The Thread is the debut solo studio album by Australian singer songwriter Alex Smith, released in April 2019 via ETO.

Alex Smith is the lead singer of Australian rock band Moving Pictures. Their debut album, Days of Innocence, was released in October 1981 and eventually peaked at #1 on the Australian albums chart in February the following year, propelled by the success of their #1 single "What About Me".

After Moving Pictures went on hiatus in 1987, Alex Smith has travelled, eventually settling in the UK finding happiness and stability in his life that had been missing for a long time. During these years Alex began his long and deeply felt journey into special needs education. Working and learning at “the John F Kennedy” special school in east London, he became even more aware and moved by the power of music, how it worked where language failed, where strictures and structures failed. A world of pure emotion and direct contact was opened up.

His solo album The Thread is a very personal affair, with songs like “Lemonade”, “Things Fall Apart” and “When You Are Lost” addressing his journey through a life of initial fame and chaos, to finding meaning, stability and happiness through music and education.

The album shows that Alex Smith has lost none of his vocal abilities since those initial Moving Pictures recordings.

This album is on compact disc housed in a cardboard gatefold sleeve with lyric insert, pressed in Australia via ETO and MGM.
