An insightful 1987 promo ad for 17-year-old Ashley Paul’s breakthrough 12” dance/pop hit said it best – not to mention prophetically – about the infectious track: “The natural setting for ‘When Boys Cry’ is the radio. . .When it gets on the airwaves, watch out.” The track, penned by Victoria Shaw (Lady A, Garth Brooks, Eric Church) and Peggy Stanziale (Madonna) and produced by industry legend Joel Diamond (Engelbert & Gloria Gaynor), became a Top 20 single and reached #36 on the Billboard Dance chart.
Ashley’s ‘80s hit, with its emotional and empowering theme and thumping energy as relevant as ever, “When Boys Cry” is primed to hit the floor and the charts once again via a fresh, dynamic remix by British duo Until Dawn, who have worked their magic with hits by the likes of Pink, Lisa Stansfield, Christina Aguilera, and Carly Rae Jepsen. The Until Dawn remix will be released on Dauman Music.
