The electrifying former Led Zeppelin vocalist, now an accomplished solo performer, will be performing songs from his forthcoming album, ‘Carry Fire’, along with hits and rarities, at his one-off Hall date on Friday 8 December.

His band, The Sensational Space Shifters, will include Seth Lakeman, who features on three of the album’s tracks, playing viola and fiddle.

Lucy Noble, Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “Perhaps the most electrifying 15 minutes at the Hall this year was when Robert joined Nigel Kennedy on stage for a scintillating collaboration. He enjoyed the experience so much that he suggested coming back for a headline show – and we were more than happy to accept.

“Robert Plant is a bona-fide rock legend, and we’re thrilled that he’s chosen the Hall for his only London date. Fans will get the chance to bask in great music both old and new – including tracks from his sensational new record.”

Plant’s new album, ‘Carry Fire’, will be released on Monday 13 October on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records, his 11th solo album and first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed ‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’. It was produced by the singer at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios.

Special guests include Lakeman, Albanian cellist Redi Hasa, and Chrissie Hynde, who duets with Plant on “Bluebirds Over The Mountain”, written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and The Beach Boys.

As on his previous record, Plant is accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters: John Baggott on keyboards, moog, loops, percussion, drums, brass arrangement, t’bal, snare drum, slide guitar, piano, electric piano, bendir; Justin Adams on guitar, acoustic guitar, oud, E-bow quartet, percussion, snare drum, tambourine; Dave Smith on bendir, tambourine, djembe, drum kit; and Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson on dobro, guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, twelve-string.

Robert Plant and the band spent two years on the road together supporting ‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’, their unique sound and vision ultimately evolving into something even more creative and powerful. Robert, who lived in Texas for a time before returning to England three years ago, has spoken about the new songs, which meld unusual rhythms with naturalism and smouldering power.

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation,” he said.

The Royal Albert Hall show is part of a 15-date tour of the UK. For details of how to access the pre-sale, visit www.robertplant.com before 23:59 on the 20 August. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 25 August at 9am from www.royalalberthall.com.

Plant has appeared at the Royal Albert Hall seven times, debuting with Led Zeppelin on 29 June 1969, and last headlining as part of Bluesfest in October 2013.

– NEW SINGLE ‘COLOGNE’ NOW STREAMING ONLINE
 
– HOXTON HALL HEADLINE SHOW TICKETS ON SALE 
FOR NOVEMBER “HAUX WITH STRINGS” PERFORMANCE
 
 
Haux has today unveiled a brand new stand alone single, ‘Cologne’. From the whispered vocals of the opening phrase an echoing melody delicately builds, powered along by rhythmic piano and gently rolling percussion.
Haux is the smoky-eyed silhouette of photographer-turned-musician Woodson Black. His 2016 debut EP All We’ve Known was an individualistic experiment in multi-media expression that has gathered 50M streams throughout the world. Over the course of a year, Woodson carefully curated each step of the way – producing each song, photo, video and design from his quiet home in the Berkshires.
When it came time to tour, Woodson had never performed live or even played with other musicians. The first time he heard his voice through a microphone was at Haux’s first showcase in New York where he was sick with nerves backstage. The next performance was to a packed and silenced theatre at a festival in Germany. By the eighth show in February 2017, Haux headlined a sold out church in London, and went on to tour six different countries during the spring, including a stop in Cologne.
Speaking of the new release, Woodson himself explains: “I’ve realised there are so many places I haven’t seen in the world, so many faces that seem so familiar and yet somehow so far away. I try to imagine their lives and how they differ from my own. I know I’ll never really know, but there’s something about not knowing that gives me comfort and keeps me eager to see more people and places.
“There was a certain magic about Cologne. It struck me as a place that I might’ve had another life in if I hadn’t lived the life I have. When I was back home, off tour, I remembered that feeling and tried to imagine a life there and the story of what might have been”. 
Listen to / share ‘Cologne’ on SoundCloud and Spotify.
 

After a triumphant debut at The Great Escape festival as well as a run of headline shows around the UK earlier this year, Haux will return to London for a very special one-off show at the iconic Hoxton Hall in November where he’ll be accompanied by a string section. The show will be his last UK date of 2017 and promises to be a unique event. Tickets are onsale now (here) and full international tour dates for Haux are listed below.
The recently released ‘Touch’ showcased Haux’s ability to deliver something that on first hear could be described as stripped back but simultaneously feels very cinematic. The track went on to garner acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic for its “dreamy songwriting with a sting in the tail” (Clash), for being “like a moment of comfort in the eye of an icy hurricane” (The Line of Best Fit), and “absorbing” (New York Times).
HAUX INTERNATIONAL LIVE DATES:
Sep 9 SAT – Welcome Campers Festival – Otis, MA (USA)
Oct 26 THU – MS Stubnitz – Hamburg, Germany
Oct 28 SAT – Manic Street Parade – Munich, Germany
Oct 30 MON – B72 – Vienna, Austria

DEBUT ALBUM
PYRO
Out November 3rd on Marshall Records

18th August: The new single ‘Shine’ from hotly-tipped female rock duo REWS is out today. The release comes due to unprecedented early radio support from BBC Radio 1 with Huw Stephens, Kerrang Radio with Alex Baker, Planet Rock and Today FM (Ireland) – all of whom instantly started playing the track this week.

The single is available to buy and stream now on all major platforms, including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon. The enticing official video is available to watch on YouTube and Facebook.

– STREAM HAUX’S ADDICITVE NEW SINGLE ‘TOUCH
– UK TOUR DATES IN MAY, INCLUDING THE GREAT ESCAPE
Settled in the space between dreamy folk and electronic melancholy – Haux is the smoky-eyed silhouette of Woodson Black. Growing up in the Berkshires, the photographer-turned-musician found his voice while wandering the quiet woods and rural landscapes. He narrated life through film photographs, developing a pastoral aesthetic that would go on to inspire Haux. 
Haux has now shared a new single ‘Touch’, a dream-folk number drenched in emotive vocals and lyrics. ‘Touch’ engenders a sense of longing with its hauntingly poetic lyrics, “caught in the cold of when we met, with the heaviest hearts we were a silhouette”. The minimalist production on the song serves to catapult the raw and misty vocals, creating the feeling of a stripped down track that simultaneously feels very cinematic.
Listen to ‘Touch’ on Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/hauxofficial/touch
Speaking about ‘Touch’, Woodson shared: “I’ve always been drawn to the past. There’s something about it that’s both set in stone yet still awake. Touch brings the past into the present. It’s binds the details of someone you seldom remember with the nights that you always forget.”

Be sure to catch Haux in the UK in May as he plays The Lexington in London and Sound Control in Manchester, and makes his debut at The Great Escape. Full listings as follows (UK dates in bold).

– UNVEILS NEW SONG ‘IMMIGRANT BOOGIE
– UK TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Immigrant Boogie marks the first new material from Ghostpoet since the release of his third and much lauded, Mercury-nominated Shedding Skin album in 2015. The track also heralds news of a full UK / Irish tour in the Autumn – see below for full itinerary.
Swathed in post-punk virtuosity, Immigrant Boogie is a narrative only too pertinent in 2017.
Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe explains:
“It’s a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, partly intended to ask those who have questioned the arrival of refugees in recent times what they would do in the same situation.
The song is written in two halves – the first hopeful for a brighter future, while the second sees hope snatched away by forces beyond the control of the storyteller.
There is an important story to be told there, but I wrote the song in a way that aims to capture a broader human truth: that while we are all working for a better life for ourselves, we have to accept that we are not in control of the outcome”
Listen to ‘Immigrant Boogie’ on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7OkcTaMBrY

This is the first track to emerge from various sessions recorded over the past few months in Obaro’s hometown London.
Featuring Charlie Steen, drafted in from South London’s up and comers Shame on guest vocals and assisted by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Frightened Rabbit) on guitar and production duties, ‘Immigrant Boogie’ marks a stunning return.
Ghostpoet has produced three critically acclaimed albums in his career thus far, of which two were Mercury nominated. All three projects have received widespread recognition from critics and playlists alike.
‘Immigrant Boogie’ is yet another addition to an increasingly versatile catalogue and testament to an artist who always strives to stimulate and provoke.
Since his most recent offering ‘Shedding Skin’, Obaro has been busy performing live and writing. Noteworthy appearances include a memorable set at BST in Hyde Park, as well as a collaboration with Massive attack on the track Come Near Me.
GHOSTPOET LIVE DATES:
Oct 24th, DUBLIN, Button Factory
Oct 25th, LIVERPOOL, Invisible Wind Factory

YOUTH KILLED IT
RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR
“WHAT HAPPENED”

DEBUT ALBUM “MODERN BOLLOTICS” OUT ON 12TH MAY

Youth Killed It have released a new video for the single “What Happened”, taken from their upcoming album “Modern Bollotics” out on 12th May 2017 via Rude Records. Physical pre-orders are available here. For the digital version, click here.

Watch the video for “What Happened” here: https://youtu.be/IAjOHoOO8wk“The track and video are a story about coming of age and growing up. Suddenly one day you’re laying in bed, thinking about where the last 10 years have gone and you realize that leaving adolescence behind is the single most significant thing to happen to you” explains frontman Jack Murphy. 

“You go from worrying about having the coolest trainers (the ones with the lights were the s**t in my opinion) or who’s got the rarest Pokemon card, to juggling responsibilities like money, rent and bills. As a kid, having £50 felt like you were an absolute baller. You could do anything you wanted. As an adult, there is that realisation you pay much more than £50 per month, on tax alone. Some of us were lucky enough to have a massive group of friends at school that you would see every day. Now, you have a select few who you can only see on the rare occasion you’re all available. We all take our younger years for granted and spend the rest of our lives imagining what it would be like for it to be that simple again.”

The band will be supporting their new record on a UK tour, so make sure you catch the band on one of the following dates:

11.05 – London, Boston Music Room (supporting The One Hundred)
13.05 – Southampton, Hanger Farm Arts Centre
14.05 – Manchester, Satans Hollow
15.05 – Leeds, The Packhorse
16.05 – Leicester, The Shed
17.05 – Norwich, Epic Studios
18.05 – Birmingham, Subside

Firing up your imagination and getting creative is a big part of the Camp Bestival experience. From dressing up as Pop Stars & Rock Stars, getting your glitter on in Art Town and woodworking in Spinney Hollow to awesomely entertaining circus acrobats, wondrous theatre shows and the simple joys of cavorting with your nearest and dearest, the possibilities for creative play are everywhere in our tenth anniversary festi-holiday wonderland. So, delve into the innovative and inspirational and get creative and be free! And once your inner-artist is content, grab your dancing shoes and join us for record breaking disco ball action, lots more DJ love and fantastic live music with some proper pop stars too, from 27-30 July at Lulworth Castle.

Rob da Bank says: “The Camp Bestival story continues to hot up with Anne-Marie and Reverend and the Makers joining the party. We are also hiring a ruddy huge crane to bring you the World’s Largest Disco Ball, and not just with any old DJs, but with a stellar cast of late night party starters from Sara Cox and the Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon to our mate Bez and a brand-new teen night too… see you at the castle”.

He’s the king of kids’ TV when it comes to things to make and do, so we are super-excited to announce that Mister Maker will be making his debut at this year’s Camp Bestival. A wellspring of inventiveness and a master of colour and shapes, Mister Maker is a sure-fire source of inspiration when it comes to creative play and we can wait to see him.

We are also delighted to reveal The Bear & the Piano live in the Dingly Dell. Winner of 2016’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Best Illustrated Book, don’t miss this series of magical storytelling sessions, craft and musical workshops based on David Litchfield’s beautiful story of friendship.

We’ll also have jaw-dropping spectacles including our amorous automaton, The Love Bot, the return of the World’s Biggest Bouncy Castle and the Bestival Inflatable Church & Wedding Disco. And there will be craftsmanship and wood carving galore in Spinney Hollow, bugtastic acrobatics as The Insect Circus presents the Greatest Show on Earth, and the ramshackle wonders of Caravanserai.

You’ll be able to build your magnum opus and design the ultimate glam get up when you get involved with Art Town: Pop Stars & Rock Stars Creations. And you can marvel at Marawa’s Majorettes and join in off-the-wall fun and games with the Bestival Bluecoats. With so much more to explore throughout the weekend make sure you join in with all the creativity.

As part of our tenth anniversary celebrations we are thrilled that one of our biggest and best ever record-breaking creations, The World’s Largest Disco Ball will be coming to Camp Bestival. But that’s not all, we’ll have uninhibited entertainment at a brand new dance destination bathed in our mirrored globe’s glittering light with a series of ace Big Discos.

So, don’t miss our daily Kids’ Disco every evening, with Rob da Bank & friends getting the tots rocking. And there will be some proper late night disco action for mums and dads too. Friday night’s Big Disco action will come courtesy of Sara Cox presents Just Can’t Get Enough 80s with a luxuriance of big-haired dancefloor gems, and Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon with his Big Boonarmy Bash playing hits from the cream of the indie scene. Saturday will see misunderstood broadcasting genius Barry Peters (AKA The Cuban Brothers’ main man Miguel) taking yacht rock to improbable new heights with Halifax Hospital Radio Live, while Sunday’s refulgent rave-up will have us throwing shapes to Happy Monday’s legend Bez and his Indie Disco to Hacienda House Set. And making sure there’s dancefloor action for everyone, we’ll also have a Teen Big Disco Party – featuring grime, hip-hop, rock and pop with some special guest DJs.

Upping Camp Bestival’s tenth anniversary dance game big time, we’ll also have booty shaking sets from Eats Everything who will be going on an old skool tip, bass-led grooves from Shadow Child and Greco Roman Soundsystem, while hardcore behaviour is to be expected from Raindance who will be winding up the whistle posse with Altern-8, Daniel Billy Bunter, Shades of Rhythm, DJ Faydz, Liquid, Rachel Wallace and 2 Bad Mice. Plus, we’ll have hip-swinging manoeuvres from Lady Jane Bongo, Jim8track, DJ Dapper Dan and Dr DJ & Bollywood Dancers.

She’s queen of the charts having just spent nine weeks on the top spot with Rockabye her collaboration with Clean Bandit, so we are over the moon to reveal that Anne-Marie will be helping us to celebrate Camp Bestival’s tenth anniversary! An undeniable superstar, Anne Marie has a history of blowing crowds away whenever she plays, so hold on to your hats when she hits the Castle stage for what will be an unmissable set of sublime pop music! And ensuring there’s plenty more live music across the weekend there will also be performances from Sheffield quintet Reverend and The Makers, sea shanty super stars Skinny Lister, tastemakers’ top pick Louis Berry, Brit-reggae quartet The Skints, The Voice star Laura Oakes, exotic psychedelia from Flamingods, the veritable heart and soul of the 80s T’Pau and Liverpool’s finest The Christians.

From artistry and imagination to rocking out and cutting loose, we’ve got it all at Camp Bestival, the ultimate family festival.
