"Footsteps 2" is the second part of Chris de Burgh's album "Footsteps" that was released in 2008. As in the previous work, de Burgh performs cover versions and new songs composed by him. In this case, the Argentine-Irish singer songwriter plays 14 songs, such as two Beatles` classic hits, "Let it Be" and "Lady Madonna"; Steve Winwood's "While You See A Chance": "S.O.S", originally recorded by "ABBA"; "The Living Years", by "Mike and The Mechanics", and "In the Ghetto", a ballad that became a classic when it was performed by Elvis Presley; plus two bonus tracks on CD: Bob Dylan's "Catch the Wind" and Cat Stevens' "Moonshadow"…
Footsteps is the 17th studio album from Ireland-based singer/songwriter Chris de Burgh. De Burgh handpicked 13 songs that have influenced him throughout his career, as well as two songs especially written for the album. Recording live in just eight days, de Burgh tackled classics by great songwriters, including Lennon and McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Pete Seeger.

Simultaneously more pop-oriented and experimental than either Ghost in the Machine or Zenyatta Mondatta, Synchronicity made the Police superstars, generating no less than five hit singles. With the exception of "Synchronicity II," which sounds disarmingly like a crappy Billy Idol song, every one of those singles is a classic. "Every Breath You Take" has a seductive, rolling beat masking its maliciousness, "King of Pain" and "Wrapped Around Your Finger" are devilishly infectious new wave singles, and "Tea in the Sahara" is hypnotic in its measured, melancholy choruses.
