New album now available to pre-order at discounted early-bird prices – including immediate download of single! Special pre-order bundles include five test pressing LPs with original hand-drawn artwork by Sarah, plus T-shirts and a limited-edition hardcover book.
I’m delighted to announce that my fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous will be released on 2nd February 2018 and is now available to pre-order. Produced by guitar legend Michael Chapman (memorably described in The Guardian as “the godfather of new cosmic Americana”), the album features what I’m convinced is by far my best batch of original songs and instrumentals ever ... plus another co-write with the wonderful Gerry O’Beirne, an arrangement of the medieval chant “Dies Irae” and a cover of Jeff Wayne’s classic “Forever Autumn”. In addition to my custom-made Andy Manson and 1965 Martin D-28 acoustic guitars, I’m also playing electric guitar (a lovely Ibanez Artist model that Michael’s kindly given me on long-term loan) and piano!
I’d like to be able to release it on LP as well as CD – but I need to be assured of sufficient demand. I’m offering it on 180g heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve at a discounted price of £15 (rising to £18 on release). I’ll need to commit to the order before the end of this month to have it delivered in time, so please pre-order your copy as soon as possible. I can’t take the risk without your support.
In order to help cover the cost, I’m looking for five Vinyl Sponsors to contribute at least £300 each – and ideally more. In return, you’ll receive a bundle of goodies including one of the five test pressings in a white sleeve on which I’ll hand-draw a personalised version of my original cover artwork. There are only 5 of these, and when they’re gone, they’re gone! Get your order in quickly, and please be as generous as you can.
Other bundle options include heavyweight 100% cotton screen-printed T-shirts. Tack on an extra contribution of at least £40 and you’ll also get a limited-edition hardcover 30-page book – ONLY AVAILABLE WITH PRE-ORDER – printed on 148gsm Mohawk Superfine uncoated eggshell-finish archival quality photo paper, containing behind-the-scenes photographs and reminiscences from the album recording sessions, photo shoot and video shoot.
The test pressing, LP, CD and book can all be signed with a personal message on request. Included with all pre-orders is an IMMEDIATE download of “The Tug Of The Moon”, the first single from the album.
I’m very excited about this album, and hope you’ll love it as much as I do. Click here to get your order in now!
