Includes some special gigs with the old Lemon Squeezer. Whoop whoop!

Liverpool-based Americana singer-songwriter has announced details of a new album “Barriers” which will be released June 21st Via Thirty Tigers and about time too we at AUK Towers say. Vincent has also released a third new track from the album this week entitled ‘Burden’, following the previous release of two tracks in ‘The Insider’ and ‘Follow What You Love & Love Will Follow’. You can listen to it below, To cap an excellent week he has also announced that he will be the special guest at three of Robert Plant’s UK Shows on April 30th in Harrogate at the Royal Hall, May 1st at the Globe Theatre in Stockton and on May 3rd at Warwick Arts Centre.

On ‘Burden’ Robert Vincent commented: ‘I wrote Burden to explore the feeling of guilt we have at times to be good people and live the best life we can, but sometimes this comes at a price to our world and environment. How we, as ordinary people, are almost made to feel the collective weight and guilt of the pressures and troubles of the world, that ultimately can only be changed by the political decision makers in our society. We carry the same worries, fears and ‘Burdens’ no matter who we are, and ultimately we are all trying to live peacefully in the same world.’

This release follows the excitement surrounding the first track from the album, ‘The Insider’, a statement of intent with a superb music video starring fellow Liverpudlian, actor David Morrissey. Morrissey became a fan of Robert’s after seeing him play Black Deer Festival. Vincent also marked the launch of new music with a majestic homecoming show at Liverpool’s Royal Philharmonic in late 2023.

The new album showcases a broader, more ambitious sound for Robert Vincent and whilst 2020’s AMA winning album “In this Town You’re Owned” was born from socio-political commentary, Vincent’s upcoming project is inspired by personal experiences, culminating in perhaps some of most impressive songcraft of his career. Vincent comments, “Barriers has more of an intimate sound. The songs began to take shape during lockdown through to 2022 and are born from testing personal experiences, rather than the pure social commentary of the last album. This is a very inward set of songs, but I think it will resonate with people facing their own demons.”

Vincent is currently on tour. Catch him if you can.
