“Right Place Right Time as a title sums up my career to this point. I’ve worked hard everything I’ve done, doing what’s felt right, and everything has fit into place. It’s the sentiment for this album, a body of work of great pop songs. And I’ve gone in a different place again this time.” – Olly Murs
Who is he?
Olly Murs is one of the most successful pop stars of the past decade. In four years, he’s crafted three albums which have produced four No singles (including the platinum-selling Dance With Me Tonight and smash hit Troublemaker ft. Flo Rida), and a further five Top 20 hits. First album Olly Murs (2010) is double-platinum and second album In Case You Didn’t Know (2011) has now sold over a million copies. His new album Right Place Right Time shot to the top of the albums chart immediately on release – giving Olly the biggest week one sales by a male artist in 2012. Olly also managed the rare feat of being top of the albums and singles chart simultaneously when Troublemaker hit the top spot for a second week.
2013 has seen Olly rise through the ranks to become one of the most successful UK solo artists of recent times. Not only has he completed his own sold out UK arena tour, but he has played to millions as special guest on Robbie Williams’ European stadium tour. ‘Right Place Right Time’ has sold well over a million copies worldwide, and Olly has scooped up platinum discs in six countries (and counting).
Close Up on Right Place Right Time
The special edition of ‘Right Place Right Time’ features seven extra tracks, including two brand new songs, songs by other artists that feature Olly, new versions of Dear Darlin’ and Hand on Heart, and a cover of ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’.
You don’t get to be such a phenomenon without knowing how to constantly improve yourself and Olly’s third album Right Place Right Time is a set of 12 songs that improve on the remarkable standard he’s already set. The choruses are even catchier, the lyrics even more heartfelt… and its classic feel is that of a master singer and songwriter who has the skill to create tunes for anyone of any age. Olly insists “I wanted it to be brilliant throughout, from track to track to track.”
