Club Nouveau Returns with “That Ain’t Love” — “Consciousness” Available This Spring


Grammy award winning Club Nouveau, the Pop band formed by record producer Jay King in 1986 returns. After nearly three decades of success, Club Nouveau is reemerging with a soon-to-be released new CD. Music mogul Jay King and original members, singer/songwriter/arranger Valerie Watson, rejoin Samuelle Praterfor for a number of fresh music projects.

King unknowingly launched an empire when he formed the independent label JAY Records, whose first release – the Timex Social Club hit “Rumors” – ushered in the biggest selling single of 1986 (3.5 million copies and #1 R&B single on the Billboard Charts). With a Top 10 single on the Billboard Pop charts for over 56 weeks, the results were history-making as nobody had before taken an R&B song from an indie label to such heights.

Set to deliver the Club Nouveau album “Consciousness,” in the spring, and as a precursor they have released the first single “That Ain’t Love” (listen above). As well, fans can anticipate the “Club Nouveau Greatest Hits” project in the fall of 2014; offering previously unreleased versions of “Rumors” & “Thinking About You.”
