Colton Ford :: Lives Again

This upcoming PRIDE season is shaping up to be one of the hottest on record - and we're not talking about the weather. In the new music department practically every major gay pop act has a new release ready to launch. If that doesn't fill you with anticipation then take a look at what super hunk heartthrob Colton Ford has just offered up to his fans.

The first single "Let Me Live Again" from his upcoming new full-length album The Way I Am (hitting the market in June with iTunes pre-orders lining up on June 4) has a very provocative music video directed by nightlife celebrity photographer Marco Ovando. It is already pushing YouTube to its downloadable limits and retro-naughty elegance.

Colton Ford takes a sexy trip back in time and pays homage to the hyper-sexualized images of 70's and 80's fetish and kink with a bit of Tom Of Finland thrown in for good measure. Looking his massively muscled up best in the black and white polarized images, Ford reignites and reclaims his hunky status. "Let Me Live Again" has enjoyed incredible mass success and climbed up the Billboard Dance charts - #2 on the Breakout Club Play Chart - when the remixes were released earlier this year.

With The Way I Am Ford hits the dance floor with a contemporary celebration of rhythmic beats courtesy of his collaborators which include WAWA, Nervo, RedTop, Fagault & Marina, Razor & Guido, with featured appearances from Ultra Naté and Chris Willis. This is the album the artist has been waiting his entire career to create, and it should complement, if not solidify his position as one of popular dance music's most gifted artists.

Some may comment that they know what Colton Ford is best at, but the truth is that with The Way I Am there's no denying that his talent is in the music. "This is probably the biggest album I've done musically to date," Colton Ford told EDGE. "The Way I Am encompasses all of the musical genres that I love, and certainly I feel that I've gotten into bed with collaborators - due to their own success - that have pushed me." Colton Ford's "Let Me Live Again" is a PRIDE anthem in the making.

Check out Colton Ford's video for "Let Me Live Again" from his upcoming album The Way I Am hitting the market on June 18 just in time for pride!

There will be some more very exciting news coming up on Colton Ford's new releases from the upcoming album, and stay tuned for more news on new music from Tony Winner Levi Kreis, and a new project from Sir Ari Gold.
