Richard Thompson is set to release his new studio album 'ELECTRIC’ on February 11th.
One of the finest guitarists to emerge from these Isles, Richard Thompson is seemingly in the mood to crank up the volume. After taking the step of recording his last album live in concert, the musician recently went back into the studio with an appetite for create something special.
Working with a stripped down group, Richard Thompson was accompanied throughout the sessions by drummer Michael Jerome and bassist Taras Prodaniuk. Buddy Miller oversaw sessions, with 'ELECTRIC' set to be released on February 11th.
New track 'Good Things Happen To Bad People' is online now. Perhaps the most visceral track Thompson has put his name to in some time, this is a direct, electric piece of songwriting capped off with a fantastic guitar solo.
