Listen: new Thomas Dybdahl with song written with Olly and Gale

Today sees the release of Norwegian singer/songwriter Thomas Dybdahl’s The Great Plains album, which features a track called No Turning Back which was written with Olly and Gale. This is is 7th album and Thomas says:

“I’ve been lucky enough to get write with some of my favorite musicians on this album and I cannot wait until February to share this music and go on tour with these wonderful songs. The songs on this album are mostly about being in a place in life where you suddenly have time to look in the mirror and into yourself, only to discover that you almost do not recognize the man looking back at you. Songs about the realization that you don’t know as well as you thought, songs about childhood, family and songs about those moments, that in their wake, you can clearly see what was important for everything that came afterward. “

The album is available on Amazon and various digital outlets like iTunes and Spotify. Stream the song below:

BREAKING: Vinyl box set of Source albums to be released + secret gig

A new box set will be released in 2017 featuring the first four studio albums released. Called ‘Source Years Vinyl Box’, the box set will include the following:

The first 4 Turin Brakes albums issued on heavyweight vinyl

  • The Optimist LP
  • Ether Song
  • JackInABox
  • Dark On Fire (First ever vinyl pressing, which will also include Something Out Of Nothing EP on 10” heavyweight vinyl)

articlesharedimage-67006The box set, presumably, will include the regular editions of Ether Song (which came with several bonus discs in various forms), JackInABox (which came with a limited dvd). But it’s pretty cool the Something Out Of Nothing EP will be available on 10″ vinyl!

This will all be housed in deluxe outer slipcase and include a voucher to download digital versions of all 4 albums + the EP. The albums will be released in August. Universal, the label that has bought up EMI that has bought up Source Records that used to be Turin Brakes’ label, will be releasing the box set. The box set will cost 91 euros on its own.

Secret gig

If you spend some extra money, you can attend a ‘secret’ intimate London gig where the band will only play music from the Source Years. The gig will take place on 29 April 2017.  You can get one ticket for this gig (132 euros) or two for 166 euros). It doesn’t look like tickets will be available separately.

Interactive campaign

People can send in questions for the band to answer about the albums via e-mail. Details in this video:

Pre-orders (which include the gig tickets bundle) can be made here >>
