Nearly two and a half years after British rock band Delirious? performed their final concert together, former lead singer Martin Smith is preparing to launch his solo career. Martin will launch his first solo EP, titled 'God's Great Dance Floor', with his first solo concert at St Peter's Church in Brighton, England, on 2nd March 2012.
The singer has spent the past few days in Bogota, Colombia, shooting several music videos for new songs including 'Back To The Start' and title track 'God's Great Dance Floor' which features a flashmob of more than 600 dancers. Posting photos from the video shoots on his Twitter page (see below), Martin wrote "Great to be back in Colombia! I did something this week I haven't done in years. Shot a video for a new song 'Back to the start'. For those of you asking, yep it's Bogota in the background, 600 hundred dancers and a lot of sunburn!"
Martin has been leading worship at various events around the world over the past year, including the US, New Zealand, Singapore, Argentina and Colombia. Other track titles revealed by the former Delirious? frontman in various Twitter posts include 'Onward Christian Soldiers', 'Waiting Here For You', 'You Carry Me' and 'Song of Solomon'. Martin revealed that he has also recorded versions of several of the songs with Spanish vocals.
Tickets for the launch gig can be ordered via martinsmith.tv, which also states: "Almost two and a half years since his last gig, Martin Smith returns to share a fresh collection of songs and launch his new EP 'God's Great Dance Floor'. We all come alive on God's great dance floor."
