Background

The tracks on the album "reveal Peter as a stronger, more mature vocalist, as he takes his sound into exciting new musical genres. A move that promises to impress even the most hardened of Andre critics and delight existing fans, whilst simultaneously reaching out to new listening audiences." The album was recorded in both the United Kingdom and United States, and reportedly "hits hard with stronger, more mature vocals and successfully explores surprising new musical dimensions. Moving forward from the uniquely Britishness of his previous album, the album traverses the full musical spectrum." For the album, Andre collaborated with a number of legendary hit writers and producers, including Nasri, known for his work with Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Simon Britton (Run D.M.C./Boys II Men). [2] [3] He also collaborated with Jaylien Wesley, known for his work with Akon, Cheryl Cole, Will.i.am, etc.

The album is described as "the record which brings Peter's musical career to its absolute pinnacle. With a substantial marketing campaign in place to support the launch, Andre seizes this fresh opportunity to present us all with something totally new. New label, new image, incredible new sound." [5] The album will be supported by a nationwide 31-date tour of the United Kingdom, taking place over three months between December 2012 and February 2013, playing a variety of Up Close and Personal dates.

Peter stated in an interview that; "This album is like nothing that I've ever made before. I've explored new genre territories and my voice has matured and strengthened. Fans and industry should prepare to hear something very different from me in this album. I’m so excited by the way it’s shaping up that I’ve decided to create a special deluxe edition for the fans. The deluxe fan’s edition of the album will be in a beautiful hardback book with exclusive pictures – and the best bit is it gives me the chance to thank each one of you personally. I just can’t wait for you all to hear it." [7]
