Solstice Kiss – Vinyl Out Now

Solstice Kiss‘, taken from Simple Minds’ eighteenth studio album, ‘Direction Of The Heart‘ and is now available today as a Exclusive Limited Edition Collectors 12″ yellow vinyl single version.


With Celtic textures underpinning its widescreen melodrama and Sarah Brown’s infernal vocals, ‘Solstice Kiss’ is a standout moment, a firm fan favourite and the fourth and final single to be released from the acclaimed album that reached number 4 in the official UK album charts.

The song written by Jim Kerr, Charlie Burchill and Ged Grimes was selected by Scottish whisky distiller The Macallan as the soundtrack to their ‘Spirit of 1926’ global campaign.

'Occasionally a song emerges where you try to evoke both the spirit of the times and the surrounding landscape that brought it into being. Solstice Kiss is one of those songs.' Jim Kerr
