If you’re a committed Alfie Boe fan like me, you’ll have spotted the pun in the title of this post.  God Give Me Strength is a Bacharach song that appears on Alfie’s new album “Trust” which is due to be released in November in the UK.  Now, I have only recently become aware of this song and I can’t say I was enamoured with it when I first heard it and wasn’t all that keen on Alfie including it on “Trust”.  However, Alfie has guided me to all sorts of new music and I thought I would have to trust him on this one too. (Sorry about all these puns, can’t stop myself!) Luckily, Alfie has put me out of my misery by singing God Give Me Strength at the Glasgow Proms in the Park and I can safely day that I totally LOVED it! Thanks to Annie Lloyd for sharing this clip – look out for a stunning performance on the Hammond organ too x

Alfie has opened my ears to a whole new world of music (who knew I would ever have Led Zeppelin on my iPod?) and Trust looks to be no exception.  Already we know a few tracks; in addition to God Give Me Strength, we have Warren Zevon’s Keep Me In Your Heart, You’ve Got A Friend, Where You Lead and Dimming of the Day, a song that Alfie sang on his Storyteller tour earlier this year.

But the best news of all is that “Trust” is not only the name of the album, it is the title of an original song written for Alfie – the first such song to appear on one of Alfie’s albums.  Really can’t wait to hear that one!

“Trust” is available to pre-order from AmazonUK – go and do it now!

Thanks for reading xx
