Original songwriter/lead vocalist of ENUFF Z'NUFF, Donnie Vie, is back with his latest solo album, Beautiful Things, which will be released on June 7th via Deko Music on CD/LP/Digital, with the first single "I Could Save The World" out on May 24th. The album also features special guests Paul Gilbert (MR. BIG), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (JELLYFISH) and Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X), and will be issued as limited edition LP bundles (while supplies last), which can be ordered via: http://www.merchbucket.com/category/DEKOMUSIC-DONNIEVIE.html

Included in the bundles will be:

  • One (1) Donnie Vie - Beautiful Things LP
  • One (1) Donnie Vie - Shirt
  • One (1) Donnie Vie - Autographed Poster
  • One (1) Download Card featuring bonus track, "Instant Karma" EXCLUSIVE TO THIS LP
To promote the album, Vie has filmed a great new music video for a cover of the John Lennon classic, “Instant Karma” which sees him playing piano by the sea...and strumming the guitar on the street! But along with these fun scenes lies a more serious message - trying to right what is wrong in the world today. The video can be viewed on KNAC.COM HERE.

“When everyone gave so much to make this video ["Instant Karma"] out of love, I decided that I would pay it forward and dedicate it to a needy cause,” explains Vie. “The effects of bullying are astounding. I know because I was a victim of it. Lennon campaigned for peace and love and that’s what his song shall be used for."

Donnie has been one of rock’s biggest secrets, who has been crafting melodic power pop and rock songs for over 30 years. He and ENUFF Z'NUFF were instant critics’ darlings, with a debut record that soared up the charts generating two long playing MTV hits, "New Thing" and "Fly High Michelle". A “Top Pick” from Rolling Stone Magazine, and inciting numerous TV and radio performances with repeat invitations from David Letterman and Howard Stern, the group released their "self-titled" and follow up Strength on Atco Records, before being picked up by Clive Davis and signed to his Arista label for Animals with Human Intelligence.

The Grammy-nominated artist has amassed over 25 albums’ worth of songs and decades of live shows to his name, both with and without his former band. Now a solo act, Vie continues his songwriting and performing under his own name. Rolling Stone Magazine described Donnie’s writing skills as “BEATLE-esque pop songcraft and ripping hard rock,” while Billboard Magazine says, “If there is such a thing as false advertising in rock & roll, then ENUFF Z'NUFF is one of its textbook examples. Packaged in garish peace-glam attire by their record company, the group was wrongly lumped in with the disposable pop-metal bands of the late ’80s rather than appreciated for the truly gifted power pop act that they were.”

"This is my first record in 4 years. I had to make sure it was great. The songs started coming, starting with "I Could Save the World", which opened the door for the rest. I got great artists to play on it like Paul Gilbert (MR. BIG), Roger Manning (JELLYFISH), Matt Walker (GARBAGE/MORRISSEY) and many other killers. The record exceeded my hopes and expectations. It’s like an ice cream sundae made out of sounds & colors, with more hooks than a tackle box. And of course my pipes, stronger than ever! The song "Beautiful Things" felt like a great album title, so I expanded on that. It hits hard from start to finish. I’m proud to be a big part of it, it’s my best work yet, and that’s saying something after nearly 25 great records with ENUFF Z'NUFF and my solo stuff combined. If you like cool aggressive pop, you will love this. I sure do. Share the love, stop the hate, and lets save the world.”

Soon, fans will be able to experience Donnie’s immense musical talents once more, with the arrival of Beautiful Things.

  • "Beautiful Things"
  • "Plain Jane"
  • "Breaking Me Down"
  • "I Could Save the World"
  • "Fly"
  • "Tender Lights"
  • "I'll Surrender"
