Talk about something coming out of left field!
Calling America! Great news for all Shayne’s US fans! The brilliant third album Obsession is set for a digital release on February 8th in the US! “Close To Close” will be the lead track in the States so don’t forget to call your local radio station and request it! 😉 Also visit VEVO on Tuesday to see the hot video for… ‘Gotta Be Somebody’ and be sure to follow Shayne on Twitter for more news.
The rumors of this happening have floated for every album since he debuted, but it seems a bit odd coming on the heels of a less-than-successful album like Obsession. Then again, Taio Cruz wasn’t exactly the biggest star in the UK when he released Rokstarr in the United States, and he ended up with two of 2010’s biggest hits in “Dynamite” and “Break Your Heart.” It will be interesting to see just how much promotion Shayne puts into the US, as well as if there will be a video for “Close To Close.” I think with the right push, he could actually do well here in the States. “Close To Close” sounds like something that could do well on the radio.

Oh my god! I love it. I wonder if it will actually be the Obsession album or a mix of songs from that plus singles from his first two albums.
Exact same tracks. The fact that they keep pushing it as a digital release doesn’t really bode well for them doing much to promote the album.
Figures. At least he’ll get some exposure for being available on iTunes. It can’t hurt.
I’d kinda like to hear a duet between him and Lexi. Just a thought…
