Mike Lindup 'You Can't Just Live As An Island'

The New single from Changes 2 is out on Friday 5th November. It’s a dance tune called “You Can’t Just Live as An Island”.

“I used to be a real wallflower when I went to clubs – I’d only dance to certain tunes (like James Brown, Chaka or Stevie). I’d long to have the confidence to dance like nobody’s watching… so in this song, I’ve gone back in time and now I’m the one inviting the wallflower to join in the fun and get on the dancefloor.

It was a lot of fun to make, as I’m sure you will hear!

    Dear Mike,
    I’m an Italian lifelong fan of yours and of Level 42. Years ago I came to your gig in Milan @Blue Note and had the pleasure and honour of talking to you after the show. There’s such a great man beyond the artist. Thank you for what you are and give to your fans.
    Hoping to hug you once again, I wish you all the best and the success you deserve.

    Hi Mike. I love the new single. It’s really fun and fresh. Any chance of a list of contributors involved in the writing/recording of this gem or will all be revealed on the album? I’m sensing a Bluey vibe.
    Thanks for producing such consistently great music.
