Rock/pop icon donates his track ‘Running Together’ as the unofficial anthem as tomorrow’s London Marathon and encourages all to ‘stick together’ during these unusual times.

Marty was inspired earlier this year, after attending a charity fun run, “Everyone was together, working hard for the same cause,” comments Marty, “and I felt compelled to go home and create an upbeat fun track that would be a perfect boost to anyone running. Little did I know that lockdown was on the horizon at that time and this song has become even more poignant as we’ve needed to metaphorically ‘run together’, even when we’ve been forced to be apart.”

“So I wish everyone in tomorrow’s London Marathon all the best of luck, those in London and those running in their own separate towns and cities. No matter what, we’re all behind you and you’re all running together.’

‘Running Together’ is the title track taken from Marty Wilde’s new album ‘Running Together’ out now on Pushka Records/Right Track Universal

Marty Wilde MBE, originally born Reginald Smith. From mid-1958 to the end of 1959, Wilde was one of the leading British rock and roll singers, along with Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard. Wilde's backing group was called the Wildcats. Marty is father to pop stars Kim Wilde, Ricky Wilde and Roxanne Rizzo, and Marty Jr. Like many of his contemporaries, Wilde continued to perform in nostalgia tours in the UK and beyond. In 2007, he celebrated 50 years in the business with another UK tour which featured his youngest daughter Roxanne Wilde, and the issue of a compilation album, Born To Rock And Roll – The Greatest Hits. It included a duet with Kim Wilde of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word", which was released as a promotional only single. The tour culminated in a concert recorded at the London Palladium, and reunited the original remaining Shadows, Hank Marvin, Big Jim Sullivan, Bruce Welch, Brian Bennett, and Brian Locking, and also appearing with the Shadows that night, was the original bass player, the late and great Jet Harris. Wilde has also written lyrics for many hits across the years, details can be found here:

Over the past few years, Marty has been strongly connected with Dreamboats and Petticoats.

Kim Wilde:

UK pop icon of the 80s with hits including No2 ‘Kids In America’ and ‘Keep Me Hanging On’. Worldwide, Wilde has sold over 10 million albums and 20 million singles. She holds the record for being the most-charted British female solo act of the 1980s, with seventeen UK Top 40 hit singles. Starting in 1998, whilst still active in music, Kim branched into an additional career as a landscape gardener, which saw her presenting gardening shows on the BBC and Channel 4. In 2005, she won a Gold award for her courtyard garden at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show. But, Kim continues to hold the crown as one of the UK’s most successful female solo music artists, and her relentless touring schedule is testament to the mammoth public demand for her live performances. In 2019, two tracks from her 14th studio album ‘Here Come The Aliens’ album scored ‘Record of the Week’, and her Greatest Hits Album is set for release 2021, running parallel to her Greatest Hits UK tour.
