Footsteps 2 is the nineteenth studio album by singer/songwriter Chris De Burgh, released in Germany, Switzerland and Austria on October 14, 2011, and in the UK and Ireland on October 17, 2011 through Ferryman Productions. Footsteps 2 follows the concept that captured the public's imagination with Footsteps. The album has a couple of new songs, as well as his interpretations of some classic tunes, which include Steve Winwood's "While You See a Chance", Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou", Mike & The Mechanics "The Living Years" and Abba's "SOS".
De Burgh said upon releasing Footsteps, "Listening to the great songwriters was the inspiration for me to try and become a good songwriter myself. I'm talking about the likes of Lennon & McCartney and Bob Dylan; people as good as that just don't seem to exist any more. I learned my trade, my craft, almost at the feet of the Great Masters. And that is my musical journey. Those songs are my footsteps."
