Gale’s excellent solo album is coming out on the 21st of January 2022 and pre-orders are up now! Also: a new Turin Brakes album has been mixed and will be coming out in 2022 as well…
While those of us lucky enough to attend The Optimist 20th Anniversary Tour were able to buy an advance CD copy of Gale’s debut solo album, the general public has yet to hear more than the first single There She Goes. The album is now available to pre-order as a cd or limited clear vinyl at various UK music stores, including Norman Records, Resident Music and others. The Turin Brakes official store sells it as well. Juno has some preview clips if you’re interested… I’ve ordered mine at Resident Music just to be sure. We’ll see!
The press blurb of the project is as follows:
Meanwhile, Turin Brakes announced on the socials – including Instagram that they’ve finished mixing their new album at KONK studios, saying right before they finished the Acoustic Tour:
A twenty year round trip has led us back to KONK studio where we recorded The Optimist LP – as well as finishing mixing the NEW TB album with the amazing @yugyessam we will be doing acoustic shows this week , a few tickets left on See Tickets
While not much is known about the project yet, it’s a pretty safe bet to assume it was mostly recorded before and after lockdowns at the various home studios.
Next year will be busy for the band hopefully, with at least one new solo project and a new album later in the year. Before all that kicks off, however, stay tuned for some festive announcements in the next few days!
