Universal Music cancels Source Years vinyl box set

Universal Music have cancelled the upcoming vinyl box set featuring the first four Turin Brakes albums. The reasons for these are unclear, however, according to sources close to the band, this was a decision not made by the band themselves. Turin Brakes are, however, still playing the ‘secret’ gig celebrating the music from this Turin Brakes era. This is very good news for people who already made travel arrangements.

Tickets for the gig, taking place at the iconic 100 Club in London on 29 April go on sale tomorrow 9 am and are very limited. Fans who purchased tickets with the box set will have to buy them again in a special presale which is live now.

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:
