this year.

Titled Together Again, Ball & Boe will capitalise on the huge appetite for another album from their fans, and the record is one of several revealed today in a huge statement from Decca Records. Not only will Ball & Boe put out their sophomore release as a duo, but the pair have also signed solo deals with the label.

After a huge UK tour last year, the duo will reunite on the road for a further eight dates later this month, while a Winter 2017 jaunt has been confirmed to (so far) visit 10 arenas across the country in cities such as Cardiff, Brighton, Bournemouth, Aberdeen and London.

Ball & Boe's Together debuted at a very respectable Number 2 in its first week of release last November, before peaking at Number 1 some five weeks later. In its second week at on top, the album scooped its highest weekly sales tally to date, shifting 110,000 units to scoop the coveted Christmas Number 1 album.

Together was Alfie Boe's first ever Number 1 album in the UK, and Michael Ball's first for 24 years. Overall, the album finished the year as the best-selling LP released in 2016, and has sold over 600,000 copies to date.
