Tina Turner - Steamy Windows - Single

EMI Promo

TINA TURNER breaks her decision, taken after the monumental "Break Every Rule" tour two years ago, never more to go on tour, and simultaneously redeem the other promise that she would like to feel the stage again, if her latest LP "Foreign Affair" becomes successfully. Now, after several weeks on top of the German LP charts, the album achieved platinum status. Therefore, for the end of May and early June next year, fixed appointments in several German stadiums (Cologne, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, etc.) are booked. Ticket sales have already begun.

Until then, we all have to be satisfied with her studio recordings, but also her records fulfills all acoustic requirements. After "The Best," the second single is "STEAMY WINDOWS". The mid-tempo song was written from swamp rock king Tony Joe White, who also played the lead guitar. TINA TURNER's perfect voice, the trumpet section of Gary Barnacle and Jeff Bova and Dan Hartman's rustic production predestine this LP opener for the charts.
