What a way to end the week! We have been delighted to bring you lockdown live performances from great artists around the world, giving you a chance to catch some excellent shows from the comfort of home. For today, the great Drew Danburry has shared two new songs exclusively with AUK. Both performances are stripped back versions 0f songs from Danburry’s upcoming album, which will be released on 8th September. The new band/project and album, ‘Icarus Phoenix’, will be released on cassette only.
Danburry wrote about 40 songs for the new album, during a difficult period in his life, as a means of working through his mental and emotional challenges. It was then that he met Rabbit. After chance encounters in a coffee shop and a karaoke bar, she ended up effortlessly singing beautiful harmonies on songs she’d never heard before. Danburry has described the sessions as, “…magic…life-changing.” Over 20 albums and 400 songs into his solo career, Drew Danburry is refreshed and renewed. Look out for the new album, which you’ll be able to purchase from:
In the meantime, enjoy the show and stay safe out there.
