Stay True is the fourth album from Danny & The Champions Of The World. It’s also Danny George Wilson‘s eleventh album which includes six long players from the much loved Grand Drive plus a solo outing (as Danny George Wilson) entitled Famous Mad Mile.

Danny has been touring the world and making critically acclaimed records for nearly 20 years now, the first Grand Drive release was on Loose back in 1997. Stay True was recorded this year over five days at North London’s Reservoir Studios with Champs bass player Chris Clarke (ex Rockingbirds) and Danny at the helm.
