After THE MISSION finally broke up last year, singer Wayne Hussey finally had the time to record his first solo album, titled “Bare”. Wayne presented the songs on his solo-tour a few months ago. The album also features 4 live bonus-tracks on, recorded at a sold-out show in Bochum in October. The recording is uncut and with Wayne’s explanations and comments it really captures this special atmosphere that prevails at his concerts.
For the album Wayne did not only record old classics from THE MISSION (Shelter from the storm, Garden of Delight, Black mountain mist) but he also covered songs from The Cure (A night like this) , U2 (With or without you) or David Bowie (Ashes to Ashes). Wayne Hussey does play these songs with all due respect and also adds a new twist to the songs. “Bare“ is an album which really reflects Wayne Hussey’s personal taste. The tracks were recorded with a lot of passion since he always loved playing them on an acoustic set during a MISSION show or he wanted to give them a personal touch. “Bare” is a very personal and melancholic album which perfectly fits into the cold autumn and winter days.
