So, it’s been a bit of a lengthy process, but the new album is on it’s way. Recorded live w/ a 5 piece band last November, mixed and mastered earlier this year, the new Phil Smith & the Lights album ‘1,2,3,4…’ is due for release in the first week of September. Launching at The Old Museum here in Brisbane, Sat Sept 10, this album is a true throwback to the recording aesthetics of the late 60’s and 70’s. It was tracked live in an old dairy barn in just over 2 days, and will be released on 12 inch vinyl, as well as digital download and a deluxe edition CD with an extra track not available on the vinyl release, and extensive liner notes.
Shortly after the launch I will be heading to Europe for a 20 date solo tour of the Netherlands/ Belgium in support of my last album ‘Year Of The Dog’, after which I’m hoping to head back into the studio to record the follow up to that album.
Stay tuned for more news on the album launch!!
