UK Country-Pop duo The Shires’ third studio album ‘Accidentally On Purpose‘ has unleashed some stellar singles such as ‘Guilty’, ‘Echo’ and ‘Stay The Night’ and now ‘Ahead Of The Storm’ has been officially lifted off the record which was a major chart success peaking at number 3 back in April.
The latest release has been given a funky pop infused makeover thanks to the major production skills of Alex Joseph. And while Country purists may not fall in love with this new version of the heartfelt ballad ‘Ahead Of The Storm’, it will allow it more traction in regards to radio airplay across more mainstream channels.
It’s a brave decision by The Shires to allow such a country infused track to be given a huge pop makeover but it’s also a good decision as it gives listeners another insight into what the record breaking duo are capable of. And the new version still keeps one foot firmly in the country world thanks to the lush guitar riffs.

The latest release comes ahead of the duo’s support slot for Shania Twain’s upcoming UK tour which kicks off next week.
