Guitar legend BERNIE TORMÉ releases his new triple album next month and hits the road to coincide.
Dublin Cowboy is the result of a phenomenally successful PledgeMusic campaign that hit its original target in under nine hours.
Comprising 29 tracks in total, the album features a disc each of brand new electric and acoustic material, while a third disc adds a live recording from South Shields in January 2016, featuring classic tracks from Tormé’s 40-year career.
“I always wanted to do a triple album and also an acoustic album,” he says. “And combining the two seemed like the obvious idea, though truth is it nearly killed me: I’m still in recovery! But on top of all that, and with two albums of screaming wails and dive-bombs, I am totally knocked out with how the shred-free acoustic album has been received! Fans who pledged and have heard it absolutely LOVE it! Quadruple album next time? Nah, I really don’t think so!”
Dublin Cowboy is released on CD, vinyl and download through Retrowrek Records on Friday 7 April, and is available to pre-order here.
