Newsflash! The title track from Alan's latest CD, Forever, has been awarded the "Runner Up" placement in the prestigious "Song of the Year 2012" contest.

Here's what the judges said about the song: "The 'Runner Up' placement shows that "Forever" received extremely high scores and was found to be competitive with the winning songs. Only the top writers receive this placement."

"Forever" MP3:

Alan released Forever, his fifth CD, in May 2012. There are 12 original songs and independent reviewers agree this is a very commercial album. It's a mix of catchy pop, dance and country with Alan playing all the instruments and singing all the vocals. The CD clearly showcases Alan as a talented songwriter and arranger.

"It takes me about a year to write, record and mix a CD," says Alan.

"I'm continually learning new things about songwriting, arranging and recording and my personal target is to make each new CD better than the last one. I'm hoping these 12 new songs attract the attention of established recording artists and music publishers."

As with his previous albums, Alan engaged industry veteran Jon Astley to master the Forever CD. Jon is based in London, England and his clients include Pete Townsend, The Who, George Harrison, Tears For Fears and Led Zeppelin.

Forever is available as a CD (with full colour booklet and lyrics) or MP3 download:
